Then, all of a sudden, her words manifested into an abrupt reality as I read: It occurred to me then, in the trenches of my blankets, enveloped by Netflix and surrounded by bunched clouds of Kleenex, that this was love. If you're still reaching out, talking to them, or even thinking about it to any significant degree, there's more love there than you're letting on. The things we believe when we are young are powerful. There would have been a time for all of us that regardless of how mind-blowingly destructive the messages from our family were, we would have received them all with a beautiful, wide-eyed innocence, grabbing every detail and letting them shape who we were growing up to be. You take them out, and you try and talk, and it seems good, but it's never really felt from the other person. The truth is that we live in a fallen world and tragically the death of loved ones is part of it. There is no such thing as a perfect relationship, but a healthy one is a tolerant, loving, accepting, responsive one.
In your quiet moments, what do you think about? I feel completely and totally engulfed and cannot figure out how I can possibly comfort him, when I can barely deal with myself.

We have a beautiful 3 yr old and whom I would do anything to protect. It's easy to assume that once they've finally healed from the breakup, they'll look to you as the valiant goddess who swept into their life at just the right time to make it all better, but odds are they'll just sort of forget you exist. Tell her to come back to you if she decides she loves you after all. One of my favourite things about being comfortable in a relationship is being able to do our own things when we're out with a group. If this bae was dumped out of the blue and left reeling, chances are higher that they haven't had enough time to heal before committing to someone new. Your world has just gotten turned upside down. You can probably say with some credibility that I never loved my spouse.
You have to restrain yourself from talking about him with your friends all the time. His version of respect is me agreeing with whatever he says.

I knew he would always be there for me, and vice versa.
Or they're just plain fixated on the ex in general. Suppose you and your friends are at an eatery. Think about the last time this person was sick. Fluffing his pillow or spending hours in the kitchen fixing his favorite meal won't cure his woes.

He left my house now and then she even told me that me must not come back.
Additionally, even if your spouse says they never loved you, then what. Nothing temporarily numbs the sting of a breakup quite like a rebound relationship. In fact, I'm going to say something to you now, which I really want you to think about and remember very carefully. She slowly started talking to me less and less. If you put your personal goals on the backburner too long, your dreams will simmer away. If you are anything like a large number of women, your guy is the center of your universe. It's not your choice which ones are which.
In my attempt to make sense of both life and my feelings about all of it, I turned to research. I love you, but I don't like you right now, is something you're almost ready to say. The difference is that healthy families and relationships will work through the tough stuff. Good luck to both of us and to anybody going through a hard time.

It requires much from the lover even when the giving is pure joy. Upon reflection, I think you're completely right Rose, writing how you really feel is probably one of the best things one can do.
