I am sharing this reply to a PM from a poster on this board, you will get the gist of it by reading.

We only miss what could have been. I know I don't miss what it really was.

Sometimes you just have to die a little inside in order to be reborn and rise again as a stronger and wiser version of you!

Letting go is tough.

RBM, thanks for this thread. I have read it many times in the last few days. I feel as if I have to keep revisiting my ending over and over. My mind keeps wanting to see if there was some other way it could have gone. There wasn't. There wasn't. There wasn't. It still hurts a lot. What I wish for now is to be able to give myself some credit for leaving the A and being NC for more than 4 months and living with some credibility, honesty, integrity. I suspect I won't get that until I have really and truly "let go." Hasn't happened yet. Meanwhile, I read your posts. Thanks again.

Thanks for the kind words.

I sometimes feel that I am preaching too much.

Hi Rather. I've been meaning to tell you that you have been knocking it out of the park recently with your posts here and on AYA. Thank you for your insight which is surely helpful to so many.
