Getting Hurt By A Man – Elin Nordegren – Tiger’s Ex

I’ll admit I haven’t read the article, but judging from the cover she seems to be saying all the right things. What I do wonder is how she’s keeping herself so “strong.”

If she’s doing it from sheer will alone, in time that won’t last or worse, she’ll become bitter. That’s what makes it so tough when you’re the victim.

You’ve been hurt. Everyone agrees.
You protect yourself however you can.

Then the weeks and months go by and things “calm down.”
If you don’t replace those Coping Skills with something new, bitterness or being guarded sets in.
It’s not that you want that, it’s just once you’ve been hurt, it becomes harder to risk getting burned again.
At least, until you decide that life is short and you’re ready to do whatever it takes to have the relationship you’ve dreamed of since you were little.
Elin, as hard as it might be to believe right now, I promise you, dreams really can come true.

  1. You’ve been hurt. Everyone agrees.

    Yep! I broke up with my ex-girlfriend 4 years ago and until now, I’m still not up to the whole being in a relationship thing coz I don’t wanna risk getting hurt again. I’ve been hurt one too many times, so, I decided that it’s time to take a break from it.

    Definitely, I’ve gotten over my ex-girlfriend but I haven’t moved on from the fact that she cheated. So, yeah, you could say that I’m a bit bitter about it and stuff.

  2. I find this blog to be nothing more than a come on to buy the authors books… not one shred of help is offered.. Fat chance any of us that have been kicked to the curb by a man can find any useable information here.

  3. It’s important to have the correct mindset when dating someone. It’s possible to meet the man of your dreams and have that relationship that you’ve wanted for years, possibly decades, but remember that nobody is perfect. If the relationship that you have in your mind is one where the significant other is “perfect” then that is not achievable. Fix yourself and your own expectations first.
