Challenge is to live alone and not be lonely.

CHALLENGE:  to live alone and not be lonely.
Its scary to live alone.  All those on this web site are used to having our late-companions/husbands/partners/significant other with us and now they are gone.  I know I have to break up with Dave but its hard to do since I know I will be alone when I do.  No matter how much I know Dave is wrong for me, its the loneliness thing that makes me hesitate.  I have been advised that its like a band-aid, the quicker and faster I do it, the healing can begin.  Its good advice.  The longer I take breaking up with Dave, the longer it will take for me to find someone that I am actually looking for in my life.  Its all so true.  Sigh!  I know it in my heart.  Everyone on this site has given me excellent advice.  I know what to do in my heart.  My head knows what to do.  I am sitting here more frustrated than ever.  I know why I am prolonging the inevitable.  I feel like such a coward.  Its hurting both of us.  I am not doing Dave a service by staying with him even though I want to break up with him.  
I just needed to vent and I know what I have to do but thanks for listening.  You don't have to comment on this journal entry.  I hope everyone is having a great day from Diane B.
