no matter what it is: food, alcohol, sugar, drugs, people, places, dreams, whatever.
At moments the longing can become severe and you crave to have it not just in your mind but in reality and the fact that you can’t, for whatever reason (even if it’s in your best interest) can make you a bit miserable.
But then the moments come less and less, as other things fill your life and maybe you will always have pangs of longing forever (miss you so much cheese 😣), but you learn to accept it. You learn to focus on other things and slowly the moments of longing are more and more bearable.
I’ve never had an easy break up with anything or anyone (that I can recall). I don’t know why. I suppose because I’m passionate about things and I get attached. I can’t really say beyond that. But I’ve been through it so many times that I’ve just learned to accept it as part of life. It hurts sometimes. What can you do?
