Personally I need time to heal. It wouldn't be fair to anyone I get involved with, post breakup, to suddenly get involved. I am selfish and aware enough to know it wouldn't be healthy. I lean on friends and work through my mourning, or try to. And hopefully come out the other side stronger and wiser.
Each of you may have different healing paths.. for the record. My wife and I are TOTALLY different in this regards.
I agree with needing time to heal, we knew we would need this, but weve been wandering around mostly lost.
I can feel it getting better all the time, but its still what I want.
My main concern is that...Good stuff like that does not happen to me, I feel like I cheated the universe & slipped by unnoticed this one time, I don't know if i'll be able to do that again.
I guess it's a common fear, but that does not make me feel any better about it.
