My husband is moving out at the end of the month, and I suddenly realized
that I'll soon be single. The last thing I need is to jump into a relation-
ship, and yet after years of living in a desert, I feel so starved and
dehydrated that it's all I want. I understand that I need to give myself
time to be alone and nurture myself, yet I have no idea how to do that.
There's a man that I'm attracted to, and the urge to give myself away to
him feels unbearable. Not sexually, but in every other way. I've always put
a man first, and myself last.
Does anyone have any insight as to how one can accept/understand the
hunger and the longing? I'm as busy as I want to be....I have two children and a successful business, and maybe this ache is a universal one. I'm afraid
to think that it'll take a harmonious relationship to fill it, because I know
there are no guarantees. I could very well be on my own for a while.
