However on the other side you did say that you were praying and you thought you heard God tell you be patient.Many times our relationship with God is one sided, think of the scripture "Husband's love thy wife as Jesus loves the church.I know it is difficult to understand why God would allow you to have such strong feelings for someone who does not reciprocate those feelings, but He does. Some new kind of relationship has to come out of it, one that accepts the whole history.This new paradigm thanks God for the good and trusts Him to bring glory out of the bad.And it makes you feel awful when they start dating someone new.So I would say guard your heart and take the time to heal.I go to the dog park six days a week, do my errands, go to my daughter's house now and then, and go to family celebrations. But I want to close myself off so much that I'm thinking that agoraphobia is creeping in on me and it's going to get worse if I don't do something.
I was once in a relationship very similar with an ex.
I would not be with the wonderful man I am now if i had held on hope for my ex which I did for a while. It is possible that this may actually be God's wish for you two to remain separate and find other people to fall in love with and be equally as happy with.
I thought that relationship was good, but the one i'm in now is so much better and i'm extremely greatful that my ex is an ex. Breaking up hurts and you pray for a chance to make things back to the way they were but there is a possibility that this will never occur.
God has given His life because of His love for you.
A million failed relationships, much less a couple, will never speak one word about your worth in the love department.
