Breakup letter dating an alcoholic
How would you feel if you got a simple “Thanks” by way a response?
How would you feel if they asked you to never contact them again?
What are you hoping to achieve from this prose you’re sending? Are you really gonna let him or her have a real piece of your mind?
Or maybe you planning on begging for another chance?
But, I also notice that many describe their own addiction of sorts – to the partner.
Choice 2 would be that you leave in a way that magnifies the potential for a negative outcome, say by being mean, impulsive or passive, neglecting the care of your self, your social network, financial interests and so on.
I do consider all the points above and make sure when I send something it’s from a positive, letting go frame-of-mind.
If you are sending a letter (or an email) to an ex with no hope for reconciliation, no expectation for response, and with a view of letting go, and moving on I say go ahead and “go for it”.
Choices 3 and 4 would be the most attentive, well-equipped approach to staying with her, vs. In other words, the way in which you select a choice and then follow through on it what is important, and it is where you can make nitty-gritty choices on a day-to-day basis.
The working out of those specifics might be where your attention is going to be productive. Al-Anon is not for everyone in your situation, but those who do find it helpful would probably say that it’s the repeated attendance that makes it work.
