I have been divorced now for about a year. My husband and I dated & lived together for 9 years including the year that we were actually married. I have a boyfriend now, and I do love him, we have many things in common, have lots of fun together, many mutual friends, great parents & he demonstrates many qualities that I felt as though my ex was lacking. However, there are certain things that I said/did with my ex that when I think of them, I feel so sad about, I get the most horrible empty feeling in my heart. Ex) we always watched Elf & put our tree up at Christmas together. we had a dog, and he was Dad & I was Mom. He called me Master Chef, b/c that was one of my favorite shows, the way we laid beside each other in bed can never feel the same with anyone else, his hugs, I'll find a note that he had written & I can't help but cry. Have I just moved on too fast or did I make a mistake. We were 20 when we got together & 29 when we divorced, so I really feel that we grew up together, sharing so many life experiences. I find myself comparing the two, mentally of course. Any thoughts on how I'm feeling?
