I recently broke it off with a girl I have had as a long term plate/LTR of sorts. I will be honest it was not easy. The sex was the best I've had and she had an adventurous personalty which matched mine. The past month leading up to this I was in a rut and unsatisfied with my progress. I am currently working as an engineer and have been feeling it is holding back my SMV. I began to obsess about what I can do to satisfy my ambition. It caused me to fall into a low energy state and get bogged down.
Don't Open Up or Express Turmoil
Knowing better but wanting the warm fuzzy feeling of having someone be there for me, I made the mistake of turning to my LTR. I opened up to her about my internal struggle and some of the things I wanted to work on and change. Guess what? Two weeks later she is fucking some hippy bartender. I know the laws, but it was a wakeup call that women will not respect your struggle, even when it is the slightest. Instead they will do the opposite and take advantage of you showing your weaknesses. Don't go to women for support, turn to your male friends instead.
You will hear people say "Be Vulnerable" this does not mean open up and show a women your soft side. Being vulnerable to the RedPill means taking chances and facing rejection and turmoil, not hiding from it. A women will never understand your ambition and drive. They don't need to get better or improve themselves "not until they reach the wall anyways". There is no benefit in confiding in them for advice on the matter.
TD;LR Work through your struggles on your own or with other men. Do not confide in women even if they are close to you.
