Before we get started, I’d like to you to think about what a break up really is?
Devastating, yes. But it’s also one of the greatest opportunities you will ever have.
Yes, breakups are hard and hurt like hell but that’s what makes them so effective.
It’s important to understand how getting over an ex is a process… and not a destination.
And it’s during this process where YOU get decide… what next?
As Rocky Balboa rightly says: “It ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward”. Try to remember that.
In this guide I’m going to run through what you need to know to get through this the best way possible.
Here’s a list of the chapters I’ll be covering:
It’s all to do with investment.
Relationships, regardless of whether it’s a friendship, career, hobby, partner or pet – bottom line is if something we’ve invested a lot of time and emotion in is taken away from us, we’re gonna feel like sh*t!
When you break up with somebody who played a central role in your life, you’re essentially missing a piece of your identity.
Just like if your pet dog died or you were suddenly made redundant from a job you loved…
It’s only natural to feel lost and empty.
Start filling that void.
And no I don’t mean go out and buy a new dog or get a new missus.
While the “fastest way to get over someone is to get under” theory works for many, I personally think the key is to fill your void with goals and challenges.
Rebounds are almost always built on weak foundations, so while you may temporarily be masking the pain, you’re not really doing yourself any favours long term.
<em>Note: Having sex is fine, recommended and well, (f*cking) great – just don’t try to invest any emotions too soon as you’re not ready.</em>
If you’re looking to get the best out of the breakup, learn to love yourself like you loved your ex.
So, set some new goals and challenges and start working on them. Use the pain as motivation.
And before you know it, you’ll see why the breakup was the best thing that ever happened to you.
