Listen to podcast of Accepting the Unacceptable:
Or do the wounds just get buried deep in our cell tissue to surface years later with the diagnosis of cancer, arthritis, heart dis-ease and the like? Time dulls the wound but the anger, hurt, resentment and all those yucky feelings that go hand-in-hand with most break-ups, takes knowledge and responsible action to heal the wounds from love gone wry.
The first step is deciding you want to be happy again. You could wallow in your misery and depression. And that’s okay if you want to feel miserable for a time. Mourning is a vital part of the healing process. But you are the one who gets to choose how long it will last. I’m not saying it’s easy. I’m saying you have a choice. Only when you decide you want to be happy again will you be able to heal the wounds and move forward.
Once you make that decision to commit to happiness and healing, you will be in a position where you can address the issue and the emotions of accepting the unacceptable. It’s very difficult to accept the fact that your boyfriend has been sleeping with another woman and has moved on with his life. But when you decide you are going to move on too, I guarantee you will end up miles ahead of him on the path to happiness because a life well lived is the best form of revenge. And when you are happy, it won’t matter how many women your ex is sleeping with because you will have truly moved on.
