The way you signed your letter makes me wonder if you still love this guy ( I hate to love him). You also speak about his replacing you with a girl you hated, which wouldn’t bother you if you didn’t still care.It isn’t clear whether you want to get over loving him, or whether you want to get over the pain that still haunts you from that relationship. You need to be clear.In any case, since you want to get over this guy, I think you need to focus on how mistreated you were by him. And, it sounds to me like you never had the chance to tell him so. Perhaps this is a good place to start. And, I think that your depression and grieving would lift if you told him what you think of his behavior. You write him and letter, and the purpose of this letter is not to make him feel sorry for you, but to give him hell for what he did through a series of observations.Such as, your behavior was terrible, you were verbally and emotionally abusive and cruel. Laughing at someone’s tears is evil. He acts like he never knew you, like a hit and run artist. You could tell him that there is a label for the problem he has–sociopathy–. You could tell him that a sociopath has no conscience or consideration for other people’s feelings. They usually wind up as criminals of one sort or another.By getting the poison off your chest, you should begin to heal.Also, another place to search. When we can’t let go of a wound, oftentimes, we are unconsciously reminded of core hurts from childhood. So, whenever you find yourself unable to let go of a feeling, if a feeling haunts you more than one day, look into your history for parallels. When you find out what old hurt the current hurt has rekindled, oftentimes the mind can lay the current hurt to rest.Good luck. Let me know how you make out.
