Re: Taking back an abusive ex?

I was going to talk to my therapist last Thursday, but she was sick and had to cancel. I see her this Thursday. I think the reason I define my worth that way, is because I never had any self worth until I was with someone. And I don't know, it just kind of stuck. Lately I've been trying to get back ...

Re: Taking back an abusive ex?

Its just made it really hard. The only self worth I have is when I'm caring for and loving someone. I put my all into my relationships because its the only thing I feel like gives me value. It hurt when she left, but at least I could think that at least I treated her the best I could. But after what...

Re: Taking back an abusive ex?

She responded. It wasnt worth it. All I did was try to offer an olive branch, and she demeaned me and put me down. This is the worst I've felt in a long time. I didn't even feel this bad after we broke up. It's like what I did meant nothing, and I did so much. I'm talking to my counselor about it to...

I'm anxious to see what she says.. but it's not as bad as it was before. Thank you all for the support. I'm sorry if I've disappointed any o...

Re: Taking back an abusive ex?

In response to Sam.. I big part of it is the anxiety she gives me. Theres been so much going on lately, the virus, economic instability, a recent earthquake; I've just been so worried about her. She has a really hard time taking care of herself, and every day I'm afraid if what kind of situation she...

Re: Taking back an abusive ex?

Update... My counselor is no longer advising me to reach out to Hailey. We both fear she has gotten I to a cycle of substance abuse. Back when we were together she replaced coping using her eating disorder and would abuse her anti anxiety medications. Recently she reached out to a friend of mine ask...

Re: Taking back an abusive ex?

@Alexa I will try to talk with my counselor about it more. I dont even know what kind of boundries I'm supposed to have. I always think of it in a sense of what I would need if we were to get back together; but I dont know if that's where I need to be. I guess the first thing would be, we'd have to ...

@Heather

I have my next session coming up on Thursday. I'm going to talk to my counselor about it more. I think I might do it. Like, I feel like I have to talk to her again.

Re: Taking back an abusive ex?

@Heather Yes, I'm keeping myself safe. My state wasn't hit too hard, but that could change at any moment. I hope you all are keeping safe as well. One of my counselor's goals from the get go was to get le to a point where, if Hailey were to come back I to my life, I would be able to effectively set ...

Re: Taking back an abusive ex?

@al The first time I went into counseling, I expressed that I'd do anything to hear from Hailey again. Then we started talking about the situation, and she told me I'd probably hear from her again. We've moved forward under the assumption that I would talk to her if she were to reach out. So since t...

Re: Taking back an abusive ex?

Update.. I have been in counseling for a few weeks now. I'm also seeing a psychiatrist who is reevaluating my medications. Counseling has been hard. The counselor makes comments quite often about how she thinks I will hear from hailey again. It gives me a lot of mixed feelings. I still feel vulnerab...

Re: Taking back an abusive ex?

Hello, It's been a while since I've been on here. I'm currently undergoing therapy. A appreciate all of you. For both your time and your advice. I'm trying to get out more, and distract myself with the things I used to love doing. It's still really hard right now. I know I'm just remembering the rel...

Re: Taking back an abusive ex?

Next week hopefully. I've had to put it off because I didnt have the money. But next week I should be starting. If you have any advice on not thinking that way anymore, I'd love to hear it. My biggest fear is not finding someone who let's me be myself and loves me for who I am. That was one of the p...

Re: Taking back an abusive ex?

I just hope therapy will be able to help. I cant get her out of my head. I've never remembered my dreams, and now I dream about her every night. I miss her so much. We were inseparable when we were together, and I'm afraid I wont find that again. And even if I do, I still just want it to be with her...

Re: Taking back an abusive ex?

You both are right. Sometimes I just feel desperate to have the life I used to have. Sure it didn't leave me in the best situation, but it was comfortable, and I thought I was happy at the time. Which sometimes feels like it would be better than knowing I'm not happy now. I wouldn't expect you to su...

Re: Taking back an abusive ex?

I guess I just cant imagine not giving her a second chance. I'd feel like I was blaming her, but I dont. She has a a messed up past, she's been abused by several people, and she has a lot of mental things she's trying to work through. I've always told myself things would get better if she got the he...

Taking back an abusive ex?

Hello. I've posted another thread that I'm still keeping up to date on, but I didnt know whether to post this there, or start a new thread. Basically, I'm fairly fresh out of an abusive relationship. I'm doing what I can to recover from it. It's been hard but I think I'm making progress. But the thi...

Re: Trouble recovering

I'll definitely try looking into some of those groups. Making friends has always been hard, and I'm pretty silent around people I don't know. But it's still worth a shot. It would help me get out of the house which I need right now. I might check out that lecture on Saturn, it does seem really inter...

Certain ones I just cant play right now but there I some I still can. I also like table top and card games, magic being the bigges...

I brought her into all of my interests and hobbies so doing some things, like playing certain games or reading certain books, bring back a flood of memories and feelings, and I need t...

Trouble recovering

Hello, I was referred here from the text line. I'm 2 months out of an emotionally abusive relationship. I'm having a really hard time recovering from it. I was neglected, used, taken for granted, and if I ever brought up feeling of neglect, I was made to feel guilt and she would threaten to leave. I...
