I find myself in the same situation (relationship with opposite sex) I was in years ago which wasn't healthy. It makes me depressed. How can I stop this cycle from continuing on in my life?

Hi jn316,

It is hard when we get into a bad relationship. And when we keep repeating that. You need to think of your own self worth. You are worth more than what you are accepting in life. Keep posting and tell us a little more about the situation. Know that we are all here for you.

Welcome to the forum, I almost forgot. You will not be judged here, just helped.

Take care, and keep posting.

Hugs, Karen

hey jen, i can totally relate to your problem. all my life i thought i needed a man to fullfill me. financially, mentally, physically etc. i was a young single mother of 3 children. after a 7 year marriage of verbal abuse so bad sometimes i wish a punch would heal easier. i tried all i could, but drugs and alcohol took over my husband and he chose it over me and the children. but that didn't stop me. i needed someone else in my life to make me feel loved and needed. in retrospect i really wish i was comfortable inside my own skin and didn't think i needed a man to make me worthwhile. i went through alot of hardships. Mentally and fianlly physically abused by many men in my life after i left my husband. today i have polymyositis, which is brought on by, fatigue, stress, virus, hormonal changes and more stress. at last now in present day i'm not in love with anyone and i'm just fine with that. took a long time for me to get there, but truely i only want to be around my family and friends. i do have inner peace and do not need a man to valadate me. thank god.i'm not sure of your situation, but if you do indeed have children try to choose them and there life over the life of another lover or love. hormones are a *****. they take over us and tend to make us do things we'll regret later on in our lives. well take care and good luck, keep posting it feels good to let it out. ya never know who can touch and help with one line. peace and love, sue
