    Longing For Too Long

    I have been single for about three years now and I can't seem to finally get over my ex. I felt so much towards him and then things just fell apart. I moved away, we had many fights, long distance didn't work, and words were said. I saw us doing a lot of first together or at...

    After being in a relationship for a year, My ex then toyed with my emotions for the past 2 years after that. Up to a few days ago. Even though he is no longer in my life, has a new girlfriend and what not- I feel like he still has some power over me. And I know, someone doesnt...

    I keep thinking I'm past it

    and that I can move on. I want things to just be like they were and wake up from this night mare. But every time I'm ready to let go of the anger and take my husbands hand and walk forward I can't. Something stops me. The doubt, the paranoia, the anger that just sits there...

    I have been dating the same guy for over 2 years now and it has been one hell of a ride. Within the first few months of us dating I discovered emails between him and his ex gf saying that he was still in love with her. He swore to me that he didn't mean it he was just trying to...

    There's something I can't get over.

    ...a man that I loved for so long, and he the same. Things have changed recently, and I'm trying my best to let it go and move on. Any ideas on how to not let it captivate my mind 24/7?

    It's very easy for someone to say "get over it"

    when your toxic relationship comes to an end. But it's not always that easy. A relationship with a sociopath can take years to recover from. Every moment from beginning to end was a calculated move intended to DISTURB your life, to DOMINATE you, to BELITTLE you, to DESTROY you...
