I totally get that you want to get over your heartbreak as soon as possible.
But I’m so glad I simply didn’t get OVER mine, as I had done before.
It was a “through” rather than an “over”
I’m grateful that I followed that inner voice that told me to do things differently.
Because the voice was right.
It was time to stop being my worst critic.
As an act of self-care and self-respect (self-love and self-appreciation were too ambitious words at the time and they only came much later), I chose to do something completely different.
I chose to focus on
getting CLEARER about who I was, and what I wanted.
I focused on REBUILDING my life back.
One brick at a time.
And there is a strength that wasn’t there before because that’s what happens when you do serious “structural, repair and maintenance” work at foundation level.
A fascinating adventure that I highly recommend.
And investment for life.
I want the same for you.
I encourage you to do more than coping with it, “getting over it”. I invite you to do the “inner work”. Because whatever you don’t deal with now will show up again in a later relationship.
You can use this challenging time to rebuild yourself on stronger pillars.
To develop a stronger and steadier you, with a strength that wasn’t there before.
You can do this.
And you are not alone.
