New Felt Regret Over Past Relationship
I don't know what has happened to me. I was in a 3 year relationship that began 6 years ago. He really loved me. We broke up because we weren't getting along, due in part to us having communication & I depression issues, but remained friends afterwards. We stayed in touch after he moved to another town. About 1 1/2 years ago he was seeing a woman who became pregnant after a few months and they married. Our communication faded over time, and I understood. Over the past three years I have been diagnosed with a thyroid disorder and have personally gotten older and wiser about what I'm looking for in a relationship. For some reason I woke up this morning with this horrible feeling of regret over our relationship ending. I don't understand why now. I've been crying all day (I haven't cried in years, so this is very unusual for me). I truly am glad he has found someone but I don't understand why I'm upset now or why reacting so strongly. I gave him a call to catch up thinking this would help and the conversation was fine, how are you's, etc. I didn't mention the crying or regret (no need to put him in an awkward situation). But I still have been crying for a few hours. Any advice on what's going on? I'm currently single (no recent break-ups), have a good job, home, etc, no recent relationship problems.
