    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...

    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?
