When one of my relationships ends, I put it in perspective and move forward

I know I can survive the loss of a relationship because I have done it before. Being able to move forward after a relationship’s end is important to me.

I proceed toward the future knowing my life will go on.

I take time to reflect, so I can move forward freely. This exploration allows me to draw my own conclusions about the relationship. I learn so much from this activity. I know that this soul-searching is important to my future relationships.
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel
After a relationship is over, I ponder how I feel about the whole experience. I explore whether our interactions were mostly positive. I step outside of myself and look at the relationship from the other person’s perspective.

When a relationship ends, there is inevitably some pain, and sometimes more than a little. Yet, the termination of a relationship also provides me with a special opportunity to look within myself and learn.

As I engage in my personal journey, sometimes I write about the feelings I still have toward the other person. When I write, I have the opportunity to study my emotions later, when they are not as fresh or intense. After this reflection, I put the relationship in perspective and move on.

Today, I choose to move ahead with renewed interest in life. I realize there comes a time to let go and re-focus on the here and now. Letting go of an old relationship is quite freeing. Today, I feel cleansed and ready to live the rest of my life with zest and enthusiasm.
