Rejection/Breakup


About 10 years ago I went through a breakup that hit me really hard. I couldn’t accept it or handle the emotional pain. I thought I was going to marry the woman. I kept wanting to think this couldn’t be real or happening to me. I became depressed and felt so rejected. I’ve dated a few times on and off but starting to realize how I’ve been letting the hurt and pain of this breakup affect me and not put myself out there or really be who I am in dating to protect myself. How can I heal from my past and move forward to date from my best self? Thanks in advance.
