“Starting today, I need to forget what’s gone. Appreciate what still remains and look forward to what’s coming next.”

Hey guys, Long time no talk !

For those of you who do not know what this months book is, you can check it our below!

I am back with another post about Februarys’ book. Ass you can tell by the title, this chapter gets deep. When I got to this chapter, it triggered me. I was pouring so much into a person and didn’t realize that I was forgetting about myself. Let’s be honest, we all go into relationships and friendships with expectation of things being amazing, but when it fails, it feels terrible. “

“Thank you for not only falling short of my expectations, but for giving me new reasons to have higher ones. ”

This is a phrase that we need to tell ourselves. Matter of fact. When you go through a breakup, I think you should write a letter to them, you don’t have to give it to them. This is for your peace of mind, Get all your pain, feelings of betrayal, and anything else out. This chapter was a letter to help the author let go. I think the author was hoping that whoever reads it, would feel release.

The Next Chapter:

“6 Ways To Move On After Heartbreak That Will Begin To Heal The Pain”

Excerpt From: Thought Catalog. “The Art Of Letting Go.” Apple Books. https://books.apple.com/us/book/the-art-of-letting-go/id1088918035

Moving on to chapter 4. In the chapter the author gives us tips on moving on, after that hard letter we had to write in chapter 3.

We have all had heartbreaks, and if you haven’t, you are bound to experience at least one in your life. My first heartbeat was the end of high school/ beginning of college. But it was a dumb and very immature break-up. It was nothing but two immature kids thinking that they had found love. After, that heartbreak, I was not looking for anything serious. I seriously was just playing the field. Which is really normal for someone my age.

Finally, I had found someone I truly cared for and things were great until they went left. I’m convinced it was self-sabotage on their part. I guess I will never know why I was treated the way I was by them, unfortunately.

Steps to move on

In wil not go into dept of what tips the author gave, but I will make a list of them;

“Don’t Take it Personally”

“Feel Your Feelings”

“Write Him A Letter You Don’t Send”

“Surround Yourself With Love”

“ Do A Self-Check”

“Get Excited About Your Next Relationship”

“You’ll always be my favorite ‘what if’.”

Chapter 5:

“To The Lovers We Never Fully Let Go Of”

Basically, this chapter is talking about the lovers we have. a hard time letting go of because that person represents a part of ourselves that we are afraid to lose. Whether that person helped us deal with trauma or motivated us in life. This person really meant something and losing them feels like we are losing a piece of us.

You may be wondering. Do I have a person like that? The answer is yes. That person found me when I was at my weakest and I feel like they used that to their advantage. Something tragic happened to me and just as I was starting to heal, I met him. I still care about him, but the way I was manipulated caught me off guard. I don’t think I will ever be able to let go, just because that tragic bond will always be there.

I’m assuming we met for a reason. At least I hope we did. I wish him the best. If we cross paths again in the future, that’ll be cool, but respectfully I expect an apology.

Sincerely…

Let’s discuss some of the tips the author gave us. How did you deal with a breakup? Also, don’t forget to like, comment, and share!
