Re: Feel the same way these guys do
I agree with Batman on the halo effect. It's very strange but we all do this coming out of a break-up. My suggestion is that you write a list of at least ten of her faults. Don't concentrate on any of her positive traits, bash her and take her off the pedestal that you've placed her on. It really does help.
I know you're hurting and it's really hard to take everyone's advice and work-out, talk to other women, etc. You're going to have to reach deep down and find the inner warrior inside of you. What are you really made of when your back is against the wall? Are you going to let this woman destroy you or are you going to fight by pushing forward every day until you feel strong again? Take it one day at a time.
I guarantee you that this is just a storm and it will pass. I've survived several gut-wrenching break-ups in my life so believe me man, I know. Stay strong buddy...
