Learning to care for yourself is isolating

Oct 03, 2016 4:31 PM

So you all know what's been happening and I've been a ball of emotional foolishness. Even before this week's activity. If u read my other post you'll know . He's already started calling and sound pittyfull and assholeish .
But mostly what's got me here is the fact that I'm learning what I need to care for me and most times those around me don't like or understand it. I've stopped making excuses Ives stopped explaining and that's gotten me in loads of trouble. But at the end of the day it was for me
Has anyone else found thst being true to themselves has made you more isolated and if so how do you reconcile those emotions along with all the other emotional stuff we deal with.

Hey New, I sent you a message on the Fitness app. I hope you got it! It's not easy teaching someone else how to treat you, especially when you are still learning how you want to be treated. I'm not going to lie to you and say it will be easy, because it won't be. However, you have all of us to help you be strong. Hang in there girl!

So thankful to have all you guys. Yes scaryann I did get it. I thought I replied but my mind has been scattered all over. I feel as if it's starting to hit me now slowly. I've still not gotten over upset or down right mad. I feel I should be . But in stead i just feel a bit numb with a heaviness on my chest. I honestly don't think I've ever been truely heartbroken to this point.
