Why can’t I feel any more?

Why can’t I feel any more?

I feel like something is broken.  I don’t feel like I will ever be able to trust another man or be able to fall in love again.  I gave everything to a man for 6 years.  He was my world.  He took and took and I accepted it.  I’m only 47, and I want to be able to be loved like I deserve.  Why can’t I feel anymore?

  1. First, I offer my comments with love and caring – it’s the holiday season, be kind to your SELF. You don’t say how long you’ve been apart – there is such a journey to healing. I found numbness to be part of my journey too. For me, deep work on my SELF, finally facing what made me a match for attracting a narcissist into my life, moved me into recovery. It’s a journey, this healing from a narcissist. I’m 61 – I’m 13 months out, divorced in August. I trust in the universe that what is meant for me I will attract, at some point in the future, but for right now, I’m having a freakin blast rediscovering ME. I was with the exN 17.5 years. They deplete your soul, so you have the work ahead to get the help you need to heal and rediscover YOU. That you’re reaching out is wonderful! Your job now is to discover what inside you allowed you to accept being treated that way – it’s what we ALL have to do. Wishing you a peaceful day – and I pray you find quiet within your mind to enjoy what you HAVE not ache for what your though you had.

  2. Its been a year for me
    And 6 years I spent with someone also. I never knew this part until he went from me to someone right away. He has and continues to make my life terrible.
    I’ve been working on myself the last year. I’m more aware and am careful but I’m still broken. He has a reputation to uphold. I pray for you. Take care of you first and foremost it takes time to heal and I know I’m not there

  3. My God I feel the same way…..numb very numb…..I feel like I’ve no reason to move forward. I Have no energy or desire to do anything or go anywhere except to work and then home. I’ve never been a homebody but now it’s the only place I want to be anywhere else sends me into a panic attack. It’s been 5 horrible months since I ended it when does it get easier?

  4. I feel the same, its been 4 years since he left me a financial and emotional wreck. I honestly do not think I will ever trust a man again. I am content being on my own, one day maybe I will feel again but for now I don’t need it.

  5. Thank you all for the positive feedback. I left him in July with the clothes I was wearing. Everything I own is still at his house. I don’t want to go back and deal with him, I know I am weak and will not be able to walk away again. I am trying to rebuild myself, but I am missing the rare good times. He had his moments when he was nice to me. However the bad outweighed the good. I just have to keep reminding myself of that.

  6. I ended a 30 years relationship ten months ago. Yes, I feel empty, drained, and all used up. Totally, totally, totally used and drained! I am slowly trying to crawl out of the woodwork..because I want to stay hidden and blend into the background.
