You may read this title and think, what is she talking about? Well, allow me to post the quote in its entirety: “No one can hurt us emotionally unless we allow the hurt.” How’s that for a revelation? If you’ve been Left at 50 and are still stinging, crying, raging, or hiding you can stop all of that now. (Unless you’re not ready to.) Because if you really sit with this quote and take it in, it will change everything. Your feelings come from you. Sure, they may be in response to an event, but it truly is up to you whether or not you decide to let it upset you to no end.
Because the other choice is, NOT TO ALLOW IT to hurt us emotionally. That mean email from your Ex? Delete it and go buy yourself some flowers, or put on some John Legend and take a bubble bath! How about doing that instead? You no longer have to be hurt unless you choose to feel that way. Think about that! And choose a smile and an emotional stepping away from it. You are stronger now. You can do that. Congrats!
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
