Hello Lynn, I read some fragments of your postings...I think it is hard when we need to let go of something or specially someone that we love...sometimes our minds give themselves the very noble goal of loving somebody...I think that is great if we can manage to put ourselves into the equation so it to be: 'I love you but I love myself also..." . Not easy when that person decides they are not going to be around. I do not know if perhaps we end up feeling worse in the hope that rumours reach the other end and they feel compassionate and perhaps ask: 'hey what happened to you?'...I was dealing with unrequited love myself (guy+guy link in my case) and I know my blood pressure raised up a lot when I had to confront the evidence the guy I liked wasn't so much into me...I got it to normal levels in the end so far...Hopefully with support and 'distraction' these things which are important but equally outside of our control gradually they loose the intensity in which we feel them...We love and we ache in the process of loving, Isn't that something? Good thoughts for the future is what I can say for now...Take good care everybody...!
