Slimone,

Thank you for your kind response. The dreams / nightmares do make it hard to face the day sometimes. However, I believe they will get better over time. I think the more I learn to process these emotions during the day, the less they will show up at night (hopefully).

I’ve been seeing a therapist, and it made me realize how much I’ve neglected my own wants and needs over the past few years. I’m trying to let go of those feelings of guilt for letting the relationship go on so long, and for letting her take so much from me. For letting her turn me into someone I’m not. I’m doing my best to put myself first and claim my time back. I’m trying to learn that self care is not selfish, it’s necessary. Thank you <3
