So I’ve been thinking a lot about this. Everything I read


So I’ve been thinking a lot about this. Everything I read talks about how you have to heal on your own from affair/divorce/narcissist before you get into another relationship. But sometimes I feel like I can’t close the book on the past/ turn the page until I find a special person.
I’m curious how others feel about this? I’m a little over 3 years post divorce and thinking of trying to date again. Thank you

@Torch1976 Thank you, I hope that looking at things from a different perspective helps. I know it has proven helpful and insightful for me. Good luck.

Difficult situation. I actually found someone way before I was ready and it's a struggle now. She's super sweet and great and I'm all damaged. I want to be healed. So tired of not sleeping and hurting.

@Trex1973 There are some great videos and other resources on the affair recovery website that might help you work through some of the trauma. My therapist also recommended the books by Dr. Sue Johnson which may be helpful for growing your new relationship. Great advice for building healthier communication patterns and for dealing with various relationship challenges.
