I met someone through my workplace..the most unplanned and exciting thing that has happened to me in almost a year...I can't lie it has been wonderful, the excitement, the desire, the newness, I have felt like a kid in a candy store, I have had that giddy feeling that I didn't think I would have...when my X left me I didn't see any light at the end of the tunnel. I spent days..nights..weeks crying, laying in bed, going through my day to day just like a zombie trying to put one foot in front of the other. I am aware of the rebound statistics and this is not a rebound situation I am, but I am taking it slow, cautious to some degree because I got burned pretty badly,but on the other hand I want to experience life if this is meant to be I don't want to hold back because of what my ex did to me. I want to ask you all out there something..i feel that I am finally at a place where I have forgiven my ex for the cheating and leaving me, I have forgiven myself for the pain i caused in the relationship as well, so I feel like I have came to a place of letting go. I have moved on, when the new person kissed me it was like all the pain and everything to do with my X just flew out the window. I literally stopped thinking about my ex and began to allow myself to be happy again...but I do find myself occassionally thinking about my X, not comparing or missing my X but just like thinking and it scares me a little. I guess I feel like now that I am with someone new I shouldn't even think of my X but on the other hand I feel it is only natural because it was such a big part of my life. I can't tell my friends because they would all say Im crazy or def not tell the new partner because that would just bring insecurities. It's not that I miss my ex, I would never go back to that situation and I see how unhealthy it is now, but I just find myself thinking of our pets that are still with X and thinking about random things like how my X still has some of my favorite clothes that I will never get back...am I crazy?
