Im sad, yet cant help the title. At least its funny right? Im into month 6 of a breakup. Yes I know how that sounds. Things went off a cliff in May, and now we're totally split, and I thought id resolved all my issues, but lo and behold, my ex decides to spill the beans about other indiscretions in our relathionship. im usually a sucker for wanting to know things like that when it might have been best for him to not mention anything. But he said his conscience was killing him. Basically it turns out that since we started going downhill, he found someone else, and is now happily with him. Great, I cudda dealt with that if he had told me when we first started splitting up. But over the past 6 months hes kinda tugged me along, and used me in a way, making me pity him to stay by him. He always made me feel like if he got over his physical injury, that our relationship cud get back on track and everything wud be fine, hence why i put up with it. I thought it was him going through a painful process. But it turns out that his injuries were not as severe as he made them out to be, hes well on the road to recovery and had shacked up with another guy. My ex has a young son who looked forward to me coming to live with them. Now this little boy thinks I hate him, and my ex will do nothing to explain that to him, other then his talk about how he has a new guy. BUT, the ex wants to be friends, watch baseball games and movies together, etc. WTF do i do? We've been through a lot together. I dated his best friend until he committed suicide, and we were there for each other through that long and painful process. He still has issues to deal with regarding that, so i kind of feel like cutting off all contact wud be abandoning him and cruel on my part, since this new guy isnt gonna be able to help him with his issues. Am i just a door mat or too kind for my own good or what? I need to get over this, its fucking up my work habits and everything.
