Breaking up is a hard time for all people involved, especially when it comes as a surprise, after a long marriage or when children are involved. Your emotions can become overwhelming and, at times, crippling.
You might not feel like venturing into the world, or you may feel like inflicting the worst kind of pain on your ex and watching them suffer. STOP! Stop wasting your time and energy dwelling on the past. DON’T GET EVEN…Get PROACTIVE!
Channel your anger, frustration, grief, sadness and depression into motivation, enthusiasm and organisation! Gather your ex-spouse’s belongings and put them into a bag - “out of sight, out of mind”
Use your upset to exercise, wear a new hair-style or update the wardrobe - “look confident, feel confident.”
Gather all of the required paperwork, documentation, certificates and statements … Put them into a well co-ordinated file or folder - “organisation is key to success”
You choose your attitude and your perception. You can either choose to be bitter or choose to accept - “The choice is yours.”
Journaling can help to process and make sense of your thoughts and feelings. No one needs to read it – let your feelings flow.
Being aware and conscious of speaking in the positive, project ourselves with gratitude and happiness and telling our stories without fear, resentment or regret, will help the transition from one life phase to a new brighter life chapter.
“It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters” – Epictetus
You can choose to step up and step into life with a smile. When you look for the good in the world, you will be amazed at how great life really is. Rise above the negativity – you know you can.
See how good you will feel.
