However, I am finding this break up really difficult to deal with, probably the hardest experience in my life to date. I am trying to move on with life but i have this whole in my stomach. My boyfriend was the one to end the relationship as he needs to have a break in our relationship and be able to do more in his life without compromising for a bit. As he has been the only one since I was 16 years old, life has changed immensly. He just turned 25 at the end of last year and I think he has hit a point where he realises he isn't getting any younger and time is getting away. I am going through what i think is the prelimenary stages of the 'grieving process' and wouldn't mind hearing some comments of people who are currently or have gone through a similar experience. Any comments would be appreciated.
I do understand exactly what you are going through, I am also going through a seperation, it has been six weeks now, go easy with your self, I know I tend to mimimise the situation, when I hear other peoples situations.
When you have lost someone that has been a deep part of your life, your world is ruptured and understandly ther is a emptiness that is indescribable.
feelings of unbearable pain, hurt, rejection, and total confusion, asking questions like why, what happened, fear of the future, it is a time of insanity.
I too am holding on to just one day at a time, getting through the best way you possibly can.
