I’ve always been told beyond all else “follow your gut instincts” its always right.
So my heart says “I love him”
My head says “this has happened before, no contact, hes moved on then come back. Try and find a way forward”.
My gut says “he loves you and needs time, wait”.
So what do I follow?
Issue being for two years I ignored my gut that said the same thing. Put myself through pain. Listened to what others thought I should do.
Above all that stands out is that we discussed so much. I didn’t tell him I still loved him. I held back. Until the day he told me he does love me, realised he always has. How he needed to right the wrongs he’s made, so he can be the man I respect. He asked me to give him time. That I am the love of his life. My children are his how he loves and missed them. And followed it all up with his actions
Now I have the grand decision of head heart or gut.
