A dead relationship I tried to leave

by Jade
(America )

Well, I have been with the same guy for 8 1/2 years and it's going no where. Every day we do the same things and every weekend he goes to his brothers and leaves me alone.

We love each other dearly but it's ended. The grief is deafening and the end is hard to admit. I'm 30 now and know that I need to move on but I don't know how.

At Christmas he made me have an abortion. It ripped my heart out. The sad thing is that it was the first time we had had sex in a year.

I may not have left him but the fear of leaving is so horrible. Emotionally battered I don't see clearly.

If only I could be as brave as some of the others here.

Make a decision out of love and not fear
by: Anonymous

I am in the same boat. I've been with my bf for 7 years and will be 30 next year. I love him and care about him but I am not sure I am in love with him. In our 7 years together, he has changed me and my life has changed me and I am not the same person I was when he met me.

The decision to leave has to come out of love and not fear. To leave him and let him, as well as myself, move on would be out of love. To stay with him because I am afraid to be alone, well, clearly that is fear and it is only hurting us both.

I know I need to listen to my own advice but please try to make a decision out of love and not out of fear. In the end, if a decision is made out of love, it is guaranteed to be alright. Good luck!

Ruin is a Gift
by: Denise

It IS the road to transformation. Rent the movie 'Eat, Pray, Love'. Pay particular attention to how she ends her relationship with her boyfriend when she is in Rome. Listen to his proposal, and understand why she cannot accept it. Why no one should.

Then study everything she learns in India.

The pain won't last forever.

Nothing does.

Move on. Live your life. Jesus is there for you.
