    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...

    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 don't even think I want to. Because I don't want to move on. Because if I move on it means it's over. And it can't be over. I can't be okay with that.
