When he pours his heart out on the phone and via email, it just brings me hope.  I *am* detaching my love for him, I am making an effort to distance myself from him emotionally.  I see my codependence as something that will  only hurt me, hurt all of us.

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it’s yours to keep. If it does not come back, it was not meant to be.
