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?
