"And since I lost you, it feels like years"

Relationships are hard under any circumstances. Different personalities, thoughts, needs and wants. They require a lot of work. It is hard to stay and can be hard to leave. If you cared about someone, but felt you had to cut them out of your life, it is hard. What makes it worse is, when you discover you were wrong. Being in a relationship with someone with PTSD is hard. It is damn near impossible when they refuse to get help. It is hell when neither of you know what it is!

A lot of people have spilt up with someone they cared about because there was no hope of restoring a normal relationship, or a functioning one. I've talked to a lot of people over the years who were beating themselves up for ending the relationship...most of the time, their marriages. When they realized they were dealing with PTSD in the one they ended up cutting out of their lives, they try to reconnect. 

It has happened, and there were a lot of happy endings with relationships restored, even if they were different. Sometimes there were other marriages that followed, but at least they were talking. That is a great thing if the couple had kids. Sometimes the couple decided to get re-married because love was still there.

Sometimes it is too late for any of it and regrets cannot be fixed. They can only be forgiven. If you didn't know what PTSD was, and tried to get back in touch with someone, forgive yourself. Understand that you did the best you could with what you knew at the time. Then learn all you can about it to give you the tools to do that. Knowing the cause and what it does will help you understand them, and why you reacted the way you did.

If you are the one with PTSD and you ended the relationship because you didn't understand it, take the time to understand all you can about it now so that you'll understand why they treated you the way they did, as well as why you treated them the way you did. If they won't talk to you, forgive them and yourself.

Today the featured song is The Beatles, You Won't See Me.
You Won’t See Me
The Beatles

While it may be too late to see them...it is never too late to forgive them or yourself.

Remember, it is your life...get in and drive it!

When I call you up
Your line's engaged
I have had enough
So act your age
We have lost the time
That was so hard to find
And I will lose my mind
If you want see me
(You won't see me)
You won't see me
(You won't see me)
I don't know why you (Ooh-ooh, La la-la)
Should want to hide (Ooh-ooh, La la-la)
But I can't get through (Ooh-ooh, La la-la)
My hands are tied (Ooh-ooh, La la-la)
I won't want to stay (Ooh-ooh, La la-la)
I don't have much to say (Ooh-ooh, La la-la)
But I'd get turned away (Ooh-ooh, La la-la)
And you won't see me
(You won't see me)
You won't see me
Time after time
You refuse to even listen
I wouldn't mind
If I knew what I was missing (no, I wouldn't, no, I wouldn't)
Though the days are few (Ooooh, La la-la)
They're filled with tears (Ooooh, La la-la)
And since I lost you (Ooooh, La la-la)
It feels like years (Ooooh, La la-la)
Yes, it seems so long (Ooooh, La la-la)
Girl, since you've been gone (Ooooh, La la-la)
And I just can' go on (Ooooh, La la-la)
If you want see me
You won't see me
(You won't see me)
Time after time
You refuse to even listen
I wouldn't mind
If I knew what I was missing (no, I wouldn't, no, I wouldn't)
Though the days are few (Ooooh, La la-la)
They're filled with tears (Ooooh, La la-la)
And since I lost you (Ooooh, La la-la)
It feels like years (Ooooh, La la-la)
Yes, it seems so long (Ooooh, La la-la)
Girl, since you've been gone (Ooooh, La la-la)
And I just can' go on (Ooooh, La la-la)
If you won't see me
(You won't see me)
You won't see me
(You won't see me)
Yeah!
Ooooh la la-la
Ooooh la la-la
Ooooh la la-la
