I feel like I have just stepped off of a ledge and I am waiting to hit the ground. How long will I feel so afraid of what comes next?

Everyone who is different and there is no specific time. I think not having contact with the person you are trying to get over speeds up the process. Unfortunately, there are stages just like the grieving process that you will ahve to go through. But it does end.

What´s in it for us grieving over our loss?

Thats the question I often ask myself when I ponder why I havent been ready for a relationship for the past 8 to 9 years. In my case the fear is there, too, and the comfort of familiarity, such as the weight of the armor I carry around, is a safe known quantity.

Add depression to that and what a never ready setting for new romance!

In your case, what are you afraid of? I know the getting hurt part but just how? Betrayal, abuse, ignorance, abandonment, control?..

Some shrinks say there is no needy person for love. To me it gets too philosophical. Then others say you have to be whole to find your other half. Uh? Yes, I agree, if we have a balanced life, safety, family, friends, church, exercise, nutrition, etc then we can give as well as receive.

Can you think where your life could be more balanced? There might be a start to a full life which in turn would attract people who also have a full life and would want you for you!
