Breaking up with a nonPD romantic partner.

So, I just split up with my very lovely bf of two years. I'm really sad but that's it!

There was never a trace of FOG in the relationship and the break up was honest and kind, both ways. I'm gonna cry a lot, I know but it's not a headf**k. I'm not anticipating hoovering, smearing or any other weird stuff.

Life after PDs carries no assurance of happy ever after but it's a lot more straightforward! Send hugs .
It gets better. It has to.

Thanks all. Just honest sadness and gratitude for a great two years.  Also, all the work I've done on my early life trauma, the attachment wounds and the codependency has really, really paid off. Gonna enjoy being single now 😁

Hey Boat Babe,

I'm really sorry it didn't work out. How great though, that you've come so far! You're right. Breakups can be honest and kind. How wonderful to experience a healthy, normal ending. That is a whole lot of healing. This is testament to all of the work you've done. I'm proud of you! And listening to your story gives me hope.

still a sureness in you, where there's a seamlessness in you, and where
there is a confidence and tranquility." John O'Donohue
