I have been feeling kind of emotional over the past couple of days. I am not sure why I have been feeling like this, but I am having a bit of a set back in terms of how I have been feeling. I am back to having trouble sleeping, and feeling pretty anxious a lot of the time. It probably has something to do with the stress that I have been feeling about rewriting the LSAT, but I am not sure.
This morning at work one of my coworkers was telling me about a friend of hers who is going through a divorce. Her friend and her husband have been separated for about a month and a half, and her friend is getting ready to move back to this city, from away. She is here for the next few weeks sorting things out, and getting ready to go through the motions of the separation.
Anyways this weekend, she went on a date.
My coworker told me about it, thinking that it would make me feel good. Show me that other people have hard times, and they get out there and get dating again.
But for some reason, it totally overwhelmed me. Dating? After being separated from her husband for less than 2 months? That terrified me. My ex and I have been broken up for over five months. And I so do not feel ready to date. I am just starting to realize that men exist. The thought of going out on a date is so overwhelming to me. I can't imagine being able to put myself out there like that. And try to meet someone.
I actually burst into tears in her office. (This is not the first time I have cried in front of this coworker, we are pretty close).
I don't know why I am having this setback. And feeling totally overwhelmed by everything.
Has anyone else felt this way? Felt like you were moving in the wrong direction?
