Ask A Therapist OnlineGambling, lies and a broken heart
Anonymous asked

I was dating a guy that turned out to be addicted to gambling, it turned out our 2 1/2 year relationship was all lies and he turned mean. I now have a broken heart and a lot of debt, and I moved away from everyone to be with him. I feel so much hurt and anger and I’m not sure how to deal with it.

The ending of a relationship is a significant change in anyone’s life. Without appropriate processing, residual feelings can still be present which can influence your quality of life. By being able to self-soothe through stress and anxiety management, personal growth can occur. I would suggest meeting with one of our counselors to help support you as an individual during this process.
