Happiness is not guaranteed unless we act on what would lead us to it. But what if in the back of our minds that goal is on idle? Why is this happening? I have a theory based on my own experience.
Erratic emotions were once a normal part of my days. But I came to find a balance when I learned how to gently tamp down those flames. For my sanity, I had to. I think we all do.
As we go on in life this once rabid bonfire recedes into the distance. Ultimately, we barely remember it. All of that anger from the betrayal goes, poof! The fire is out. For good.
Why does this miracle happen? Because we are long free of that awful, loveless union. We excitedly greet the day as our authentic selves.
We know for a fact that if we hadn’t been cheated on and left, we never would have walked into our new life.
This interesting involved woman who always lived inside us has come to the forefront. Maybe she loves art, poetry, rap or surfing! Or gardening or traveling or tea ceremonies. Or dogs, cats, or butterfly houses. Overalls or dresses. Sensible shoes or the highest heels ever.
We are opting out of self-criticism and sadness and into culture, fun, tasty foods, and all the love we know we deserve to give ourselves.
If you or someone you know has opted out of happiness due to hurt, self-judgment, and the sabotage that is visited when first left, lend her a hand. Send flowers. Make that call. Reach out. All of us are here waiting for you to step into the field of daisies and get on with life! Opt-in. I promise there’s no spam!
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.
