Normal to regret a breakup? - May 30th 2012, 02:18 AM

I've just broken up with my boyfriend of around a year and half who I still care for very much. We just felt we had grown apart and felt more like friends. Is it normal to feel really upset and regretting it even though I was the one initiating? I find myself wanting to go back and try and fix it but.. I guess I'll always look at the past through rose tinted glasses...


sooner or later though, you always have to w a k e u p

This is normal in relationships. Since you were the one that initiated it though, you have to think about why you did it. If you cannot see yourself working out long term with the person you are talking about, then it is right to start looking elsewhere and exploring your youth. If you feel like this is somebody you actually would like to commit to, then maybe you've made a mistake but like they say there are lots of 'fish in the sea',

I just felt like we were going nowhere... we saw each other all the time but we just sat in the same room doing our own thing and not talking. So I guess its probably the right thing.

It's okay. You got used to having him around. More than that, you got used to the "idea" of having him around. That's probably why you feel this way. But it's normal.
Everyone does something risky and later may feel like they regret it, but everything happens for a reason. Something good will definitely come out of it.
