This is how I'm feeling right now as well. Thats 3 of us on this thread. We are not alone. YOu wouldn't be feeling this way if you were in another relationship.

Your brain is playing some kind of cruel trick. Definitely don't fall for it. Remember that there are plenty of others out there and trust that you have the chance for a much better relationship. Try to put your focus on the relationship you want instead of the relationship you had. That is what I had to do to get over someone toxic that I cared for.

I will tell you, that part is hard because your brain is going to go back to it. One thing I noticed is when I focused on the type of relationship I wanted, my mind focused less on the toxic person and I started feeling better. Then I focused more.

This is one thing that worked for me.

Do everything you can to move on in a healthy way. Right now, you're just going through a certain stage of grief in the break up that's all that is. Given time, you will adjust.

Meet someone else, that will remove her from your mind.

I've been hitting Tinder and Bumble to find someone else. Those apps are hard work though!

No body wish to be in a toxic relationship, i know a guy that almost lost his life from such, you are lucky you ended it, but thinking of going back again, please stay away, what you need now is a caring and loving partner... and with your due search, you would definitely see someone that would love and care for you...

Make that 4. I'm going through the same thing right now too. Trying to get out and meet someone else sucks. We'll all figure it out eventually though. You're right where you're supposed to be. Keep moving forward.
