We’ve all experienced someone in our life walking away when we least expect it, whether it be a lover, family member, friend, and colleague. It is hard to move on from something that has been part of our lives for so long, but it is important to remember that it is all a part of life.

Accepting Loss

The first step to coming to terms with someone special walking out of your life can be hard, but it is necessary to accept the reality. Accepting that it is ok to grieve the loss and cry is one way to move past the difficult time.

Be Kind to Yourself

Don’t be too hard on yourself while you process the change. Take the time to do things that bring you joy or keep your mind active and away from dwelling on the sadness.

Look Onwards

While it may be hard, it is important to keep looking forward. After saying goodbye to something old and taking the necessary time to process, we can now take steps to open ourselves up to new possibilities. Here are some suggestions that may help:

    • Focus on self-growth: Now is the perfect time to focus on the you. It can be anything from picking up a new hobby, doing some start-up volunteer work, or taking a class about something that interests you.
    • Limited communication: If you must, maintain communication but keep it limited. Be disciplined and do not let yourself slip into a pattern of relying on the other person to discuss details from your life.
    • Acknowledge yourself: Every day, take the time to remind yourself of your strengths and all the things that make you unique and special.

At the end of the day, it is ok to not be ok and feel like you are missing a piece. Not everything works out the way we would like. But the important thing is to surround yourself with people who relate to the situation and are understanding. Remember to stay positive and keep looking forward.
