A year? It was love if you had a strong connection with this man! Don't think it was an obsession!
Do you ever wonder if the man you loved , still love you and want you in his life and get back together someday!
If you know there's no chance , then you need to really move on. It'll hurt for a while but you will grow stronger and wise and when you least expect it this man or another man will come into your life and make it all better!
Try being this man his friend if there is a chance. If not, Then you know what to do!
It was love because you had string feelings for someone who had those feelings before. It didn't work out its actually heartbreak and people go through this if they don't take control of it and are reminded of the person
Oh, that's not that bad. It has been 2 1/2 years since my bf (from back then) broke up with me and I still miss him till this day. If it was meant to be, I believe that the future will bring us together, if not then it's not. Lol. But I will ALWAYS have love for him (had TBI and he would be by my side when I was practically gone..not in this world or the afterlife, I was half here and half there) All I can tell you, is that time will tell. Just be patient and the truth will come out :)
It sounds like it has become an obsession. It is normal to grieve over the loss of a relationship, however, it is not good to stay "stuck" on something that is long over. It is time to look to your future instead of staying trapped in the past. Find a new hobby, take up a new sport, start working out at a gym a few days a week, give some of your free time to someone less fortunate--be a volunteer at a hospice or your local animal shelter. Feelings follow actions, so if you force yourself to move forward and look ahead with optimism, you will find that you are a strong, confident woman who can take care of herself. And that's the best gift you could ever give yourself!
Same question crossed my mind last year when it happened to me. At first, it was a big crush with the obsession of the idea that we'd met up one day again. 3 years went by and I got my chance. I had fallen in love, though only for a few months. Despite the horrible breakup, I never regretted a thing about it. She was such a special woman in my life and I had learned a lot from her. If any of this sounds like your situation, I'd call it love. Call it obsession if you fell for your guy for his physique, status, and material possessions. But sounds like love to me. Hate to say it but you'll have to hang in there a little longer. If you need to talk to a counselor, go for it. I'm almost broke so I had to be stronger than I've ever been in my life. Good luck to you.
