Physically I’ve been feeling great, (running, cleaning the house, lifting) but now I have something new, loneliness. Before I started to feel hurt, I was very independent and driven. I was always working on my art. My boyfriend (we’ve been together for 6 years) was always fine with that. If I didn’t call, no biggie. If I wanted to work late, no biggie. We’d hang out on weekends and have a fantastic time and then I would disappear for a few days and show back up. He was always there for me. He moved in with me and my roommate 3 years ago and things were going fine. Many times, I’d work on my art all weekend, and he’d play video game and around dinner time, we’d be like, “Hey lets hang out.” I never felt unloved or lonely. Then I got hurt and stopped making art. I stopped working out. I stopped being me. My boyfriend started working very long hours and we hardly saw each other. When we did have time together, I couldn’t really do much. Yet, he never left my side, through all my pain and anxiety. I recently told him, that I’d like to see him around a bit more and he said he’d work less hours and spend more time with me. He’s been true to his word, as much as work permits. Yet I still have a lingering loneliness feeling? One thing I have noticed, is that I still don’t make art anymore. Maybe that’s it? Sometimes we’ll hang out all night and have a wonderful time and I'll be so happy and I’ll get lonely the very next day at work. We spent all Sat playing video games and then saw a movie and I’m feeling lonely today. I was never like this before. Never. I could go days without seeing him, still feel fully confident in our love for each other. I love him and I know he loves me. I just think I still have a broken part somewhere in there. I think it's not him or us, I think it's me and I want to heal me. You can't be a strong couple if you're broken inside. What do you guys think?
