Please help me deal with these feelings of hurt, doubt, guilt, anxiety.

I told my rebound relationship today that I have just realised we are moving to quickly and I think we should put the breaks on because I have just realised I am not over my ex. My ex broke up with me 8 months ago and has just recently contacted me to make amends. I had forgotten about him and learned to live with the hurt and rejection. I met my recent boyfriend only 2 weeks after splitting up with my ex and we went full force to the point he even moved in with me. I feel so stupid that I allowed things to go this far and feel very very upset about the whole thing, especially to drag someone else into this.

I truly believe that I could have been happy with my rebound relationship, but broke it off as it is not fair to still have feelings for my ex.

Now I feel rock bottom and hard to face anything or anyone, I honestly feel like curling up and burying my head in the sand.

Please can someone help me move onwards and upwards.

Butterflyfly agony auntLooks like you need to be on your own for alitle while to learn what you really want. Going from a relaitonship to the next, no matter how well intende or genuine you have been, gave you no time to reflect truly on why your ex is/or isnt's not good for you, as probably the new guy filled in all that being needed and wanted space. Maybe you should 'hide' from both for a little while. You might realise your ex is not what you want anymore.
