I can't let go of him

It has been 15 months since my boyfriend and I broke up, but I’m struggling to let go. He says he doesn’t love me anymore but when we talk, he always mentions the good times we had together. When I tell him how much I miss being with him, he says that life goes on and that I will find someone else. How do I let go of the man I love? ANONYMOUS, KWA-MHLANGA

Answer: Keep a distance from him so that you can heal. Tell him you would like to be out of touch with him for a while, and create new memories for yourself. This will keep you from being depressed, which can make you feel so lonely that you end up going back to the man who says he doesn’t love you anymore.
