Struggling to work on my Boundaries homework for a class that I am taking on Wed nights, the material is written by Drs Henry Cloud and John Townsend, knowledgeable men/authors. I can't determine if it is my anxiety or "brain fog" that makes me feel so confused as I attempt to answer the questions and end up questioning myself as to whether or not I understand the question. It could be that I am tired of reading to understand things and yet I don't think I can stay the way I am because I am lonely and fearful of relationships, not fearful of others so much as fearful that I will again choose someone unhealthy and I couldn't bear to go through that again. Does this make sense to anyone?
My marriage ended in 2003 and I have not been in another relationship since, though I've admitted my loneliness to God and others - it is the wrong reason to begin dating. I welcome the insight of others who may have had the same issue at one time as I hate feeling confused.
