Firstly, therapys always good at helping people unravel their thought processes and may guide you to what you actually miss.
Secondly, self improvement is really healthy on the mind and body.
Thirdly, try new hobbies, relentlessly go out try new things and socialize. BUT DONT SOCIALIZE TO GET GIRLS. Go and enjoy the world and all it has to offer. There are so many dope people out there!
Sounds like for the past 10+ years you’ve been living in the past. Get a new hobby,work on yourself, meet new people, and stop comparing every girl you meet to the ex you had over a decade ago. Learn to appreciate what you had and accept people for what they are.
