Talking About How You Feel
Relationships can have a pull on us long after they’re over. It can be difficult to accept that something that was once such a big part of your life is now a becoming a memory and our partner like a stranger. Likewise, unresolved issues can make it difficult to accept that the relationship has ended at all.
People often tell us that they they feel ‘stuck’ going over and over what happened. Seemingly making it feel impossible to move on. This is often made more difficult by social media. Simply logging on is a constant reminder and seeing updates or photos from your ex can leave you heartbroken all over again
Whatever the circumstances, it is natural to feel a sense of loss or grief. Perhaps you had hopes and dreams about what the relationship might have been – even if you were the one who wanted to move on. These strong emotions can be obstacles in helping you move on and face the future after separation or divorce.
One of the hardest things to let go of following the end of a relationship is sometimes anger and blame. Endlessly questioning who did what, what could have been done differently and who ended up feeling worse. But this kind of thinking will only make you feel bitter and regretful. Resulting in you going round in circles. Professional breakup therapy can help you avoid that.
