So sorry to hear about your dad <<<<hug>>>>

There are so many aspects to the bond we had with our exes, and yes of course there are things we’ll miss – afterall if they were constantly bad towards us we wouldn’t be here now, would we? What you said struck a cord – I miss his hugs and some of his supportive words. And yes, this meant I’d bring all my sadness to him, ready to exploit. Like you, I can see my depression was heavily exploited by our exes.

I’m very early in this process, but like you I long to be in a relationship again. I believe it will happen one day, and it will be a healthy and happy relationship if I use this time now to heal and recover my self esteem and even my identity.
