When the rug gets pulled out from under you and you find yourself Back At Square One, it’s hard. Finding yourself uncoupled and adding in that you’ve now got some years under your belt, life looks different. You’re not the Spring Chicken you once were. And it can all feel unmanageable.
I understand. I’ve been there. And if I can make it through, so can you!
This post is about just YOU. Not about the STBX or ex, nor the kids, nor the other family members or friends. No, today we’re concentrating on strengthening you. You deserve a little TLC and time, so carve it out. Whether it’s taking a long car ride for peace and quiet or waking up earlier than normal while all the others are sleeping.
This is your new routine. “Me time” in whatever manner you find it because we need some quiet time.
It’s hard to start over, especially when you and the playing field are different than you remember. Back in the day, the dating pool was deep because we didn’t have baggage and a lifetime of wounds and they (the potential partners) didn’t either. Add in that we’re not as young and naive anymore and there’s a different vibe to Square One and starting over.
So what’s on our side now? Wisdom. Experience. Hopefulness in starting over. Energy in making our own decisions. Tenacity in feeling confident in who we are and not being afraid to be us.
But what if we’re lacking the self-confidence? We’re still wounded by the past? We’re in the midst of upheaval? We’re frightened? We’ve lost hope?
You’re here so that’s a start. Now let’s clear the blockages and get ready for the next chapter!
Are you in? It can’t hurt to try!
