03 Jan I thought we were breaking up
“This isn’t working for me” I said to him. “Agreed” was his response.
I was devastated. It felt distant between us. Disconnected. I’d poured my heart into this relationship.
I know sometimes it gets really rough. Even in the midst of that pain you can find happiness. It comes down to how you take care of yourself.
It’s imperative that you learn how to how to weather the storms of life effectively, feeling good even as things are breaking down around you. Maybe it’s tension at work or difficulty finding a better job. It could be stress around money. Perhaps its a breakdown in a relationship or friendship. No matter what is happening, you have the power to SHIFT how you feel.
Self-care is about making you the TOP PRIORITY in your life. In doing this, you make it possible to readily master your emotions and the ups and downs of life. Among the chaos of the relationship, I found peace while out hiking. Despite the pain I was feeling, I connected with calmness as I gazed out at the ocean. I took all of that in and allowed it to fill me with so much love.
How would your life change if you were able to experience peace despite the pain?
This may have been what saved our relationship. My ability to take care of myself gave me the opportunity to approach this breakdown in our relationship with openness and vulnerability. An awareness and recognition that no matter what happened between us, I would be okay.
It’s absolutely possible to feel happy despite external circumstances. Imagine being able to feel peace no matter what is happening around you. What would that do for you?
