Hey forum. whats up? bad thread title? hmmmm...
me and my girlfriend are going through a rough patch that started a month ago. We're not together, but we are together? Its silly. I understand that everyone feels like they are the only person thats been through this etc. Thats not what I am here for. I wont go into details about the situation, but in summary, she feels that she needs some time to sort herself out. There is no definite timeline or outcome. She just needs some space.
I've been pretty pathetic with not calling/texting her. I think out of the month maybe a total of 5 days have passed that we havent talked. We keep running into each other at the pub or in the street and talking about the same stuff. Its one giant loop and its not helping either of us.
Now, two nights ago I caught up with an old friend who happened to be going through the same thing. Shes not a huge talker though, so I ended up holding up the conversation. We talked over a few cups of coffee pretty much strictly about her current relationship situation.
Why is it that I was capable of giving her advice for certain scenarios and felt totally confident in doing it, but when I am confronted with these problems, I cant follow my own advice?
If I cant follow my own advice and help myself, should I be attempting to help others? I feel Im a bad person. Shed some light.
is it as simple as things are easier said than done?
