Packing up your home and moving into a new one can be daunting. There is often so much to do, and knowing where to begin can be difficult. Hopefully these tips will help make the move less stressful.
January is the month of the year when the most amount of divorces are processed and relationships breakdown. However, leaving an ex behind is not as easy as it looks – even if you are the one who has decided to leave. It is inevitable that anger, guilt, jealousy and sadness will ensue. Some hold onto these emotions for years.
Many people living in a bad relationship often find themselves daydreaming of being single and I was no different. And now that I am, is my new life what I envisioned it to be? Well, almost, and in a moment I’ll tell you why. However, as you read, please bear in mind that what I’ve written is my perspective based on my experience.
When I was going through my divorce and breakups. I always used quotes to get me through; they were like mantras for me that I used when I found myself how bad I felt. By using a quote (a.k.a a mantra) it broke with my usual thought pattern and helped me get through the darkest moments. Below are some of the break up quotes that got me through in the hope that they can help you too.
When married we look forward in anticipation of sharing major life events as life partners – birthdays, anniversaries, Christmases, weddings, graduations… We don’t anticipate finding ourselves suddenly cast adrift from everything that we hold dear, our spouse, our family, our home. The pain of separation and divorce is devastating and its aftershocks can reverberate for a long time across our lives and relationships.
That is a question that we may over the coming months find real answers to - the hard way. With the full force of redundancies throughout the UK yet to be felt, and despite the claims that already financially-stretched couples will not be able to ‘afford’ to get a divorce, we could be seeing a real link between income shifts and people leaving their relationships to go it alone.
Divorce is a major life change that can leave a person reeling. Suddenly being on your own to deal with issues such as money, children, career changes and downsizing the family home can seem overwhelming. Dr. Phil and Libby Gill, author of the book Traveling Hopefully: How to Lose Your Family Baggage and Jumpstart Your Life offer advice on how to begin to live life after divorce.
“I feel so guilty I had the affair,” She said. “I really wish I hadn’t, I don’t even know why I did it. What was I thinking?”
This is a very typical response from women who I have coached, who are living with (what I now call) affair guilt. If you are a woman who has cheated on her husband or boyfriend and are now dealing with the destructive aftermath of the affair and are feeling extremely guilty, I empathize. I like you have been where you are and it’s a difficult place to get out of, if you don’t know how.
