Bruce Fisher, author of Rebuilding When Your Relationship Ends, shares six ways you can heal and move on to the next chapter in your life.
- Accept the fact that it’s normal or typical to have emotional reactions to the ending of a relationship. They’ve probably been there all along (in your relationship) and are simply intensified during and after the divorce process — especially during the holiday season!
- Acknowledge that just because your marriage is over, it doesn’t mean you’re inadequate, inferior or there’s something wrong with you. Give yourself a break.
- Work on self-love. You are a worthwhile person who doesn’t have to let the end of your love relationship define your self-worth. No person can complete you.
- Discover that relationships are our teachers Accept that feeling rejected is an expected part of the ending of a marriage or intimate relationship and it takes time to heal.
- Stay open to new experiences, hobbies, or interests that you couldn’t pursue with your partner. Make it a point to try a new hobby or experience twice yearly.
- Cultivate supportive relationships. Being with people who accept and support you can help ease the feeling of rejection. Get energized by the possibilities ahead for you.
You are enough and deserve to give and receive love.
