While You Were Out

In the time since I was dumped, I managed to resolve a stressful, complicated tax situation, go back to school, start a new career that I've always dreamed of, and pay off my debts. I did all of this despite having a very, very blindsided and broken heart. It was't easy. And yes, I still miss him and I still mourn the loss of the future I thought I'd have with him. It saddens and scares me, especially at my age. And I don't know when that will go away. But I'm proud of myself. Sometimes, when I think about him feeling sorry for me, I daydream about telling him all that I've accomplished. Like, "I've been kicking ass and taking names, buddy, don't worry about me." To any other broken hearts out there: Keep moving forward. Tackle life — slowly, if you need to. But do it, and do it for yourself. You're worth it. You got this.

I'm sorry you got dumped, I've been dumped too, but I'm sure it had nothing to do with your tax situation, lack of education, career plans, or your debts. Not sure I can say the same for myself though. But I'm good to go again. I just had to find a new muse to occupy myself with. It was just as simple as that.

Kicking the World's ass all by yourself. Perhaps it was for the best he got out of the way of those roundhouses

Almost word for word I was like you. I was in 3rd year and my ex came back under pretence of "being friends" and went on to mess sh*t up.

Its empty. After dumping my abusive ex gf, I am left feeling spent, weary and fed up. I cant invest anything more into this place or its people. Im moving forward by moving far away from this place. I tried.

Damn you sound like a machine girl.
All by yourself huh
No friends
No family
No support from anyone.
No place of your own.
All alone.
Good for you.

As someone whose relationship is definitely heading into trainwreck territory, I appreciate your advice.

You're a resilient human being with a heart of gold.
Great confession.
Moving on takes time.
It's hard sometimes.
We can all choose to live our best.
