Breakup letter dating an alcoholic
Are you aiming for that allusive “closure” in some shape or form?Or are you doing it because you’re feeling desperate for some form of “contact”, any contact, with your ex?During the past 8 months I have basically been living with another man in a neighbouring town to the one I live in.I am drawn to men who are starkly different than my husband, who is an intellectual, moderate in terms of his vices and has a disdain for the type of men who spend every evening in a pub.However, if you make any changes what so over, the clock resets and you start the 48 hours over again.Personally though I love the idea of it, I don’t think I really managed to do it (I can be a little impulsive to be fair).Because until you can get to that point, I would recommend keeping the letters to yourself, in your journal, and stick to “No Contact”. Here’s one of mine – ten year’s on, a thank you letter to my ex.
If it did result in reconciliation it seldom lasted long.Over the years here, there have been countless questions, comments, musings about whether or not someone should write a letter to their ex.I can’t tell you how many times I’ve contemplated that myself on a personal basis.I have taken far more advantage of the openness of our marriage than my husband, at least until recently.
I have had a string of long-term affairs and short-term flings.If you’re writing to say how hurt, angry, used, or whatever you feel – the chances are they already know it. It’s seldom (if ever) one person’s fault that things don’t work out.
