When you entered "that" relationship - you didn't do it thinking that you'd be single again... So when your marriage or long term relationship did finally end, whether by your decision or not, it hurts. The longer the relationship was, the more it can hurt.
For some, you never saw it coming. It caught you totally by surprise. Perhaps an illness snuck up on your loved one. Perhaps your loved one left without saying goodbye. Either way it sucks the wind out of you and you feel like every breath is a chore.
For others of us, becoming single again was an obvious conclusion to an unhappy relationship... never the less, we're always surprised that it still hurts when it finally happens.
Over the next few weeks, we're going to explore the different "Stages of Single" and share the best tips and advise those of us who are a little further down the path have to offer. We'll remind you to keep breathing, and share with you the silver lining in what seems to be a very dark cloud.
This is Stage One - Single is Simple... and simple is good.
(daaayyuummm that feels like a dark conversation... but worry not - we'll find something totally morbid and horrible to laugh about as always.) Lol.
See you all at the next one!
