Recovering from a breakup and feeling down in the dumps? Dwelling in regret?
These are the times when we show up for ourselves and show what we are made of. I know from so much personal experience that it is so easy to get caught up in resentment or beating yourself up for things that happened in the past. When I left my abuser I felt that I owed it to myself to stay miserable because of how much drama I had faced. I know it is hard to understand, but there was a part of me that wasn’t ready to let go simply because I wanted to validate my pain in that way.
As hard as you might try, a breakup can find you in the MUCK. So I’m not saying that you have to turn things around overnight and start changing the world or your life. I am saying that framing things in the way that you will show yourself how strong you can be is a great way to build a strong foundation for long-term breakup success.
Recovering from a breakup starts with telling yourself that you WILL recover. Next, think of how you want to look back on this time a year from now.
Grieving can still be done while thinking about doing things for your future self. I can say from experience that this is something I *didn’t* do several years back and that it led to a lot of spiraling and misery.
You’ve got this! And if you want more support, I’ve got your back! Hit me up.
