Yoooo first of all, my personal opinion ahh is that so long as your fwb and nsa are consensual and legal, it’s not sth wrong, so don’t need to be hard on yourself for that okie!
When it comes to relationship, the number one thing is always gonna be loving yourself. It works the same with all relationships, parents/family/friends/life partners/etcetc. I truly believe only when we love ourselves, do we have the capacity to love others and for others to love us for who we are. Otherwise the other ppl in our lives won’t be able to appreciate the real us, so the relationships will always seem to fail :frowning:
Exploring your own strengths, identifying what you enjoy, loving your own qualities both good and bad, reflecting on your actions and learning to be better version of yourself each day. these are ways I learn to love myself more and more.
Would you considering working on these? I know it’s hard, but at least it warrants some results that will be yours to keep and won’t be easily taken away from you~ :people_hugging:

Dear @Hersha1414

Thank you for coming onto this platform and sharing with us about your hurt. It sounds like you’ve been through some painful experiences and it’s natural to seek solace in various ways during such moments of difficulty. Coping with rejection is never easy. Sometimes, casual relationships like friends-with-benefits (FWB) or no-strings-attached (NSA) arrangements may seem like a solution, yet they often fail to offer the emotional support or healing we truly seek.

Such relationships can sometimes lead to feelings of emptiness or exacerbate emotional pain, particularly when they don’t fulfill our deeper needs for genuine connection and stability. Our need for connection and stability is biological; it requires time and energy to cultivate the skills needed to have deeper and more meaningful connections with others.

I invite you to consider the following for your next steps as you navigate through these challenges:

Reflect and Identify Needs: Take some time to reflect on what you truly need in terms of emotional support and connection. Identify your deeper needs and desires beyond temporary comfort.

Establish Healthy Boundaries: Evaluate your current relationships, including FWB or NSA arrangements, and set clear boundaries that align with your emotional well-being and values.

Engage in Self-Care: Invest time and effort in self-care activities that nurture your mental, emotional, and physical health. This could include exercise, hobbies, mindfulness practices, or spending time with supportive friends and family.

Practice Self-Compassion: Be kind and compassionate towards yourself. Acknowledge that it’s okay to make mistakes and experience challenges. Treat yourself with the same kindness and understanding you would offer to a friend in a similar situation.

Seek Professional Support: Consider reaching out to a counsellor or mental health professional who can provide you with guidance, tools, and coping strategies to navigate your emotions and relationships more effectively.

Taking proactive steps towards self-awareness, seeking support, and nurturing healthy relationships can contribute to your overall well-being and emotional fulfillment. You deserve to build a life that brings you joy, satisfaction, and genuine connections.

Please take care of yourself and I hope you will prioritise your emotional health too.

Wishing you the very best. :smiley:

Kind regards,
Cool Breeze =)
