Dating someone going through a messy divorce

Now, she’s rebounding and going through the good phase of the cycle, now, she’s medicated, it’s going to be a lot for me to break that promise to myself and remain with her.

I don’t feel guilty about wanting to divorce and I’m not even angry with her.

I made a decision to never be vulnerable to her, never be intimate, because she’s taken a lot of things that she’s known about me and the closeness and it’s hurt me in her bipolar episodes.

That was the one thing I could do was not let her be any closer.

Now that she’s better again or trying to be or whatever you want to call it, I can’t release and trust her again, because if she does hurt me again, I won’t have anything to pick myself up with. No matter what she does, I have that promise to myself.
