Seven years ago, I thought I met the woman of my dreams, I was even ready to propose. She left me before I ever had the chance to without any explanation. Ever since, I have been unable to have a healthy and happy relationship. Will my faith in women ever be restored?
I am so sorry to hear of the hurt you experienced. Fortunately for you, your ex-girlfriend revealed her true colors before you committed to "death do us part." Have you taken the time to heal from the pain? I understand that seven years have passed but have you truly reflected on what happened and found closure? Once you do and only then, you can close that chapter in your life for good and begin writing the next.You are the author of your own destiny.
I understand restoring your faith in womankind is difficult but you must recognize that your ex-girlfriend does not represent all women. Don't perpetuate the cycle of mistrust with another woman. Lingering angst and resentment can poison your next relationship. Heal through love- by giving it and getting it. The American writer, Charles Bukowski once said "I've had so many knives stuck into me, when they hand me a flower, I can't quite make out what it is. It takes time." Indeed, it will take time to find and recognize a woman deserving of your trust. Elite Daily and Martha Beck have TRUST guidelines for you.
There are wonderful, thoughtful and kind single women that will make trusting them and loving them easy. You deserve and they deserve the healthy relationship I know you are looking for. Good luck!
