You’re not alone, I PROMISE!
There is no other way to say this: what you are going through feels like crap. The pain of loss feels real and is a ‘thing’—and if someone tells you to ‘move on’, you have every right to want to punch them in the face! That split second after you have woken up when suddenly you feel that pang of angst, wishing that it was all a dream. From eating nothing to binging on junk food (I was partial to those more-chocolate-than-biscuit biscuits!), you just want nothing but to speak to your ex.Suddenly, what felt like the norm has been ripped away from you.Not having the person you felt closest to anywhere in sight defies gravity. I remember when my ex left me. I broke down when I had to take the bins out the first time! It was horrific! Or when my friend had to remove the scissors from my hand whilst I was chopping pictures from frames on the wall andsobbing my heart out.
