Exposing Old Wounds to Give Love its Best Chance
We rethink all the things that we wish we would've said and done instead of what we did. Even though this is our tendency, it's not a very healthy route. It's just our minds or ego trying to remain attached to suffering. It's keeping us out of the present. When we rethink these things over and over in our minds it can really wear us down physically because our body then thinks that we're experiencing the same thing over and over again.
So try to catch yourself if you fall into the habit of re-analyzing what happened and draw your attention back to what is going on for you right now. Forgiveness is huge. And I don't just mean forgiveness towards the ex, but also towards ourselves.
How Mature Are You?
We have to put forth the effort to forgive and forgive often -- whether we are going through a breakup or not. We have to focus on forgiving constantly. In relation to my previous point about replaying the past, whenever you do find your mind going into a "replay," stop, be present, and then say out loud, "[Name], I forgive you" and then go ahead and say "I forgive myself" as well.
Even if you don't fully mean it percent every time that you do it, just the act of putting forth consistent effort is enough to help begin some shifts. No relationship ever fully ends -- it just changes form. When we go through a divorce or breakup, we find ourselves upset over what we have lost.
In the beginning…
We are upset because what we had in the past we no longer have now and that our dreams for the future are now completely gone. But, it's reassuring to know that no relationship -- at any time -- ever really fully ends. Rather it only changes form.
So even though you are no longer married to your husband, it doesn't mean that you no longer have a relationship with him. It just means that you are no longer married. Just as if you are no longer talking with your ex boyfriend, it doesn't mean that you no longer have a relationship with him. It just means that you are no longer communicating.
Even when someone passes away, it doesn't mean that the relationship has ended. The relationship simply continues to live on in a different form, where it is a bit more of a spiritual connection rather than a physical connection as it was. Like with everything else, this will take time. Assure them that they're first in your heart.
