Feeling Lost: How To Start Over When Things Fall Apart
In order to restore that meaning through reconnecting with people, however, you need to make it about more than just you and your past failed relationship. Yes, you need time to vent and to figure things out, and having someone there for that is helpful. Another way to separate yourself from your past relationship and move on is to take an objective look at what the relationship was really like. We should be together forever! First, we tend to see the past through rose-colored glasses. What happened? The truth is, our memories are pretty shitty , and we often only remember the things that fit into whatever story we want to believe right now.
Toxic relationships only ever survive on drama, and as the drama ramps up to keep the relationship going, you become dependent on that drama , or even addicted to it. You start thinking that irrational jealousy or controlling behavior or dickish and snide comments were somehow actually signs of their undying love for you. There seems to be some debate out there about whether or not you should take some time to yourself and just be alone for a while. I think you should, and doubly so if your failed relationship was a toxic one.
Rushing out to find someone to fill that void without really figuring out what you want and what you need see below is a recipe for recurring relationship disaster.
So one of the best things you can do is figure out who you are, what you need, and how to get those needs met. And to truly know that, you have to figure it out on your own. I know my situation is unique, but I just wanted to share that I survived. You should be incredibly proud of standing up for your soul the way you have. Keep going, keep healing and claim your rewards.. Hi Leila, Your courage is truly inspirational. Reading what you have been through to get to where you are is deeply moving.

My experiences were similar to yours, losing everything and worst of all having my cherished pets threatened as you did. Yay for Melanie, yay for Super Soul Sundays, yay for Pema Chondron, Gina Lake, Eckhardt Tolle and above all our beautiful pets; all Angels who guided me through the worst and continue to show me how to live in acceptance and peace. Leila may all your dreams come true, may all blessings of health and joy be with you and thank you from my heart to yours for sharing how you have realigned with your own truth… Bless you; love and hugs ; to you, also to Joanne, and everyone here.
So beautiful, thank you Tee Bee for your blessing. They seem so happy and back to themselves again. I have horses too that I relocated and they seem to be much more relaxed and colorful than before. I really think the animals take on a lot of our stuff when we are in the middle of craziness and despair. They helped pull me out. I had them before the relationship and I could see the change in their beings too. May sound weird, but I really, really could see it. Now, of course all are well. Hi Leila, Absolutely agree that our animals respond always to energy and so take on so much of the chaos and pain of these situations.

My dogs and ponies all showed disturbances and anxiety of different kinds and it is my deepest regret to have subjected them to this. They truly are angels who accompany us in life and share with us a deep and boundless bond if we are open to them. Mine are also very much spirit guides and teachers- they teach me so much about being present in the moment, being joyful; acceptance and peacefulness etc… All the things that many of our human species have to work so hard on, read books about, practice etc etc… Both my ponies and my dogs daily move into a zen like state for short periods, tuned into another world, so deeply at peace and at one with themselves it seems… Sometimes when I sit and talk with them they drift into this state and it is pure bliss to share such deep peace with them… Hope you know what I mean??
So wonderful to hear your animal companions are returned to their full joy — may your time together on Planet Earth be long and filled with tenderness and joy and good health for all of you. I have been priveleged to have always had dogs as playmates and cherished companions but am newly discovering how to communicate with ponies and horses! Are you familiar with the Animal Spirit Cafe website? I love it; lots of interesting reading and inter species communication info there.
Lovely to hear from you, stay well and shining brightly for us all; much love to you and each one of your animal family. Now time to watch Alice in Wonderland; hope the dogs like it!! I really love what was said about our pets. I have quite a few, and they too were threatened. I am in the process of extracting a narcissist from my life. I now have a bearded dragon.. So sorry it took me this long to get back to the blog. I agree with everything. In fact, I was with my mare the other day and I was having anxiety all day.
I put my head down on her back and draped my body over here. We both went into a meditative state and I felt whole and complete when I left the barn.
And all of her books. That is so cool. Yes, I feel guilty to that I subjected my animals to so much negative energy. They were almost comatose the whole time, the horses, the dogs, and the other farm animals when I was living with the ex. I have to tell you the animals totally acted out at his place between comatose states. Now, they are perfect angels except for normal brattiness: You are so right that they are our spirit guides.
Thank you so much for your replies!!! By the way, I definitely think a real lizard is better! Like everyone else, I am so grateful to have found this site. I feel a bit silly when I read some of these posts as the stories are hard to read. I had known him for 5 years through work, he always seemed like a nice affable guy.
Was in a long-term committed relationship. He was always very funny and charismatic. He came after me when they had broken up.
Turns out they break up constantly. Usually when he wants to cat around.
Sound familiar? What he has put her through, not accepting her children, constant infidelity, defiling, bruises, humiliation…Good Lord. I So wish I could send her a link here. So, I know all of this about his last relationship. He slapped me hard during an intimate moment early on in our union. He was blacked out of course and an eloquent letter of apology followed. Twice after that he hurled unkind woman bashing words at me out of the blue. We were laughing just before that. Even went to therapy.
I see now the stones were being laid. And I basically carried them for him. After false promises, a string of other girls, being constantly stood up, having ridiculous circular fights till 5am, I woke up Sunday knowing I would lose everything if I stayed in it. I called my girlfriends, my shrink and begged for help. In doing so I accidentally hit call instead of delete and I know my name came up on his phone. I started panicking and then read this blog. Needed to hear every word. BTW, my hands were shaking deleting him. My hands were trembling cutting off contact with him.
Thank you all for sharing your stories. My heart is with you. And thank you Melanie for shining a light….
