This post is about feelings
My reality is probably a lot like yours. I am incredibly busy. This blog has floundered over the last month. Mainly because it has slipped down my priorities to organise posts. There is a lot happening at work and my personal life took a unexpected turn when my partner and I decided to go our separate ways at Easter.
If you follow my life streams (twitter/insta) you will know all about this. When feeling sad and vulnerable, it is hard to maintain a professional persona. Deciding to tell people about the break-up has helped immensely with the grief. I am so grateful to all the people who have reached out over the last 2 months.
My recipe for processing all the feelings has been: stay away from men, food and gin! Or to put that another way. No empty calorie sex, eat well and don't drown my sorrows in alcohol.
Stay away from men, food and gin!
Everyone processes grief and deals with feeling sad differently. There is no one-size fits all. The only advice I'd give is that, if your feelings are overwhelming, please seek professional help.
I know my self pretty well and it is going to take time to heal but my optimism has returned and although a little scared about my future and whether I will find love again, life is full of possibilities.
