I have read a few articles about how the digital world provides no room for closure. Social media posts, including photos of prior significant others, can leave traces of a prior life. Notable celebrities are consistently under the public microscope, and break-ups are always newsworthy. Imagine how hard it is for them to deal with reporters who pry into their lives.
It doesn’t have to be this way. People either come into your life as blessings or as lessons. You have the power to choose how you separate, whether you take the high road or not. Note that I didn’t say that your ex-partner will chose this route. Still, remember that you are most admired when you chose to beam sunshine after a storm. Here are a few pointers on how to cope and heal:
- Celebrate the good and move on from the bad
- Be humbled from the experience but be hopeful of the future
- You will be remembered for your beauty but from your beautiful soul
- The universe will embrace you when you live in a world of joy
- Forgive yourself and forgive others in their transgressions in order to remove any shackles and break the chains. Free up your energy to learn and grow.
Life is a “do-it-yourself” project, and your happiness must come from within. As trite as the expression may be, turn a lemon into lemonade and use social media to your advantage. Use Facebook, Twitter, and other social media to tell the world that you are celebrating a new chapter in your life and MEAN IT! You’ll be surprised how many people quickly rally in your support and include you in new activities. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and with the right attitude, I can assure you that it’s not a freight train. Read Dating for Life and I think you’ll agree.
