My guy is in a happy marriage — they travel, they go on work trips together. He never utters a bad word about his wife or marriage. There have never been any illusions to us being more than an affair couple. But, all of that I will gladly trade to have him out of my life and this chapter closed. My only challenge is that we do work in the same space, but if I try, I can avoid him moving forward. Hopefully, the affair fog will wear off soon. How long does it take to process this loss? Dear Finally Over, Thank you for your sharing and congratulations for taking action toward what you want.
This man may have hurt you tremendously but you also learned so much from this relationship: — you became alive sexually — you had great communication — you supported each other and created more success from being with each other.
Today you learn: — to create boundaries — to stand up for what you want — to put yourself first. You are not a victim. You are a woman you had to leaned those lessons and you learned them a very hard way. You will bounce back. You will move forward. Feel free to contact me directly in you want to talk.
With kindness, Dr.
Hi Finally Over it. This could have very well been written by me. I currently just ended mine about a week ago, and am wondering how have you been coping? Has he tried reaching out since then. I too work with my ex affair partner and will have to be strong in my convictions to let him go. Your story is literally describing each pain I am going through.
At this moment, I resent myself and wish I was never born to experience this. At the same time I also do resent him for saying he knows how I feel. Hi Jessie, You were two to create this fxxx up situation. I understand the guilt and the blame and at the same time, there is nothing wrong with you. Btw, he is the one cheating. Time for you to decide what you want. No judgment. What do you want for yourself?
You can do it!!! If your choice is to stay. If your choice is to go. You are strong and as painful as it feels like now, you will survive. Contact me if you want to talk. I so desperately needed this. If possible I would love to be able to email you with a few questions. I completely understand if you are busy with all the responses. I too was vulnerable after leaving my emotionally abusive husband. It was only a year later that I met MM.
I am completely infatuated with him our time together is absolutely perfect. I just ended a year long affair with a married man, the pain is debilitating.
... and 2 ways to overcome it and succeed.
We never went out, never did anything together all we did was have lunch once and coffee once in a year. We had a very powerful connection and we made each other feel alive. Like most of you said, the time we had together was amazing but we were apart most of the time and it was awful. I tried to be strong and be ok with it, there was even times he suggested just being friends? But I would still be his secret.

I don't know what to do anymore, and I know if i'll keep being like this I'll end up failing school for real!!!! A key to recovering from fear of failure is being able to separate feelings about a failed action from feelings about yourself as a whole.
That does not make one person less capable , intelligent, or skilled than another; but they may be at a different place on the learning spectrum. We tend to only look at the snap shot of the moment, rather than seeing the trend of growth over time. A lot of fast rising stars crumble, whereas sometimes the diligent learner who persists ends up with more stable and long term success. I've read this and Haven't you had this feeling once: "I must do it perfectly or I will fail! Yes, success makes you psychologically addicted to it. It's impossible to cure.
And the thought "what will Mrs. Grundy say? The fear of being mocked. The wish to be someone that people like makes you to go practically insane and failophobic.
My question: but what if I can't follow the tips, despite the fact that I'm thinking about it as hard as I can? Plus, I can't cope with failing. Everything just keeps staying inside and keeps reminding of itself. The heartache of losing, letting an opportunity slip. It's like a mountain on my shoulders. Shake it off? That won't make any difference, because that's in the past, time machines are not invented yet.
That already happened! Do something that you're good at? Same answer and reason.

This reason has made me to remember failures. I'm really prone of them too. Everything I do is a failure. Find a dark corner and cry? That won't help. Only cure that I can think of is a hard hit to the head and amnesia.

Hello, For the most part of my life I have been suffering from anxiety and not knowing it, I have always been making decisions in all areas of my life that were not necessary beneficial to me but were mostly the result of self sabotage, it is very painful afterwards as I tend to see myself as a personal failure and feel that I am doomed to to get anywhere near I want to be.
