    It has broken me as a woman.

    I feel inadequate and unattractive. I don't know how to get over this betrayal. I wish I knew what was wrong with me so I could fix it and make my lover happy and fulfilled physically and emotionally.

    Why did I think I could be different?

    I thought his love for me was genuine and in return my love would fix his emptiness. I'm foolish to have trusted him and believed in him. I hate this lonely part of moving on. I have to stop letting him suck me back into him. The only way forward is to move on.

    I guess none of if matters anymore.

    It has happened so many times with so many women it's like second nature to him. He never really knew how to love anyway. I see now I have to rebuild and love myself again. I have to break the cycle of trying to fix these broken "partners" who end up breaking me along the way.
