As we self-isolate under a common-sense mandate, there will be pluses and minuses. But we Leftat50’s have a stronger Immune to Hurt System than others.
When our relationships were ending, we had no choice but to figure out how to guard our emotional selves against a hurt we knew would only peak before it waned.
Those of us who have come out the other side of that bell curve also now are the proud owners of an unflinching ability to react to sudden life changes with a Wise Woman construct.
This self-knowledge that we can survive catastrophic life rearranging will be our saving grace as this entire world shifts to a future unknown perspective on daily life.
We had to find our own kind of vaccination. Against the painful life event where we also had to continue on with the rest of our day-to-day. We had to function at whatever peak we could muster during those dark days, or months or years that precipitated the end of our relationships.
Now facing the end of life as we have always known it, remember to hold onto the wisdom gained as a result of making it through. Because we did that, we know we will make it through yet another life-altering event that is out of our control at this time.
Heed the wisdom that I know is coming to you now. We Leftat50’s are the survivors of mid-life mayhem. Inside of us is unlimited knowledge of both ourselves and others. As women we always nurture others. On instinct, we do whatever is needed. These are the days in which we all currently reside.
Having already vaccinated ourselves against an ultimate hurt, we are not only immune to massive change, but we are also stronger than most for having resilience that is an unending resource upon which to draw from at this difficult time.
It is not just the Flu Season and the Corona Virus Season. It is the You Season. Maybe not the one you were expecting, but definitely the one each one of us must grow into.
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!)?
