That includes your ex-gfs or ex-wifes....Were they emotionally stable or neurotic, easy to be disturbed and how did they affect your emotional and mental life?....Did you ever hurt in the relationships?...Are you sane right now?....Tell me your story and make it short...

AsI look back on my ex now.

I find more peace in the home with my 2 kids. I think they do too.

She had a lot of issues tha two of us did not share. That bothered her that didn't me.

Not to make a long story short, however there were others of course...

Ex-wife. Simply put, she could have been accused of false advertising. Actually her and her mom and dad as well. She and them showed me one thing up to the marriage, and upon being married, all three of them turned into something much different than what I had seen prior. The were seeking money and property. My family, (and please notice that I said family and not "I") owns a lot of property. When she filed for divorce, she laid claim to property that had been in our family for over 120 years.

Good news.........she was set straight by a very wise and patient Superior Court Judge. She got nothing. I got wise.

Did it hurt? Yes. Did it change me? Absolutely. Am I sane right now? Probably more than ever in my life. Mosts importantly, I am happy these days. And I enjoy my life as it is.

I gained a new appreciation for who I am and a realisation life is meant to be lived for all its ups and downs and best and most thankfully of all - the bad times do pass if you do something proactive...

Ouch !!!! I shutter to think about the door on the you know what. I think I am a much better person because of all my ex's. I love having a man in my life, but I also know I can still enjoy life on my own if i don't have one

You want it short?

They were crazy, and now I'm always expecting the worst. (even moreso than the girl before her made me)

All relationships are a lesson in life.
I've learned alot,lost a little and for the most part came out a better person.
I would'nt want anyone to have a power to change who I am, so I don't, just made that choice.

I've never felt so alone as when I was with her. Everything was my fault. I litterally began to think the only thing that would make her happy was if I killed myself.

After I left - the only other option was suicide - the mental abuse continued, only not as often and the focus shifted to my failures as a father to our son.

I'm as close to sane as I'll ever get right now! LOL!!

Actually, things really began to turn around for me when I honestly admitted my own failures. While I was working on myself something within me changed about her. I began to see her as broken and actually feel somewhat sorry for her.

The reality is she is blind to herself and I don't think it's something she chose. I think she is broken and can't see the effect she has on other people and it's really sad.

She educated me................

I have now learned how to identify psychopaths and therefore am able to avoid them now

Wow i'd really love to say I was a macho on this one but heay af6ter23 years lets face it your not only inlove its like part of you so needless to say when we divorced it was like a large part of me was missing for quite awhile.I wasn't the type to seek sultice in anohters arms Iprefered to wait and see what came of it.WellI did about 2 monthsafterward I got into another relationship that lasted over 8 years.but Idon,t think i'd gotten over then first yet so when rhis one ended I promisied myself i'd wait at least 3 years.Wahoo did and am loving life also the children I got to take care of..The most importantant thing to me is I GOT TO LEARN something new>>>>>>Gary
