The holidays can bring out a lot of emotions.
I've had to do it myself and I know exactly what it takes to overcome the challenges. But that's a tale for another time... (*see note below)
I can speak from personal experience what it is like to lose a spouse, a mother, a father, and a brother, and have a relationship end right around the holidays and pick up and start all over again. It’s not easy, but there are coping mechanisms I have learned along the way that helps to lift you out of feeling miserable.
Honor and Cherish the Memories
If a relationship has just ended and you are still grieving over the loss of a love, you must go through the process of grieving and it is usually the disappointment of what your expectations were for the two of you. It does not mean that love will not be a part of your life again. But it is allowing yourself to process through the disappointment, anger, the hurt, to heal and allow yourself to experience love again.
Learn to Love Yourself
I challenge you to write a list of 25 “I deserve” statements. For example, “I deserve happy and harmonious relationships with family, friends, and significant others”. “I deserve a new car fully paid for and equipped”. ”I deserve reliability among my friends…” You get the idea…be as specific as you want to in your statements. When you are finished…keep a copy in your wallet—-keep a copy in a special place. Try and read your “I deserve” statements once a week.
Practice Meditation or Try Something New
At the holidays (and all year long really) getting over loss and sadness is about changing your thinking pattern. It is not always an easy path to find happiness but when you begin to develop the connection with yourself, what your dreams and desires are for yourself, you can then let in the people you want in your life to love, and to support you.
