I would like to get some advice on how long, and how to get over a relationship. I was with my boyfriend for 3 years and we broke up about 8 months ago. We did have a fantastic relationship the majority of the time, but there were many occasions when he did hurt me quite badly and I tried to make him aware of this but he could not see how. I still loved him more and more even still, but he has now finished the relationship and I am left not being able to get over it.
It's been a long while now and I thought I would start feeling better. I am generally ok throughout the day, but then have major relapses of what I can only describe as depression. I can't meet anyone else because I still feel as if I am in love with my ex and I can't seem to feel anything for anyone else.
Advice would be much appreciated
