    Hi Madeline,
    I had commented on your original question and think I can lend some advice here as well as someone who went through this too. All of the feelings you are having right now are fresh, harsh and hard to get over. All totally normal!
    But during the times you are missing him also look at the way you felt with him in the past few months. You said above you felt always sad and angry and that was WITH him! He wasn’t doing the things you wanted him to do or acting the way you wanted him to act towards you.
    That’s no way to be in a relationship. Relationships are supposed to uplift you, that person is supposed to be your partner. Your partnership wasn’t 50-50. While obviously its natural to miss someone but BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF, he really wasn’t giving you what you wanted. Yes there were good times and you can surely remember those, but in the end you should never let yourself feel the way you did with him. Always wanting more and feeling empty.
    Put your energy in new things, friendships, work and what helped me out the most -working out! I got myself in an awesome workout routine that did wonders for my mind as well as my body. You can do this and once you are honest with yourself it will feel like a big cloud has been lifted. The cloud being someone not giving you want you needed and holding you back.
