hard time letting people go

There are people I got rid of in my life as far as 8 years ago. And I still find myself missing them. I thought with time it would have all went away. But I guess it doesn't. Even if the person wasn't even that good for me.

Sometimes I will cry and really miss the person. And I get bitter/resentful that I had to make that decision.

I wish I didn't feel that way. I wish I could somehow just feel OK about it and not think about it. I don't have a lot of people in my life, so that probably plays a factor as well.

I know it's painful to have to make a decision like that, Littlesongbird. When I removed a few people from my life in early recovery, I was surprised to find that new and healthy people appeared. Maybe you could try adding an activity to your life that might bring encourage new friendships.

resentments are our #1 offender ...
