I share a different story each month (I change the name and situation slightly). I also share my advice to that particular woman. The common thread running though all the stories indicates that us women have tied our self-confidence to the men we're with. This of course, means that when they walk out we feel not only a sense of loss, but a total destruction to our own self-worth. Sometimes this phenomenon can have lasting effects, unfortunately.
It's totally natural to feel beaten down when a relationship falls apart. After all, events like these make us question ourselves. However, one thing we always have to keep in mind is, there doesn't have to be anything wrong with us for someone to want to leave. Here's 'Nancy's' question:
How do you get over someone when it was so perfect and you lived everyday knowing he loved you? And then it ended suddenly with so many questions. I need answers but I can’t see him or talk to him because my heart breaks even more, I cry often and have almost lost my will to live because I know I’m doing so without him. I’m so broken I don’t know how or if I can ever be repaired. I was so happy and now I feel like I can never regain that happiness I lived every day.
