Victory!

Something I thought would never happen finally did. I happened to be in the same place at the same time as my ex; the person who broke my heart a thousand times and left me completely shattered. But when I saw him I felt NOTHING. Just free! Lighter and happier. I thought this day would never come, and I was wrong. So just hang in there all you heartbroken people, because it will happen for you too. : )

Similar for me, not an ex just a guy who treated me in such a disgusting way, game after game, all I was was a big joke to him, he tried to break me but failed, just a total pos, could never be vulnerable, can but won't ever apologize. I thought I would feel something on seeing him after so much time had passed but I was surprised to feel calm and nothingness. I guess when you lose complete respect for them all that's left to do is have the last laugh.

Good for you

Their guilty conscience

May 20, 2022 at 9:54pm

My favourite is when they're an anxiety ridden mess destroyed by their guilt and actions that they squirm, hide, run (slither?), speed away. Had the fortune of seeing that twice in the last week. Life is good and those scales will always balance for the pure hearted.

Were we in a relationship with the same person lol? Because you’re describing my ex perfectly. Going no-contact with someone who traumatized you isn’t easy, but it’s definitely the best way to get over them. And for sure, by the time it ended for good (many, many years of torment) I had no respect left for him because he had proven himself to be unworthy of it.

Something ain't right

May 22, 2022 at 10:45am

This isn't so much about the OP as the others compelled to empathize that leaves me confused. I'm sorry, but I can't see how anyone can say they are "over" someone when they go out of their way to talk about them, especially when referring to them as a pos and other extreme descriptives. That's a lot of emotion. If they really felt nothing, they wouldn't care enough to make the effort to broadcast it; that point of caring less is really when one would have moved on. So, who are they saying this to? Their "ex"? Or... really... to themselves in the hopes they'll believe their own sales pitch? Because the louder and more vigorous one is, the more opposite they deep down truly feel.

Doesn’t it occur to you that perhaps the reason I posted it is because I was so surprised and happy that it was so easy? Why do you immediately jump to the conclusion that everyone must have an ulterior motive for everything they write on here? Perhaps we just want to share an event that meant something to us, which is why I made my post. I’m congratulating myself on achieving something that I didn’t think was possible. It was a surprise and a relief. That’s all. No deep dark nefarious reason. Sorry to disappoint you. Your cynical responses to so many posts when anyone says anything about how they feel about a former relationship speaks quite a lot about your own inner demons you know. Maybe just a little projecting going on?

Projecting defensively doesn't add to your credibility. Again, it begs the question of who one is trying to convince.

You sure do like to argue with people about their personal motives don’t you? Such a strange pass time given that you know absolutely nothing about them other than the few words they wrote on an anonymous forum. It must be nice being so omnipotent that you can deduce everyone’s inner thoughts from so little information! The point you’re missing is that since the post was written by ME, I’m the only one who can say for certain what I was thinking when I wrote it, how I felt at the time, how I feel about the ex in question, and what I feel about the relationship I had with him. You, a complete stranger to me, have zero knowledge about any of that. So I’m not “projecting defensively”, I’m stating a fact. You know NOTHING, so stop assuming that you do.

It wasn't a romantic relationship but it's been long term dealing with their s**t, it's possible they're the same. Some of the things I read on here, in this post and others, I get a sense is about the same guy, that or it's a clear type. Keep celebrating yourself, don't let a loud ego projecting take away from your confidence or happiness. I think your advice of no contact is perfect, it's tempting to want to respond and "defend" yourself against people who thrive in provoking reactions and keeping their "tormented" in a constant state confusion and misery but you can never "win" with these types. Keep your peace.

How did I miss this confession?

Opposite sex, but same sh*t. 2022 has been the best year on record from the steps getting to be free.
