Being in love is a wonderful feeling. When we begin dating someone and we recognize the possibility for love exists we feel like we are walking on air. We feel beautiful, happy and expanded. When our relationships end, we can feel broken, lonely, and even depressed. Life happens, relationships end and our joy comes crashing down, along with our tears and often anger.
- Find ways to nurture yourself every day. Take a walk, exercise, visit a friend.
- Journal. Writing about how you feel in the present and what caused you to break up, can help you remember and recognize the unhealthy aspects of the past relationship. You may also get some insights into the reason you attracted them in the first place. Journaling connects you to your higher self, and opens you to receiving messages from the Universal Mind. You will be surprised at what you end up writing when you don't really think about it.
- Have some fun. Do what you love. Find ways to express yourself fully that bring you joy. You have probably given up different aspects of yourself for the old relationship. It is time to reconnect with friends, do crafty things, or paint that piece of furniture you have been meaning to for years.
- Take a class. Learning can bring you a new lease on life. It expands you and turns your thoughts to something different. Use this time to do the things you have been wanting to do.
- Travel to new destinations. Remember the museum or art gallery you have been meaning to see? Now is the time to do those things you have put off.
- Live in the moment. Be spontaneous. Do what you love. If your relationship was an unhealthy one, it is time to get back to some healthy living or activities that bring you joy, make you feel good and affirm your worth.
- Join a team. Playing a sport like softball, bowling or an activity club can give you something to do when you normally would be spending time with your significant other. An activity can open you up to new friendships and focus on fun rather than the loss.
- Allow yourself to feel the sadness. Grieve fully. There will be times you have to cry. Let yourself experience these feelings. Stuffing them will cause you health issues down the road. Grieving is a natural part of a break-up. Give yourself the time you need to heal.
- Be Alone. Allow yourself the time to heal, rather than jump into dating immediately. If you have not healed the issues that caused the break-up, you will attract another person with a different face, but feel like it is the same relationship.
- Take my Love Yourself Fearlessly Group coaching program. Spending time getting to know yourself, what you want, desire and fall in love with you. When you love and accept yourself fully, you will attract a healthy, balanced love, rather than one focused on need, lack or limitation. Coming into a relationship feeling whole raises the bar. A relationship with a foundation of self love and acceptance will not draw abuse, cheating or lying the way codependence does.
