    Feeling sense of loss

    I feel this overderwhelming sense of loss. It's been 15 years since my divorce. I feel like a part of me is misissing. Today I realized that no matter how much time has passed I still mourn the idea of having someone by my side. My heart aches for broken promises. I have let myself go physically. Im overweight and I know I have to work on myself. I just procratinate so much. I feel like I can't do it so why try. What's the point.

    RE: Feeling sense of loss

    I am sorry for the grief you are and have been experiencing.

    Have you ever thought about seeing a therapist who could help you with the grief and to be able to let go and move on with your life? From what have have written, it sounds like your life stopped when you got divorced 15 years ago, and haven't got it back since.

    I believe that your life could be so much more, but you need some help to get there. Grief and loss are very difficult things to go through and heal; but believe me, it's possible! You have been suffering with this for 15 years, and that's a long time for you to focus on loss without healing, but only getting worse, and that's what you need help with. You can see a therapist who is experienced in working with grief and loss. You've had 15 years of feeding yourself with self-defeating and destructing thoughts that only make you feel worse. Don't you think it's time to get your life back and get it back even better?

    The combo of a good, trained therapist that you like and connect with, and you putting in the work needed, can produce in you the healing you need, and acquire new skills that will help you as you live the rest of your life a more healthy person!

    It's time to take care of you!
