Your relationship is over. You've had that awkward conversation, you got a text to say "it's not you, it's me" or worse yet, you've been ghosted. Either way, the connection you had with that special someone - be it 2 weeks, 2 months or 20 years, has finally come to an end.
Turning to our loved ones is a natural first step. They say things to you like, "I never liked him anyway" or "there's way more fish in the sea"... things that are definitely well-meaning but do nothing to ease the emotional 3-ring circus that's going on in your head and heart.
So remember this - let your emotions out.
Don't let anyone tell you to just be positive. You can't be positive 100% of the time. Ever encountered anyone who's positive ALL the time? When I do, I always wonder what happens when they stub their little toe. There's a lot of noise out there that says we need to wash everything in love and light. Yes but no. See, when that happens, we're not allowing ourselves to be human. To be human means to run the full gamut of emotions - highs, lows & in-betweens.
On a farm, if it rains 100% of the time, the crops get flooded - the harvest is ruined. If it's sunny 100% of the time, the crops dry out - the harvest is ruined once more. The crops need a balance of the sun and rain to ensure a bountiful harvest. Just as the crops need a balance, we too need a balance.
Ignoring our "dark' side means you ignore opportunities for growth and learning. Feelings & emotions are neither 'bad' or 'good' - they're what they are. Find a way that works for you to let all your emotions out of your system.
