I feel like I'm stuck in a moment.

I’m currently broken up with a woman I’ve been in an on and off relationship with for the last 4 years and I want to finally close the door, let go and move on. [more inside]

Abandon ship, once and for all, or fight for what I have?

Seven months ago I cheated on my partner. Six months ago I came clean to him. Three months ago we broke up. This past week we have begun to spend some time together, and I feel like we both reached a breakthrough last night. Am I crazy to have this renewed faith in/willingness to work for our love? Do I need to finally let it go? Much more inside. [more inside]

The only thing harder than breaking up

Working with an ex. We just got out of each other's space. Now our only point of interaction is work. It is awkward and uncomfortable, not just because of the obvious but also because it seems he's going out of his way to be unpleasant. The job is great, the pay is amazing, and the company is awesome. I've been there for a year. He's been there for a year and three months. Quitting is not an option for either of us. [more inside]

Don't Know how to ease my mom's burden

I feel bad giving tough love to my mom when she is feeling depressed about breaking up with her asshole boyfriend. I don't know how to make her situation better for her, or to ease her pain. All I can do is lend an ear but its annoying that my privacy is invaded constantly because shes totally out of it. I never had a private moment to myself all my life, that's a different story. How can I make light of the situation without losing my own sanity?

Need advice on how to accept my daughter spending so much time with her father, his family and his new girlfriend.

I had posted a question a little while ago on how to finally move on after ending the on again off again relationship I had with my daughter's father. I received great avice, thanks. I cannot say that I have yet fully moved on, but I am now having more good days than bad. However, one thing I am having such a hard time dealing with is the fact that my daughter is now spending so much time with either his family or his new girlfriend, who he began seeing again only 3 weeks after we broke up. (he dated her briefly during one of our separations) [more inside]
