Thanks everyone. I need this kick in the butt to remind myself of the facts. I get swept up in my feelings and the desire for that strong connection. But I know I walked away for a reason.April2023April 26, 2023 at 11:29 am #1119858

He’s blocked where I can block him right now so it helps but this recent contact was like him slithering back in to my mindApril2023April 26, 2023 at 12:08 pm #1119863
I have a therapist now but she’s got very bad availability. May change her out soon. :/
Again, exactly what @kate said. Time. Block. Don’t respond. Date. Rinse. Repeat.
I dated a master manipulator another lifetime ago. We ended it. But I didn’t block him from everything. I still wanted to think the best of him and/or didn’t want to be “mean”, I dunno. Occasionally he’d reach out and I’d spiral for a few days. The first couple of years, I’d respond and then feel like shit after. Finally, I cut it off and I felt so, so free. Don’t do what I did. You’ll be happier. I promise.April2023April 26, 2023 at 3:46 pm #1119866
Thank you everyone. Just waiting for my heart to catch up with my brain 🙂
