Dating after marriage breakup
I thought we were going to spend our lives together, but the gods of love had other plans.
After I’d grieved in healthy (and not-so-healthy ways) I knew I could take two paths: stay stuck in my misery or pick myself up, dust off my sadness, and make a plan to move on.
Relationships can have a pull on us long after they’re over.
Relationship Counselling can help you talk over your thoughts with someone who doesn’t know you or your ex and won’t judge anything you say.
But this kind of thinking will only make you feel bitter, regretful and has a tendency to go in circles.
Although it isn’t always easy, it’s much more useful to focus objectively on what the relationship was lacking and how it failed to meet your or your partner’s needs.
Likewise, unresolved issues can make it difficult to accept that the relationship has ended at all.
Clients often tell our counsellors that they feel stuck going over and over what happened in their last relationship and that makes it feel impossible to move on.
