I've been in an open / off and on relationship for 3 years... I'm finally starting to feel like letting go. I desperately wanted to marry this person but they just don't feel the same way. Some day I want to have a life partner. How do I move on?
If you’ve been clinging to the past for a while and now feel you’ve missed out, shift the focus to everything you’ve gained. Maybe you’ve built great friendships or made great progress in understanding yourself better.
When you focus on the positive, it’s easier to move on because you’ll feel empowered and not victimized (by your ex, by yourself, or by time.) Whatever happened in the past, it prepared you for now—and now is full of opportunities for growth, peace, and happiness.
