well…just when i thought relationship things couldn’t get any more sad they are.
i’ve been broken up with the SO for a couple months now in practice, but not officially until last week. nOw I just finished the 4 hour “what do we do about the house, possessions, cars, cats, etc” talk and joint crying and screaming. Needless to say, things are not happy.
Then it gets worse. It becomes a screaming, crying thing of how I ruined her entire life, and she wishes every day that she was dead. Well, join the club. And about how she thinks she may not live without me, and at best she will die alone, and will never allow herself to ever love or trust anyone again after I betrayed her and riuned her. And how I did all this to her out of spite and malice
And I do feel now that I am the one that did this to her - I am the one that loved her, then abandoned her. Yes, she has been horribly clinically depressed for 6.5 years, but I took on a responsibility, and I let her down. But I coulnd’t live in a relationship with no real love anymore. Maybe I’m not thinking straight right now. But I feel so terrible that I made another person feel this way - especially one that I once loved and laughed with. What do I do for an encore? Destroy another life, make someone else feel bad?
She wants to move out asap. OK, but I’ve tried to get her to take her time, she refuses. I offered her money - serious 5-figureamounts of money, not a loan, she refuses. She wants to take two of the cats, and she says I will never be allowed to see them again - one cat I ahve had for 6 years and is my special little kitty- how can I never see him again? I feel like I will be losing a child. How silly this must seem to those of you without cats…why is this the hardest part?
I guess Im not explaining this well. I’m very tired and upset and full of hate for myself for cuasing this much pain to another. To think that I did this to her. Yes, I was treated badly, but I was not the sick one. I want to, no must move on, and pursue a relationship with another who I love and who loves me, but how can I lve with myself when it seems that I have really destroyed her life? How did this happen? i canot believe how mean of a person I must be. Why should I go on?
