Your love relationship wasn't always a very comfortable place to be, was it? Fits and sulks, arguments and deadly silences with much left unsaid in the spaces between verbal assaults. You laid the fault for this open warfare at your lover's feet, but think about it: Were you really the kind of mate you'd have liked to come home to?
Were you sweet and loving or bossy and demanding? Did you long to hold your lover close, or bash a frying pan over their head? The going was rough that you finally gave up. Yet how happy are you, really, without this relationship that caused you such strife? There could have been much to gain if you were willing to do a little more work. And the first thing on your to-do list should have been an honest look at yourself. Were you dragging baggage from your past into the problems of this relationship? Were you tweaking your lover's insecurities because of your own? Try analyzing this relationship in terms of your past, particularly if, during the relationship, you had the feeling that you'd been there before. You're going to have to work out your psychological hang-ups now, or you risk repeating the same pattern again and again.
