Happy Magnificent Monday!!
During this month of talking about love, we have defined loved, examine how we love, and how we like to be loved. Today, I want to talk about losing love. During these times, we often feel like our life is over. We will never love again, we are destined to be alone and we simply don’t have the energy to try again, with the possibility of experiencing another loss. Also, during the initial days and months of the lost we l often feel unbalanced, finding it hard to focus, be motivated and even optimistic. It is very tempting to isolate ourselves. So what should we do during these times to help us come out on the other side healthy and healed, instead of bitter and resentful? Reach out to friends. Allow yourself to truly heal – avoid the rebound trap. As humans we do not like to hurt and will try to stop pain at all cause, emotional pain is no different. Thus, it will be real tempting to hop back into another relationship. However, the majority of rebound relationships do not work out. Make sure you continue to do the things you enjoy. Eat well, rest and make the extra effort to notice all that is good and right about your world. Finally, after some time take a moment to evaluate the love you lost. What did you learn about yourself during and after the relationship? What would you like to be different, in the next relationship? Also, was it really that good? Sometimes the memory of something is far better than the real thing. Have a great day and Love a lot today!!!
