Thread Name: BS: Breaking Up is Hard to Do_Redux
Subject: RE: Breaking up is hard to do
It is difficult to believe, but it does get easier with time and, for most people, a broken relationship can be looked back on, given time, with equanimity or even "Why the hell did I get involved there?"

There are various stages of grieving to go through, as with any type of loss, but reason generally wins out in the end and it is possible to look back and see that that particular set up just wouldn't have survived the long run.

As Amos says, keep breathing deep breaths. Talk to whoever will listen, start looking at yourself in a positive manner. Try to avoid starting a new relationship too soon, learn to like yourself before getting involved with anyone else.

All the best to you - I think the majority of us have been there and can remember just what it was like. Most of us will listen if you need to 'talk'.
