My girlfriend and I of 10 months broke up a week or two ago, her choice. I can find no way to occupy my time to not think about her, and every time I do it just hurts more and more. I keep on hurting myself emotionally by trying to reconnect with her whether its a phone call or her coming over to hang out. I try telling myself I can handle it, but everytime I do I still end up getting hurt. I want to just leave her behind and go my own way because I believe its what's best in the long run, but I can't muster up the strength to do it. I (mistakenly, didnt have much control) tried to reason with her and probably just ended up screwing things more. When i'm at work or out I can keep myself distracted, but being in a small town where no one goes out leaves me inside a lot and thoughts of her push there way into my head. One of the main reasons for the breakup was our distance apart (shes CT, i'm MA). She hinted at getting back together when school started, which of course gets my hopes up and sets me up to be burned again. She's not a slutty girl or anything, so i'm not worried shes off screwing around - but it still sucks. Emotional Pain Sucks Disclaimer: I am emotionally torn up, but I am no means in the realm of physical pain, nothing of the sort will happen.
