You're all torn up, but you're finally ready to let go of a past love... Until those nagging thoughts intrude again, and suddenly what is true and wha...
People often ask me how it is that I can be quite so ok. The wonder how it is that since the sudden and very painful break down of my marriage, my ex and I are still friends. They seem amazed that I don't harbor any hatred or anger towards what happened. Here are my reasons.

I love to eat, and then eat. It's just the consequences I hate. What's a potato chip but a prelude to the whole bag? What's an M&M but a tease for ...

It is very painful to break up with a partner under the best of circumstances, but breaking up with a partner who exhibits borderline traits can be far worse.
Endings are complicated. It is difficult to deal with why something that once felt so good went south. But when you are faced with this circumstance, you will figure out what is the best way to handle all the mementos that you accumulated during the relationship.
How do all of these girls successfully get over their exes? Mostly by doing one small thing. Not talking to them.
All of us have wounds. People who have hurt us, even broken us. For the most part I've healed and moved on from those that have caused me heartache and pain. But every now and then a scar is reopened and I experience a moment of temporary insanity.
In my view the #1 predictor of a break up would be the rate at which the partners in a relationship stop demonstrating the small daily gestures that make you feel special and loved and connected in that relationship.
