Get over... her

This is something I've been thinking a lot about recently. I started going out with my first gf when I was just 17. She introduced me to so many things and we were happy together for nearly 5 years. I loved her more than anyone and there was a time that I would have done anything for her. Unfortunately, these things don't last forever and we decided to go our separate ways due to our careers taking us in opposite directions. She's still my best friend and she always will be but we've both moved on. She's with a really nice boy now and I have my own gf. But getting over her was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. There was a time when I thought I would be alone forever. With the help of family and friends, I moved on. I'll never be fully over her and I'll always love her but at least I'm happy now with how things have turned out. And if we were meant to be together, then maybe down the line our paths will cross again.

It may never be the right time and that is the hardest part of a situation like that.

It's going to be very difficult. Take my word for it: focusing on the here and now and the opportunities in front of you is the wisest and surest path to a fulfilling future.

Sigh...I can relate far too well. On July 21st, my ex-fiancee--who I MET on the Org in 1998--is getting married. We've been broken up for years but you only really love someone without fear ONCE in your life. She was that first love. The one I loved fearlessly. We both moved on. I had a kid with someone. But...I still carry a torch for her and it's so stupid. She's getting married to a very nice man and I should just wish her well.

But my gosh, I miss her...

Drop that last part about holding out hope of paths crossing again. True, it may happen. But for your own sanity, stop keeping that locked away in a little box in your mind. It is holding you back whether you know it or not.

It is easier to move on fully when you

1- stop thinking of the ex as a possession "my girl", "my 1st love", etc.

2- focus on your present love interest and get busy making tons of great memories with her

I am sure you are doing these things.... no judgement, just tossing in my twocents

Since I didn't see anybody else say it I will. You need to cut the cord. You can't move on if she's still your best friend. It's a hard thing to do but in the long run you'll be glad you did.

I feel oddly good about the fact that the Org is popular enough somewhere to attract a spambot.
