I am divorced. I was married 18 years when I found out he was cheating on me. I went through all of the stages and healed myself. Along the way, I became fiercely independent and now I'm finding it very difficult to give 100% of myself to the current relationship I'm in. I had always felt that my ex was my one and only and that I would never love anyone else. I think to myself sometimes....maybe that's true, maybe I'm meant to just be alone now. I'm not saying this because Im sad, I'm truly trying to figure it out. Anyone else feel the same?

So maybe this relationship isn't someone you want to give 100 percent to, that is okay as long as they are okay with it. Just be on the same page.

I don't think that it's not wanting to give, I think I'm still very scared to give 100% to anyone. Maybe it will take time. Just feeling sort of lost lately.

@wantstobefree Sometimes I think we have been through so much that we have forgotten how to trust, We may need to re-learn how to behave in a healthy relationship. It is a shame that our ex is the one whose behavior hurts us the most and we must do the work to heal.
