    Default Post 30 day NC Challenge

    Well where to begin? I believe it was 45 days or so ago I decided that I was going to try the whole No Contact challenge. My first go at it she called me 3 days later to tell me she thinks we should stay broken up for know, because people cant change in a month. So I started from day 1 again and then a few days later I broke NC and texted her, same stuff different day. So again I started over.

    This most recent try was successful to say the least!


    So here I sit 30 days later, am I a changed man that has all the answers on what to do to get you back? No but I will share with you what I did.
    The first thing I did was to accept the fact that me and my ex were over. This is so crucial because without doing this I would still be sitting here holding onto every ounce of hope I could find. Yes I know never lose hope but here

    Great post Josh, you inspire me, really. I want to let go so bad, but I'm so scared, scared that if I stop thinking of her she will be gone from me forever. At the same time I desperately want to let go but can't seem to do it.

    Thanks for your inspiration,... I'm on day 19 of NC and have no intention of breaking it as I don't see the point. She doesn't seem to care less about me so I have no choice.
    -Peace
    Dan

    Dan- I am glad I inspired you in any shape or form. I am still scared of letting go completely as well man. The thing to remember was our ex's were the one's who let US go. We just need to learn how to let go of the memories. That for me is the hard part, I am fine untill a thought pops up in my head...Then BAM! sadness. The thing is its just a memory now, she is no longer a part of my life. If she doesn't care then why should I?...So keep your spirits up my man, your on Day 19 and you seem to be doing good. Keep it up and if you ever need any ideas feel free to message me...

    -Josh

    great post and everything you said really is so true. that said, i'm on the same page as dan. it all makes sense and i wish i could fully embrace and believe in what you said but i just don't know how to let go of him. knowing that one day, (maybe i am being naive but i just FEEL it that it will him him) he will KNOW that he was a fool and he let go of something great. but i also understand the value of trying to find yourself and be the most important person in your life. i need to find myself again and be comfortable with just me. its hard though, after sharing your life with someone for so long.
