    It'S Only Been Two Months

    I am so hurt and crushed right now and I can't stop crying. Eventhough I'm the one that broke it off I'm still hurt. He cheated on me 3 different times and he was verbally abusive. I took it for two years and I loved him but I couldn't take the cheating and verbal abuse...

    Every Day Gets A Little Better

    I'm starting to feel a little better since the break up. I am truly starting to realize that things were not my fault. I can't wait when the day comes that I am completely over this. Emotionally I have my good days and bad days but I'm making progress.

    I had this idea in my head

    that seemed brilliant at the time. Break up with him, and he will begin to understand my feelings more. "You'll get back together after like 3 days and everything will be fine again"-or so, this is what I truly believed in my mind. Why did I break up with him? What was I trying...

    After about 18 months,

    I realised I don't love him anymore. Hid it for a bit, thinking it was just a phase. It wasn't. The days dragged on. I decided to tell him how I felt. We agreed to work on it. The feelings I felt before didn't come back. There was a lack of passion and desire and I didn't feel...

    He imposes his egocentric definition of love.

    No wonder I didn't feel anything for him to be straightforward.
