Day 33 – Willpower

Is my will strong enough to stay single?

At least if you are quitting a drug, eventually your system becomes clean and the cravings will subside. But I don’t think love is like that.

If we were all able to give up on love after a period of abstinence, if we could make the need go away with only our willpower, the human race would soon die out. I’m rationalising my weakness here, but it’s true, isn’t it?

I know I said I wouldn’t dwell on the empty feeling anymore, but sometimes it’s so in my face that it can be hard to tune out. There is also the fear that my life will pass me by, but is that just the emptiness playing a dirty trick, trying to force me into action?

Can anyone give me some tips that they have found helpful in this situation?

  1. i found that i neglected my friends when i was in my previous relationship. post breakup, i’ve found love in all my friends and we’re able to discuss romantic stuff neutrally. its brilliant to find love everywhere – nature, friends, sports etc.

    • I think I have a problem then. I’ve been trying to reach out more to friends, but their love still leaves me feeling empty. Nothing seems to take the edge off but the prospect of romance 😦

  2. Why doesn’t WordPress present us with a ‘Like’ button for comment?! 🙂

    I totally agree with charmedbylove; you can find ‘love’ in your friends and family. Perhaps not all of them but, there’s likely to be one or two.
