I am now starting over having made the devastatingly difficult decision to end an unhealthy relationship with my girlfriend. She attempted suicide in late may and has since only made a halfhearted effort at group therapy, avoided solo therapy and slipped back into her old habits against all advice. I am heartbroken to say the least. She told me that she would be following their advice on avoiding relationships for a year but I know that she has joined a dating site and is getting lots of attention because she is gorgeous.
I need to let go and move on to a healthy relationship. I need amazing friends to help me thru. I need to discover the dreams I have forgotten. I need to embark on the Hero journey but what is the first step to find my courage to love again. What am I supposed to learn from all of this? I spent everything I had trying to support her while she was depressed. I quit my soul sucking job since and don’t know what to do. I thought love would heal all this but either I didn’t have enough or do enough.
How do I start over and be the love that is needed in the world? How do I create and or attract an authentically awesome life from here?
