Serious emotional triggers happening right now

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

The man I have been seeing revealed some information to me last night that has brought me to the decision that I cannot see a relationship happening. He's bipolar, has PTSD and HSV. He also shared with me the story of his wife's very gory, traumatic suicide.

He's a very nice guy, but, with all he has going on, I can't. I am 100% relationship ready and I feel its ok to expect the same from a potential partner. He's not there yet.

This being said, I am really sad and emotionally drained and disappointed and feeling like I am going to on an eating binge. I recognize my triggers and this is a big one.

    I think we can all relate to emotional triggers. I'm sorry the situation didn't turn out as you would have liked. I can def relate. More than you know. Sounds like you did good that day though. :)

    You are making the right choice for yourself. Right choices are not always easy choices, but it seems like you are armed and ready. We love Starbucks Passion fruit Iced Tea too LOL Hang in, better days are ahead. You are definitely worth it- keep pushing! emoticon

    Ok, so far, so good. Took my break and ran across the street for scrambled eggs and sausage, then, stopped by Starbucks and got an unsweetened passion iced tea, dropped some Splenda in there and stood in the sun on the sidewalk for a minute, breathing deeply.

    The triggers haven't gone away, but, I proved to myself I can make good choices during emotional moments.

    Of course, its only 11 a.m. Day is not even half over emoticon

    Going to need a protein packed lunch! emoticon

    I think you are making the right decision- stick with your guns and move on. Recongize the feelings you have for what they are and set them aside. Do something for yourself instead of eating or eating the wrong things. Go somewhere that you might actually meet someone else. Hang tough! emoticon

    Sorry the lovely, tingly feelings got interrupted by some harsh reality. Here's hoping that your awareness of your feelings and triggers helps change the outcome you're pondering right now.


    Let the nice weather help you find something else to lift your mood!

    Only if you let it...

    Instead of grabbing a bag of anything, fill a water bottle and leave your place and walk.. walk the dog, the neighbor's dog, a squirrel.. or just walk your mind, into another place.. Stay away long enough to watch others walk by and wonder what their big struggle is for the day as they pass by. Drink that water and as you return, feel great about yourself that you did something different...
