Solid mix of all the emotions going on over here. And instead of pushing them down or away I’m allowing myself to have every single one of them fully. Because I know the lesson here is going to be BIG. And I don’t want to miss it.
And btw sadness and grief don’t look one way so I’m letting go of any and all expectations of how I should or shouldn’t feel. And I’m doing what I need to do to keep moving bt also slowing down when I need to. Trial and error, mostly, filled with a ton of grace and inner kindness.
Im proud of myself. And that feels weird to say when I just broke someone I loves heart and turned my whole life upside down...but I am.
THANK YOU for staying with me and for lifting me up. I’ve got this. We’ve got this. And you know I’ve always got you, too. 🖤
Difficult times aren't there to punish us. And this quote above may seem simple, and also quite challenging, because it is almost impossible to stay positive all the time. There is so much pressure these days with the 'self help movement' to have to be positive and happy ALL the time and its just not possible. So to re-interpret this quote, I believe the best thing is to KNOW deep down in those times when you may not feel positive and happy, that this is an evolutionary process, and you are here learning and growing even though its tough. And that beyond the period where you feel like you are falling apart, you are renovating and reconstructing. Being positive doesn't mean you have to be happy, but know that you are growing. #breakuprecovery
Couples tend to have couples friends. Married friends tend to have married friends. So, what happens after divorce? Historically, this is one of the messiest aspects of a post-divorce life. Can you stay friends with the couple who is also staying friends with your ex? Sometimes, you can. Sometimes, you lose those friendships.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After my marriage ended, I lost my friendship with our closest "couple friends" and it broke my heart. Here's what I learned:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. No matter what type of relationship you are in or aren't in, always have girlfriends that aren't necessarily "couple friends" - these are the women who will be your friend no matter your relationship status...it won't have to get messy. And when you are with somebody again, STILL HAVE GIRL TIME! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Not all friendships are forever. We like to think that BFF is a reality, but it's not. Sometimes it is very much worth working through the messiness and finding a new normal; sometimes parting ways is okay. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It really, really sucks to grieve the loss of good friends when you are grieving the loss of your relationship too. If you are feeling lonely, make it a point to get out there and meet some new girlfriends. Networking groups, yoga class, book clubs, etc.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

My one favorite quote that I actually coined and say all the time is showing vulnerability is the deepest way to demonstrate strength. No one, I repeat no one, shows vulnerability deeper and more raw and beautifully then this guy!
Congratulations 🎈🎉🎊 Just ordered.
If you're going through a breakup, friendship/relationship. It's okay to miss them but If they've been toxic to your life and your mental health, you need to let them go. It won't be easy but eventually you'll get over them and be back to your normal self or even happier than you were before they came into your life. I hope you find the strength to out powers your overthinking and finally heal from the mental and emotional abuse you've been put through. You're a good person and you didn't deserve that type of pain.
Shoot. I been cryin nearly every day, but it ain’t stop me from landing this new position with a staff of 12. It ain’t stop me from showing up for traumatized girls every day as a positive role model. It ain’t stop me from being a strong mother who always puts my sons’ needs first. They rarely see me in tears. I don’t have hope of things changing with my recent ex, but I have hope things will keep looking up for me. Ase. #breakups #tears #lettinggo #lettingGod #repost @thecrimsonkiss
