    I know it's hard, and I understand your stress and confusion. The first step to healing is realizing that you made the right decision. You are the better person and you deserve a healthy and loving partner.

      well this isn't the first time we ended up ending, and it felt do awkward those other times, but this time I feel...happy. And free. But I can see how they are when I'm around...they look so sad...and I can't help but feel it's my fault, even though I never plan on going back

        I'm so happy you feel free, but please remember that their feelings are not your responsibility. You realized they were toxic and you let them go because you deserve better. I know seeing them sad is hard but please don't sacrifice your happiness for someone else's :)

    Keep reminding yourself of things in the present that you have control over or are grateful for! Maybe both. Grounding techniques work. Especially the simple act of breathing 💕 3–3-3 is a good one. 3 seconds inhaling, hold for 3, then exhale for 3 :)

    Its so much harder then it should be...because one of the things that triggered the argument was when she told me I was one of the reasons she wanted to kill herself. And that killed me inside

    It's difficult but I've learned to just take my time when it comes to stuff like this
