My name is Zoe, last year my fiance broke up with me to start dating my best friend and I am still not ok. It has been a year and I still feel so much sadness and emptiness after what happened. I truly believed I had found my other half and he shuttered my heart. I quit my job because me and my ex-best friend used to be colleagues. I have another job now, which I hate. I lost my closest friend and the love of my life. Seeing them together kills me. I really don't know how to get other this. I am not in my 20s anymore either so I feel like I gave everything to him and now it's too late to try again and I am still not over it and I don't know if I ever will be. What do I do? I can't handle this unhappiness anymore.
Hi @ZoeRina! How are feeling today?
I am so sorry to hear about that happening to you. Have you tried talking to a therapist? I think it could help you feel a bit better. Also how about medication and journaling? In my past experiences that can be very therapeutic. I wish you all the best and will try to tag some members who might want to share their thoughts on this matter.

I was married to girl I met when I was sixteen, then found at around 30 she was having an affair with someone at work. Devastating as it was and we had two children to add to the equation. Thrust into single life again was a disturbing experience and I did not establish a new relationship for many years. Getting back to work and mixing with people is essential and we have the bizarre online world to expand our relationships. Single life again is daunting especially after longterm relationships, but it is not the end of your life, just a new begining, embrace it. 45% of all long term relationships occur at work plus taking on little jobs that involve meeting people gets you reconnecting with the human race again.
You emotions will always stay part of you but will reduce in strength over the years as you develop a new life for yourself. I have since remarried to a lovely women, had a child and been together nearly 40 years. So you can rebuild, emotions will fade, you can meet a new love in your life etc. it just takes time. I can only say a year is nothing, you want to get over your emotional damage before trust can restart in a new relationship, you may have a few bumps on the way. Be patient, good luck, you can learn to love again!
