It seems to be inevitable that pain and distress come up, even overwhelms you, when it comes to a separation, especially from a long term partner, but also from children, parents, friends or even pets.
Traditionally there are three ways to handle the problem:
- Immerse in fear, anxiety, intense pain and the feeling of being lost all together, the helpless victim
- Get furious and angry and try to get vengeance for the hurt, trying to search allies against the other – or your destiny
- Pretending that nothing has happened and, outwardly, going on with everyday life while pushing the negative feeling “under the carpet”
All 3 “methods” are not healthy and bring big damage to your own health and the wellbeing and health of the others involved in that game.
But is there a different way to handle these experiences in life? – Yes, there is.
