Oh man it hurts - Grieving a lost relationship

Grieving a lost relationship while you realize it wasn't good but gave so much money, time and effort leading to depletion and both of us triggering our own traumas. My twin sister introduced him to one of her best friends as an opportunity to help him with work during the pandemic. Her friend is a millionaire. A year later they partnered up on a small business venture and both of them now act like we don't exist. That was in April. We both get the silent treatment and its been painful for both of us. Its like they died. And her best friend who was introduced to my bf at the time has the same CPTSD all of us do! He does too!
Its like they went down a path together that is not about inner change but all about attention and delusions. That's all of our struggle right?
Its the silent treatments that are still so painful in their own way. And realizing all the work and investment you put in because you thought it was love, was not. And that hurts! But its a step away from this and a step closer to a new journey,

Thank you for letting me share.
I really appreciate this site!

Hi Barb,

Nice to meet you. Sounds like a really difficult situation.

Are you able to do anything for yourself that brings you joy?
Its been a while but am trying. Thanks for reaching out and asking! I am in such a state of chronic hyper vigilance now, its beyond me. I am trying to figure out how to let my body calm down. I don't know what joy is or peace of mind. Its something I used to know. I forgot what that is. But I am trying! Also, your name is my twin sister's name which is very strange.
I hope the day is good to you!
