Dating someone whos been arrested
Yet something changed inside of me during that time and now I say this almost every day: when you are slammed against a concrete wall and thrown down a flight of stairs…when YOU are YOUR ONLY HOPE for survival and no higher being is there to lift you out of an awful situation, your hope lies within your own heart. I knew I was the only one PERSON who could save myself. I’m not ready because I don’t trust anyone that I don’t know. I have to feel strong enough that I won’t second guess every move I make. How could I ever create a successful relationship from that? Downplaying the severity isn’t helpful; it’s denial. Some days are easier than others; I know it’s getting better. The world isn’t one that seems to hold opportunity on those days. On those days I have to remind myself that I was in such a devastatingly bad place a year prior.
Your ex moving on is not a testament to your inadequacy. Your relationship was unique and special and nothing can ever take away from that.
Months and sometimes years after a relationship, my heart rate still accelerates when I see an ex is dating someone new on Facebook. But that didn't stop his new profile picture, with an unknown woman next to him.
