Breakup Survival Guide


Breakup Survival Guide
You invested time and energy in this relationship and now it’s over. Now what???

You are also more aware of what would make you happy. You’ve also taken the third step of setting some standards. Now it’s time to make your list. This list is going to have the qualities that you are looking for in your new relationship. List the kinds of things you want to do together, the kind of interaction you want have, anything that you can think of that would make your next relationship perfect.

  • The next time you order steak and you get a hamburger send it back!!! Seriously, if you have followed the steps that I’ve outlined here, you’ve done an awful lot of work. You have taken the time to get to know yourself, to know what you like, to know what you want, to know what will make you happy. When you’re looking at your next prospective partner stop and take a look at your list as well. Is this what you ordered? If it’s not - send it back. I know some of you may be cringing at that thought, but consider: if this was a restaurant meal where you had ordered steak but got the burger would you hesitate to send it back? And what is the worst that could happen if you didn’t? A meal you didn’t enjoy? This is your life we are talking about here! How much more important is it to get the order right?? You are correct order is on its way.
  • Yes, this does involve some work. It will probably involve looking deeper into some things that are not very comfortable. I will promise you this: if you do the work, you will recover from your breakup faster and emerge stronger than ever before. You will also be ready and able to recognize your perfect partner when they arrive.

    I believe that everyone deserves to have loving, supportive relationships. My mission is to help as many people achieve that goal as possible.  For more articles, workshop and coaching options visit here.
