I Ended A Toxic Relationship

Ending toxic relationships with people you care about is never easy 125 People

    I read through my past stories with bittersweet

    emotion. The woman I was last summer, still reeling from the breakup and in so much pain...the anger I eventually felt at wanting to 'get even' in my attempt to move on...the resignation and attempt at peace when I finally went no contact and let go. And now, three months...

    I hid a goodbye letter

    and my favorite sexy underwear underneath his pillow after we had rough hard sex... No regrets. Atleast he got a remembrance. My only way of moving on. I will never forget you. It was just full of pure lust and infatuation. I don't need that.

    Toxic comes in many forms,

    the thing that they all have in common is you never know the extent of the damage until later, in my case, 3 years later I'm still discovering. The question "will I ever be healed or will I always be damaged?" Is my reality. For me, tying up the loose ends of a 15 year...

    The Next Step

    It's been one month since I've been "clean"...no contact, no phone calls, no texts, no emails. Silence. I tell myself it's for the best, and I am starting to believe it. Joe was such a part of my world for so long that I had to learn how to function again without him...

    Just last night, I ended my relationship with

    my (now ex) fiance. We'd been together for the better part of 4 years, off and on with lots of difficulty and drama because of him, yet I loved him very much. But I chose to end it, because while he'd told me that he wanted to work out some issues we'd been having (things that...

    I thought I really loved him,

    but it wasn't love at all - not on his part anyway. He was manipulative and cruel, and the relationship I am in now has taught me more than I ever could have known about my previous relationship. I'm glad I got out of it while there was still time to make a change. I can only be...

    Getting My Self To Gether

    I recently ended a relationship that was bad for my health.. It took a stay in the hospital to wake me up.. My message: don't let bad relationships go on because it is easier to stay... I know it is easy to say, but I like everyone had to overcome issues to get away, I did it and...

    Come Hell Or High Water: I'm Outta Here!

    Long story short: I was in a mutually toxic relationship and I pulled the plug before I hit the 10 year mark of complete misery. The universe spoke to me one day in June when I had pretty much made my decision to up and leave. The city was bracing for disaster as 100+ mm of rain...

    Picking Up The Pieces And Moving On

    My life is a hollow shell where he once was. When he was in my life it was full, complete, loved. All about him, and I happily supplied his need, because he was my 'fix' as well. I loved taking care of him. He was magic. Like a drug. In th back of my mind I knew it would...

    Goodbye Father

    It was one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make, but then again ending relationships is never easy, especially when you care about the person. At the end of the day you have to think about the way the person makes you feel, if they are supportive of your goals...
