Thank you for sharing your experience and feelings, I’m sorry it has taken so long for you to get a reply to your post. How are you? It is a courageous thing to reach out and talk about difficult and painful experiences. The emotions you described (sadness, shame, anger) are normal and understandable. I too was in a long term, long distance relationship and totally unprepared for the end of that relationship. He had been my first “everything” (boyfriend) and I had shared my 20s with him – when he cut off all communication I was devastated. I couldn’t picture a future without him because I believed we would always be together. I share this with you to tell you that you are not alone in the feelings you have described or in the questions you are asking yourself. I also want to share that with time I came to accept the loss of that relationship and the grief that it had caused me with new understanding. It was so hard but finding support around me to help through that time really helped. I hope that since you last posted you have been able to find support and you are not so tired and sad. There are excellent resources on the Griefline Website which may help with ways to help you through this time. The Griefline Helpline is available Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm 1300 845 745 or you can book a call back from one of our trained volunteers if you need to speak to someone about how you’re feeling. I hope today is a good day for you – can you let us know how you are going?
