I am recently divorced, and found the only way I could get enough courage to leave my X, was to get involved with someone else. I've been seeing this other person for about 3yrs., but he recently has told me he needs space. He has his own place, but has basically been living at mine, the majority of the time. I am confused and frightend to be alone. I've always felt this way. How do I learn to accept being by myself and know it's okay to be alone. It's very painful for me.
