I am occupying too much of my friends time talking about my divorce.
Often people feel that they are burdening their friends and family by talking too much and too often about their separation. In a group you have a safe place to talk with others who are happy to listen.
I feel like I am falling through a chasm.
When you separate it is hard to see that there will ever be a time when you will feel better. In a group you will feel less alone and isolated, and begin to understand that you will not feel like this forever.
I still feel very hurt and unable to move on.
