Dating after divorce rebound relationship
Cognitive behavioral therapy is one tool that worked for me and I try to use its tips and tricks every day.
I say it all the time now to anyone newly divorced and I say it even if they are not listening. Give yourself time to heal before you suck someone else into the personal torment that you are inevitably going to experience.
The real source of my anguish was my divorce, so either it would have been this one painful affair or a series of short meaningless flings, but the outcome would have been the same. After an agonizing eight-hour long anxiety attack and three days of very little sleep, I finally bottomed out, and then I got into therapy.
I briefly went on antidepressants and little by little, month by month, the horrible twisted vice of depression released its grip and I began to have my mind back.
I will never know his motivations but I can't blame him for walking away from an obvious train wreck.Of course not every divorced person goes through this, as some are happy to leave their spouse, and for them divorce is a new beginning.But if a person is emotionally crushed, they should avoid getting involved in a serious intimate relationship for a while.I tried to start another relationship only to have that blow up in my face almost the exact same way. Eventually I convinced myself that it didn't matter.I would never know that alternate reality and life doesn't work with a reset button.
