Am I right to sit by the phone wishing my ex-boyfriend will ring?
The questioner's philosophy
After we broke up, it bothered me a little and I called him back, he said he wanted his freedom and has been talking to his ex-girlfriend and some other girls. In the meantime I'm sitting at home waiting for him to call me. I haven't been able to sleep well and I haven't eaten in a while either.
My mom is a real support, but I'm just not taking any chances of giving up on him. Is this a ridiculous thing to do? To stay with him, even though he doesn't want to continue?
I suggest you get your confidence back by putting on your make up, dressing up and going out with the girls. This will help you to feel powerful once more as an independent woman. Also take up some new interests and hobbies to fill the time you would have spent with your boyfriend.
Never let wishing, wondering and longing for a man, diminish your power as an independent woman. The world is full of great men and you are well able to attract a man who will admire you for who you are. You are learning that people in general and men in particular are free agents and at times they will do things that frustrate and surprise you and you have to accept this. You cannot control people in personal relationships. You have to love them as they are and, if necessary, love them and let them go!
