So you have tried everything to keep the relationship going, but unfortunately it has been crumbling for a while. You just didn’t want to acknowledge that your partner slowly has been slipping away from you.
You go out of your way to make him happy; try sexy lingerie; cook his favourite meal...just about do anything for him but nothing in return.
It is about this stage you start to feel not noticed an unloved, yet all you want to hear from him to are those magical words “I Love You.”
You don’t get them, and even if he said those words to you; you knew he was acting - just trying not to hurt you. So now your in a situation where you feel like maybe he is taking pity on you. It is not a good feeling. .
This is where it is time to face this challenge front on. Don’t start feeling sorry for your self or even take pity on yourself. No you have to be proud, strong, powerful and yet try to show you have tactfulness and maturity as well.
When or if you ever come to this stage in your life, try to remain calm and dignified. Accept the situation for what It is. Never ask too many questions as to why the break up. You may never know. Just quietly move on.
Don’t bother even trying to work it out. The too hard basket sometimes. If a relationship starts to get to hard, and you're struggling to be happy in it; look for an answer. Look within the relationship. It will be right in front of you. Best to shut down your pain by keeping busy with friends and family, or using any distractions in your life.
Keep that chin up and have fun. Go out and explore new opportunities. You could write out your bucket list, and do the first four in six months.
You could become a volunteer at some charities. You will meet nice people doing that.
Do not bury your head under the covers and become like a hermit. That does nothing for you.
