Showcase Topic: Forgiveness and Empathy
It would be amiss if I didn’t talk about how I got there. People don’t want to deal or talk about the heartbreak caused by a break-up. It’s important to heal before you move on.
Allow yourself to feel the hurt. Crying is a cathartic release. When you’ve broken up with someone after a long term relationship,it feels like a death. So you need to grieve the loss by going through the 5 stages of grief denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. Also whatever you do stay away from social media. I would recommend that blocking your ex until you’ve accepted that it’s truly over. If children are involved then it’s important to separate your grief from theirs because the love you have for them won’t change,it’s just the circumstances. Time heals.
Oprah once said when you forgive someone who has hurt you,you’re not doing it for them…you’re doing it for you. You are taking your power and freedom back from all the anger and hurt because holding on to that grudge eats away at peace of mind. If you get an apology from that person then it’s even easier but don’t wait for that because it might never happen. Forgive first so you can move on with your life.
