Life is full of frustrations

Coping when your ex starts dating

He states that he doesn't respond to her request so she continually harasses us. Unfortunately, committed relationships are different. By taking such loving care of yourself, you will need much less from your ex-spouse- like approval, regret, jealousy, or acknowledgment. And it is definitely something that we all usually face at one time or another as we begin to move on just like our ex. Instead of asking yourself if you are wrong for feeling this way, I'd love for you take a few minutes and ask yourself why you are feeling this way.

My problem is that she just separated from her husband, and now she thinks that my husband should be there for her. By continuing to try to fix it and make it go away, it is only going to frustrate you and create friction and resentment between you and your husband. After that, challenge yourself to stop looking.

What bothers me is that he talks to her more than he talks to any of his other friends. The frustration, jealousy, doubts, and insecurities will seep into your relationship if you don't address them within yourself. You can choose to feel slighted because the sisters still include the ex and you would rather they include you more.

Like other feelings, jealousy is a choice.

She even left him several messages on his phone while we were on our honeymoon with harassing requests. If you don't, then know that that is your choice.

It took me a while to have the strength to look and delete our old photos. My suggestion for you would be to get real with yourself on where these feelings of insecurity are coming from. You wonder, even as great as your marriage is, if your husband can resist the lures and ties of this other woman. Like the question I just read, I am dealing with an ex-girlfriend. We will have different ways to cope and deal with it, but the outcome will always be the same.

The best life lessons are found in how we respond to the frustrations, and not just the best way to avoid them. It may be that he loses his time with them. When it comes to our daughter, we have always been there for her, but now the conversation is about her and she is starting to turn her back to me. You just have to wrap it up and move to the next chapter.

Your husband can feel that he is between a rock and a hard place. Always at the top of question list is who goes where, when, with whom, and how do you get there and back. My first thought is to continue to take wonderfully good care of yourself first.

My suggestion would be to stop complaining about it all, and begin to do something about it. It may be that you take legal steps as he is breaking his parenting agreement.
