The last few months were rough because his grandmother passed away after being in the hospital for a few months.
I tried to be there for him but he totally withdrew and would reject my advances and we started fighting a lot because of it.
You should be happy recognizing that you’re single because it means you can have limitless options.
It means that you are not imprisoned in a reality where you can’t be happy unless you get a very, specific outcome with one particular person.
I asked if there was a chance for us once he got things sorted and he said he isn’t sure if he sees a future. I remember, years ago, when I was extremely unhappy with my job and a few other areas of my life.
Men are attracted to women who have the vibe of being OK (not anxious, worried, hostile, upset, etc.).
He told me he loves me, but felt like I was smothering him and he needed to find himself.
I told him I would give him space while he figured things out but he said he couldn’t ask me to do that.
It’s believing that you could “lose something” or that something could happen that would create a “lack of something” in your life.
At the heart of it, it’s the feeling of fear of loss.
