A romantic relationship just ended – the first I’ve had In years…and I didn’t realize how attached I’d become to this person, how much I liked feeling desired. I’m heartbroken, even though u I know it probably wouldn’t work out long term, it’s hard to be cut off from connection – it feels like he doesn’t care – he takes forever to respond to my texts and comes across as indifferent towards me, where once he was so passionate. I keep trying to provoke him into engaging with me, and the more he withdraws, the more desperate I feel. I don’t know how to sit with this feeling of rejection and abandonment- it doesn’t feel like a sentence in my head, it feels like my heart hurts and I have to see him. How can I get a grip???
