Things felt fine at the time. In fact, they were pretty amazing! You were in love and felt loved. Your needs were met, and you were meeting someone else’s. Everything was perfect.
But, then, everything changed. Suddenly, everything you thought you knew to be true was gone. Now, You’re left lonely and alone end it feels like things will never be OK again.
So, now what? How are you supposed to move forward? Will you ever love again? how are you supposed to find a person to connect with when you’re not even sure you are whole yourself?
No more drama. Codependent no more.
Coping With Codependency Takes Work
Codependency is not something to just recover from suddenly without actually putting in the work. That work is going to look different for different people. But, I assure you if you take the time to get to know yourself right now – however painful and difficult it may be – The end result is worth it. You will come out of this a better, more confident, whole person. A person with healthy boundaries, healthy attachment, and, maybe, a light within yourself that no partner could give. Sound amazing? That’s because it is. That’s because you are amazing. Just as you are.
“There is something wonderfully bold and liberating about saying yes to our entire imperfect and messy life.” — Tara Brach
There’s No One-Size-Fits-All #selfcare Solution to Being Codependent
A few tips for breaking through the fog of a breakup:
Avoid talking to your ex.
Make them. Keep them. Prioritize them. I get it. Feeling down makes me want to curl up and hide from the world sometimes too. Right now, you may feel like the only person you want to talk with is your ex. (refer to #2 here, please) But, even if all you want to do is retreat, find a way to connect. Yes, I know I’m writing this mid-COVID. I realize that we all have an excuse to stay inside and hide. BUT, physical distancing doesn’t mean you have to stay socially isolated. In fact, right now, you need to stay connected more than ever. Reach out to that friend you haven’t talked to in a while. Return that text. Participate in the Zoom hangout you were invited to. This is the time to cultivate meaningful connections. Not connections that you are totally dependent upon for your identity and happiness. But, healthy contacts with people who love you for who you are. Right now, in this moment. You deserve that. And, so much more.
