It is a long journey letting go of someone you love so very much while standing there, helpless to stop the hurt and pain. This is part of my healing journey. I hope anyone who feels like it will respond.
It's not MY fault you were hurt.
It's not MY fault you can't always respond to my touch.
It's not MY fault you can't express your feelings to me, be they good, bad, or whatever.
It's not MY fault you can't verbalize your thoughts without becoming agitated.
It's not MY fault you have anxiety attacks which make you violently ill.
It's not MY fault that you cannot find joy or happiness in your life as I do.
It's not MY fault that you are not able to give more to our relationship.
It's not MY fault that society, in general, doesn't understand or support male survivors.
It's not MY fault that you cannot set and accomplish goals for yourself as I have set for myself.
enough for now, I think you all get the drift. I hope some partners will join in; this is meant to be therapeutic and to help us regain our own sense of self-worth which is sometimes trampled by our partner's issues.
