Breaking up is never easy.
We experience all kinds of emotions – grief, anger, sadness, guilt, shame.
We sometimes begin to doubt ourselves and question our abilities. Perhaps wondering if we’re truly lovable. Or if we are capable of the kind of loving, satisfying, long-term relationship that we want.
I know I experienced all of these responses.
Especially after I’d become a therapist, I felt that perhaps I’d failed for having my relationship end.
Of course, that’s not how it works. No relationship is ever a ‘failure’, they’re all an opportunity for us to learn and grow.
I’ve also agonised over whether I was making the right decision. Last week, we shared the questions you need to ask yourself before you decide to break up with someone. If you’re still in the process of deciding whether breaking up is the right thing for you, I highly recommend you listen to this episode.
We wanted to follow on this week with how you nurture, love and support yourself if that’s what ends up happening.
If you’re going through a break up right now, or have recently been through one, we want you to know, we see you and we feel you.
We’ve been there too.
And we know it’s one of the most painful journeys you can go through.
It doesn’t matter how long you were with someone, sometimes break ups affect us deeply.
In this episode, Bec and I share our own personal stories and the things that we know can get you through.
- The 3 things that got me through the hardest break up of my life
- Why the pain you might feel isn’t just in your head
- How long it ‘should’ take you to recover
- The vital role forgiveness plays in moving forward
- How to tell when it’s the right time to start dating again
Listen to the episode:
Trust us when we say that something even more perfect for you is ahead.
You deserve great love.
And remember, that it’s okay to get support too. If you need someone to talk to about your break up, reach out to me here.
Sending love to your precious heart,
