i find myself always really connecting to someone and then out of the blue my feelings drop off the edge of a cliff. I hurt others because of this and when I come back around i hurt myself knowing that Im all alone without a person I cared about. a vicious relationship circle

I'm sorry you're feeling so alone. Sometimes instant connections are more about finding something we are lacking rather than true feelings. And sometimes it's hard to tell the difference. For instance, if you are lacking companionship, you might be easily be attracted to someone who fills that void for you. But then once you get past all that initial attraction, you may start to realize there's not really that much there.

I think it's important to spend time thinking about what voids you feel are in your life and then find ways to get those needs met outside of a relationship. Once you do that, you may find that you find relationships you really want rather than ones that simply fill an unmet need in your life.

I married a man that I didn't love - in fact, I don't think I even really liked him. But I was a single mom at the time and he met the need in my life for companionship and a male figure in my boys' lives. It was a huge mistake. If I had focused on finding other ways to get those needs met, perhaps I would have saved myself a world of heartache. Still, one thing that it did provide me was a lesson and experience in order to be able to help other people.
