I wished him well and we went no contact for about 2 months.
Keep in my we work together and only hi's were exchanged during this time.
Some people are perfectly capable of being chums with their past loves, particularly if their break-ups were mutual, the relationship was more platonic than passionate, or if they jointly outgrew each other.
In fact, I am friendly with a couple exes, but it is because they fit into one of the above categories.
No one should suffocate beneath pain on top of pain.
He’s not yet my boyfriend but I plan to answer him around January 1st of next year.
“Pain is a pesky part of being human, I've learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air!
We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.” ― C. tags: beauty, experience, flight, flying, freedom, growing, growth, heal, healing, hurt, hurting, inspirational, inspirational-life, inspirational-quotes, inspiring, learning, life, life-and-living, life-lessons, living, living-life, pain, painful, wind, wings, wisdom, wisdom-in-life, wisdom-quotes “It's my experience that people are a lot more sympathetic if they can see you hurting, and for the millionth time in my life I wish for measles or smallpox or some other easily understood disease just to make it easier on me and also on them.” ― Jennifer Niven, “To be rejected by someone doesn't mean you should also reject yourself or that you should think of yourself as a lesser person.
Truth to be told, I have never been in a serious relationship nor have I been liked by the guys I liked.
But I have been courted by guys but never have I answered them. But for the past two days, I’ve been thinking these things even when he’s there.
