Re: My journal-Making it about me now
Yes it is tough. He has been part of your identity, your habits, and no matter how much he has hurt you, love takes time to fall out of. It is easier to fall in love than out of it. Your learning to be you again, and what does you entail now. Until you detach, your logica, and feelings are at odds. Eventually, the feelings do fade enough where your logical side and emotional side will line more together when it is concerning him. So, the conflict will only last as long as the feelings last. Plus, he is bringing his flaws into his new relationship. Whatever his issues are, his new partner will have to deal with it.
I am such a tree hugger because it gives me wood!
