Dating emotionally damaged women
[Read: The consequences of making someone a priority when you’re only an option to them] And then, it happens again. And finally, it reaches a point where you feel suffocated and weak, and don’t even know why you’re feeling so helpless. Emotional abuse is any kind of psychological abuse that traumatizes a person’s mind or their state of being, forcing them to feel weak, traumatized and helpless.You may feel moments of emotional abuse now and then in your own relationships with the people around you, be it with your parents, siblings, friends or even your romantic partner.These women told me that, because of some horrible past dating experience, they’re now scared to move forward, scarred by bad romantic memories.One woman told me she now freaks out if a relationship escalates, and she tends to run away, leaving the situation because she couldn’t handle a serious meltdown again.She said she was going to just that, and I hope she does. Heartache sucks, but you’ll be stronger in the long run.
To me, that highlights the single reason why these women won’t find true happiness in a relationship.
I don’t know that I fully agree with that, but it’s neither here nor there! The best things come when you’re least expecting them. Everything happens for a reason, so don’t close yourself off from a potential prospect because of a looming fear of being hurt.
Do you really want to close yourself off from finding something special? But when saddled with the choice of sitting it out and playing it safe or just going for it, I’d take the risk of getting hurt any day of the week. One woman I spoke to mentioned to me that she found this amazing guy, and they get along great together, but they both recently got out of relationships and are extremely guarded.
Everyone goes through a different recovery process when a relationship ends.
Much like grieving a death, recovering from the end of a relationship takes time and involves step-by-step improvement.
