If you are suffering from the effects of a relationship split and want to know how to cope with a break-up then this may help you.Â At the end of this piece I have a quick tip on how to control your feelings.
Most break-ups happen due to confusion of what the individuals are feeling and what it really means. They feel bad, attach those feelings to the relationships and so the relationship dies.
Many people who have asked for a divorce have regretted it later, because the feeling they attach to the relationships goes away when they are apart, and they are left with no good reason to be apart, unfortunately most of the time itâ€™s too late.
Understanding your break-up
Those that come to me through coaching on how to cope with break-ups, get to understand in detail, why their break-up happened and this helps them to understand if the break-up happened for the right or wrong reasons.
This empowers them to know what actions to take. Could be to fix the relationship they were in, or walk away sound in the knowledge that what happened, happened for good reason.
Having said all this logical stuff, that still leaves you with feelings that are probably making you feel bad.
Understanding why you feel bad
These feeling are as a direct result of where your mind is focused.
What no one ever teaches us is that we can direct our mind to something else. The reason we donâ€™t believe this is because not only is our reaction automatic, but if you have ever tried to get rid of a bad feeling it always comes back.
This happens because you are conditioned to focus on everything that is bad, society has taught you how to do this. What society has not taught you is there is another choice, and you can choose what to feel.
Removing the break up pain tip
The fact is this, not being with your ex-partner is not what you are upset about, even though you think it is, itâ€™s the focus you have put on that break up and the meaning you have given to it is whatâ€˜s causing you pain.
So are you focused on all the past memories, or the future you designed, or maybe both?
With practice you can learn how to focus your mind to more pleasurable things by making the break-up a good thing.
- Please note: Before you do this please be 100% sure you want this person out of your life.
Make a list of everything that was not right with your ex-relationship and with each thing you find really focus on how bad each thing was and how over time it would have become 100 times worse as they became used to you. Notice if this happened how miserable you would have been and keep their face in your mind as you imagine this life of growing hell year after year after year.
When you have completed your list then write about all the great opportunities you now have that being with your ex stopped you doing.
Now start to design the life you really want, and this time keep your focus on who you have to be, to be able to attract the person you really want.
Important: This is your chanceâ€¦
And now show yourself gratitude for giving yourself a real chance of being really happy with someone who will stop at nothing to make sure you are 100% secure in the relationship, someone who will give your relationship passion, adventure and fun, whilst making you the most important thing in their world.
They will show you a love you have never felt before and they will serve your relationship tirelessly to help it and you grow into the person you have always wanted to be, constantly giving to you and never asking for anything in return.
They will do this because they know this is the only route to unconditional love the one thing you have always dreams of and thought you were only safe to have with your children.
