As some of you know Ive had a bit of a shock to my system in the last week and Ive really been thinking about my reaction and personality. I dont cope well with loss AT ALL. WHo does, you may say? Nobody but I am starting to really worry that I dont seem to be able to carry on rships once they get even the slightest dint in them. Im not one for remaining friends with exes, i never have been able to distance my feelings even after theyve finally disappeared. I guess I will always hold on to things. So my question...is this normal or should I seriously seek counselling? Do other people hold on to things so tightly? I had my heart broken the worst it ever has been well over a year ago and I still am not over that and I often wonder if I ever will be. Its happened again in the last week, nowhere near as bad, but I still am not coping well at all. I know this is an extremely personal topic but I feel comfortable enough to talk to you guys about this here. I just am tired of losing friends and loved ones because I have to break all ties whenever my heart is hurt. Please tell me Im not the only one that does this? I seriously need advice and Im thinking of swearing off love, sex and romance until I can figure it out, which may be some time.
