    This breaks my heart. Happiness can be found in solitude. Much preferable to a relationship like that!

    Taking control and not letting others command and demand. That’s the way to go.

    Great shape 55! Is that a champagne bottle or a candelabra with a lit candle? Nice take charge/independent tone to this.

    Beautifully written! It’s in taking responsibility in my own place in the world (and in all my strange and tangled relationships) that I become whole. Amazing stuff, this self-reliance!

    Have a beautiful Sunday!!

      Thank you Rachel! You read it quite close.. Indeed, that’s what I meant- instead of yearning or breaking away! Why would I do that? That would mean I had given him the liberty to take over me..
      Wishing you a nice Sunday too.. weekend hugs xxx

    I’m told, that when we stop looking for love… it find us. Try to relax about it all and focus on your other things that bring you joy and … what will be, will be. Que sera, sera.

    You know I’ve been here this past 3 years. Fell for someone who played with me, loved me deeply but, when push came to shove, chose someone else.
    You are more worthy than giving all of your power and positive energy into someone who doesn’t return it ten-fold. When you dwell in the past of what-might-have-been, you stop looking at the present and future of what might be if you allow your thoughts to let it happen. I read somewhere over and over until the words hit home: ‘Never make anyone a priority in your life if they’re only prepared to have you as a ‘option’ in theirs. It’s so true.
    why spend our lives yearning for someone who just doesn’t want us, when we are wasting such precious time we could spend on those things that bring us joy, not memories of pain and unhappiness.
    I had to learn that sometimes, thiings are just not meant to be. If this was a meant to be relationship then, it would have been.
    Try, if you can to ease up a little on the past and live in the moment of today. Today is your life, make it count for something more than a yearning for someone who was not the right one for you.
    Hope that helps you a bit and some …. ((( Hugs)))

      I understand every word that you have written here. May I thank you for being so wishful n kind?
      I definitely don’t yearn for him or anyone else for that matter. What I am raging about is about my state of being. It’s not love. It’s about my own matter of survival. I don’t have any room for love. priorities sit there tight. Anyone who will take care of those would get a place in my life else not.

      Hugs right back at you Dear one.. xoxox

      Infact, I am sorry that he failed.. this means I’ll have to start it all over! If that had worked out; it would have been end of my struggle. It’s already been over 17 years that I am trying to survive..
      I am not being strong anymore.. age is catching up on me.. I am too heart broken to try anymore time..

      Thank you for your wishes.. I could use a little cushion!!
