Who has understood love – ever? How do you deal with the pain of lost love? I feel lost, shattered and broken at the moment. With the love of my life missing, I am beginning to question my existence and the purpose to live life any further. I feel nobody understands me and if they do, they don’t care. I don’t feel like working, going out or even getting off my bed. I want to be alone and I want to cry all the time. My daily chores are a task as I see the image of him everywhere. I cannot lose sight of his existence around me even for a few minutes. I often get up in the middle of my sleep and daze at the ceiling, wondering what really happened and how did I land into this mess.
It all started as I met this special someone two years back. He entered my life as a friend but soon blew me off my feet in the first few meetings we had. The romance was great and we hung out like great pals. We loved each other and were eager to meet the moment we left sight of each other. We had the same interests, enjoyed doing things together, understood each other, even completed each other’s sentences. Then, a year and a half into our relationship, he vanished, literally, into thin air. He left his job, and he no longer stays in the same town. He stopped taking my calls. I just haven’t been able to get over this. How could he have done this to me and to our relationship? If he wanted to end it he should have told me so. I really don’t know what went wrong. Is there something wrong with me? I’m just left wondering and can’t seem to let it go. I just keep thinking all day what could have driven him away. I have questions but no answers
I found Atika after looking at some recommendations online. Even though I came to see Atika with a lot of hesitation but once I started talking she made me feel really comfortable. She didn’t rush me into anything and just let me unload my thoughts through the sessions. After my first session itself, I felt as if a heavy weight has been lifted off my chest. I wanted to get over my present situation and met her again. Through counselling, she motivated me to get a psychiatric assessment and I started medication for depression. We continued counselling in the meanwhile, which brought me the closure that I needed and helped to cope better. Thanks, Atika!
