Break-ups are hard.
No one, as far as I can tell,
loves a break-up.
But, just because your
primary relationship is ending
does not mean that
your world has to end.
Endings happen and learning to not only cope, but accept and move on is
essential for your own growth as a human being.
I understand that you may need to learn how to navigate and work through
resentments, built up guilt, shame and anger.
Yes the air needs to be cleared.
But once it has cleared or while its happening, I hope to support you in
asking yourself what is right relationship with this person?
What does that mean?
I believe every person comes into our lives for some reason. We don't
always understand what that reason is at first but if we sit back and ask
we can surely find out.
Part of the reason we don't know what someones role is in our life is because
of our cultures confusion with love, sex and intimacy.
I mean let's face it, sometimes we meet someone and before we know it
we are sleeping with and/or marrying them and perhaps we should of just
been friends or even as simple as a one night stand.
Navigating what the right relationship is for two people can be challenging
but it can be one of the most rewarding things we can do.
If we choose to navigate these (sometimes rocky) waters and stay with our
feelings, express our needs and make conscious choices together, you may
find that this person, in the right relationship to you, can be one of
the most significant people in your life.
I want to help you do that so you experiencing ease, acceptance and understanding
of your (ex) partner.
And I especially want to support you if there are kids involved.
If thats the case, perhaps you want to explore your next steps in a co-parenting plan.
Repair can happen. Trust can be to rebuilt. And you can live a new life
without having to reject the old one.
