So it turns out me being a crying crazy mess over the heartbreak of my engagement breaking down isn’t an abnormal thing at all, in fact it’s perfectly explicable through the psychology of grievance. Who’d have thought it! Another glass of wine and a tub of Haagen Dazs to celebrate perhaps?
What stage are you at? How long did it take you to reach acceptance?

The word you’re looking for here is “Grief” not “Grievance”. Next time, maybe grab a dictionary before using big words.
Hi Alex many thanks for your comment, I enjoy eating my dictionary for breakfast every morning as well as the occasional nine letter word. I used the noun “Grievance” to elaborate on the hurt and distress caused by and during a breakup.
a wrong considered as grounds for complaint, or something believed to cause distress: Inequitable taxation is the chief grievance.
a complaint or resentment, as against an unjust or unfair act: to have a grievance against someone.
1250–1300; Middle English greva ( u ) nce < Old French grevance. See grieve, -ance Related forms pre·griev·ance, noun Synonyms 1. affront, injustice, hurt, injury, distress.
I loved this, I went through the first 6 all at once, miss my home and my son so much 🙁 Ah
Hi Sean, I’m so sorry to hear that, I’m sure your son realises what a wonderful father he has and over time it does get easier, even though it breaks your heart now it will one day be okay again. Keep your chin up x
