Advice for getting over the past?

Hi, I am feeling reallu anxious and depressed lately. Ive had to sever several toxic relationships this year, end a relationship a few months ago and I feel like I have hardly anyone to talk to anymore. I still have feelings for my ex but he lied many times and cant go back to a liar even tho we text the odd time. O want to move on and meet peopke w better characters but so hard to meet new ppl. I feel really alone. Any advice?

Hi I definitely know how you feel. I don’t really have many friends and I’ve had to end friendships/relationships in the past because I didn’t feel they were good for me mentally. I definitely don’t think you should go back to someone who didn’t treat you right because you don’t deserve that. I feel the same way though when trying to find better people out there to form friendships with though. I’ve also always had the problem of wanting to form friendships too quickly because of how I perceived friendships at a young age. I am here if you ever want to chat :)

Thanks for understanding. I trust too easily and go to fast as well but live and learn. We should be proud of ourselves for ending unhealthy relationships.

You’re right and I’m definitely better off without those people. I hope you feel the same.

When Im lonely I waver but I know deep down I will be happier in the future for it. My counsellor said there will be some pain to get to a better place so have to remember that.

I understand. I start to get spiraling thoughts when I’m lonely.

Thats a good idea. I think I do need break from dating..just miss the attention but I have to be stronger. A hobby is a good idea too..just havent picked one yet where i can meet others. Thx for advice.
