Dating/Relationship Advice: How To Handle An Abrupt Breakup


Moving on in other areas of your life will help with your relationships as well. Think about that job that was so difficult to go to everyday & then due to "so-called" downsizing, you were let go! But in the end they probably did you a favour. How many times has it not worked out for the better?

Change is always fearful even if it is something we are ready for.

Many people become creatures of habit after 40. Just look at your parents. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are the same time everyday & so is the alarm-clock setting. Not unlike the movie Groundhog Day. Life needs some stability and normalcy but it doesn’t have to be a bad movie. Diversity is a wonderful tool to keep you fresh.

The word "NEXT" should have excitement written all over it, and should be embraced into your everyday life with optimism. It is meant to make you grow and become more of who you are at the time. You should never stop learning & growing as a person even as you approach your senior years. (George Burns (RIP) & Betty White are wonderful examples of this.)

Complacency and boredom are the real killers, not old age!

Sometimes Life becomes more of a struggle when we don’t register that something is too much work and all consuming. The reason being; it is truly is not meant to be. When your love is “real” it doesn’t seem like work & there is no drama. Think about this when deciding to “move on” out of a negative place & onto the next path life has in store for you. You don’t have to stay in an unhealthy environment~ it is about learning “how to know” when your time there is up.
