very encouraging words Red and you're right, I can only imagine that some people in this world have it way worse, things happen in life that are very painful and I need to remember that I should certainly be thankful for the things I do have and try to move on. time definitely does heal and I really appreciate your input and words of wisdomAlong the road of life we will inevitably encounter painful events, this is something we all have in common and we can take solace in knowing that we are not alone in this, I won't carry on about all of my pain but know I have had my share and then some. Something I have been reminded of when sad is that things could be worse and one day likely will be, so be happy for what you have and try to make the most of it, remember that time heals and there are brighter days still ahead as you hang in there and grow strong again.
amen Paul, that was definitely my problem, I held a deep grudge against my ex, and for what? all that is gonna do is make me miserable. I shouldn't let her ruin my life anymore than she already has, I need to forget her as fast as possible because all that will do is make life better for me. After all, I haven't touched laser since the break up. I shouldn't do that. like you all said, don't live in the past, live for the future. I thank you all for helping me in my time of need, it truly appreciate it.I am sorry for your loss and the pain you have felt over this relationship, Richie. It is true that the pain we feel is always somehow connected to what our expectations were and once you have no expectations, you will get over it. I have been married three times and the loss of the first one hurt the worst at that time. But, we often attribute better than human qualities to the people we choose to love. I get more happiness out of my relationship with my daughter because it is a totally unconditional love and never depends on what she does or doesn't do to or for me. Women are no better than men when it comes to being faithful or bothering to work on a relationship, though some of us tend to think of them as being above all that. I'm glad you are on the mend. Sounds like you still have most of your life ahead of you, so take comfort in that thought and try to live in the present. Too many people tend to live in the past or for the future when life is happening now. Good luck to you, Richie.
