It’s time to walk away.
But they keep popping back into your life. The texts, snapchats and voicemails about how much they still love you, how it will be different this time – “baby I’m so sorry, I’ll change this time for you, I promise!” [insert eye roll]
Your friends and family have all heard it before too and now start to roll their eyes when you bring up this relationship again.
It’s taking a toll on your life. You can’t focus at work. You lay awake at night wondering if they are thinking about you or how they could do this to you? You have to muster up all the energy you have just to get through the day. You walk around in a daze and pretend like everything is ok, meanwhile you stomach is churning.
You have a couple good days and then you are back to square one again. You are constantly taking one step forward and two steps back. You wonder, when does this stop? How do I feel normal again?
Guess what? You are not alone. We’ve been there and we’ve made all the same mistakes. When we started we weren’t experts either, this has taken some crazy twists and turns, a few embarrassing moments. Too many nights overthinking and feeling devastated. But there comes a time when enough is enough.
You’ve become that couple…. On-again off-again. Desperately hoping this time would be different. But at the same time feeling lost and helpless.
Now, is not the time to crawl under a rock and hide.
It’s time to call a friend….the kind of friend that tells you how it is. “It’s time to let go and move on, they are only holding you back from becoming the person you deserve to be”
It’s time to realize that this relationship is holding you back. You don’t need to depend on them. They do not determine your self-worth. This relationship is an emotional rollercoaster.
It is no longer about them, it’s about YOU!
And, you my friend don’t need them to be happy. They do not complete you. Without them there won’t be an empty void in your life.
This choice is yours. Are you ready to do what it takes?
You say “yes”… but then start to panic and maybe lose your composure. Can you really be OK without them?
This time is different. You are cool, calm and collected. Ready for the task at hand. Breaking up is the best thing for both of you.
You feel incredible. There is a state of peace inside of you.
They are expecting you to freak out and come running back, but you are perfectly fine on your own! This is going to drive them crazy. They will try everything to change your mind.
Watch out this is often when we cave for the break up sex.
But how is this going to leave you? Satisfied or upset that you let it happen? Were you a sex deprived little puppy? You were going to stand your ground, and now you feel ashamed to tell your friend who had told you not to do this time and time again.
Are you ready for some real, cold hard truth? In every relationship the person who cares the least always has the power. As soon as you embrace this you will get the power back in this relationship.
After break up we go through shock and panic. Otherwise known as fight or flight. You want to pour your heart out and do everything to get them back, you’ll change for them, you could just workout more right?
Does this sound like the strong and confident person you are?
The only acceptable answer here is NO!
You want to get out of this crazy co-dependant state so you can finally regain peace of mind and sanity. You can be happy on your own. You no longer have to depend on them to make you happy. My friend, you are capable of greatness!!
You are not wrong in how you feel. You are not weak. This couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s not your fault, we all go through this. The problem is no one ever taught you how to get through it.
But it’s Ok because you do have people to support you, find those people and stick with them!
Think about all of these emotions we just explained and compare them to your relationship with junk food. Does it satisfy you in the moment? Have you tried to leave it, or break up with it before? Do you always go back thinking it might be different the next time? All these answers are YES! It’s crazy how similar they are, but it’s so true! Let’s be real – to get over an ex the simplest thing to do is just move on and remove him/her from your life. So what if we were to take that same simple analogy with junk food? Just eliminate it all together – sounds easy enough, but these stages of a break up will pop up.
