There is no greater feeling in the world than sharing an intimate bond, a connection with a loved one. We experience unbelievable fulfillment when another person cares for us, desires to be with us and understands us on a level where words are not necessary.
There’s no greater feeling than being in love, being open and vulnerable with that special someone. We experience this feeling only when we share our total self and find a love that is reciprocated.
There is also no greater pain when that relationship falls apart. When the lines of communication are shattered, trust is broken, and the connection no longer exists. When all that we feel is a void – an emptiness that aches within.
We feel deep pain when that significant person we once shared so much with somehow becomes a total stranger. There are no longer exchanges of smiles, words, acts of kindness, or warmth.
Sound familiar? Going through that now? Or perhaps you’ve been through it before?
Ever had someone so close to you, who was such a big part of your life, disconnect from you? Ever felt the pain of the shadow that remains of that relationship?
Are you still holding on to it? Obsessing over it in your mind and trying to figure out what went wrong, perhaps how you can fix it, or how you can still keep this person one way or another in your life?
Ever thought about how it’s impacting you now? Perhaps how it’s blocking you from experiencing the relationship you’ve always dreamed of?
People come into our lives every day. Every relationship, whether it lasts or not, serves us. It is our responsibility to see how every part of it – the good, the bad and the ugly, is a gift. We must take the most from the experience and continue on our journey. Each person who we have ever come to love continues to be a part of us whether or not they’re still active in our lives.
Our thoughts and beliefs about the relationship, the person, and the time we’ve spent together will either be a catalyst in our growth or lead us to stagnation.
If you haven’t let go of a relationship that has been over for a while, I encourage you to take a leap – and explore how an intimate 10-week process with a Frame of Mind Coach can profoundly shift your perspective on life in a way that leaves you empowered to take control over your emotions and pave a new path of possibilities.
All that you’ve ever dreamed of is waiting for you. All you need to do is be open to discovering what gets in your way.
