They say that “when one door closes, another opens”, now I’ve been on this Earth for quite some time now and, I like to believe that this is to some degree, true.
It may not always be a door, sometimes it can be a tiny crack in a window or even a faint glimpse of light at the end of a dark tunnel. But, for the most part, there is always something good lingering in the horizon.
While I may not be able to predict what lies ahead (would be cool, though), I can try to help you exit your situation with grace.
You’re stuck at a job you hate
Don’t worry love, we’ve all been there. The trick is to set small, achievable goals. That way you are you motivating yourself and acknowledging your own work. While you tick off your wins, be sure to apply elsewhere. Whatever you do, do not lash out at your colleagues, friends or family. Hold your head high and know that better days are coming your way.
Quote to remember: “You are not your situation.”
You’ve fallen out of love with your partner
The best way to handle such a delicate situation is to address it, head on. If you want to stay with them, work towards it. If not, end things – gently and respectfully. No one deserves to be cheated on or to be left in the dark.
Quote to remember: “I do not need a love that is draining. I want someone who energizes me.”
You’re struggling to come to terms with an end of a relationship
You are not alone. Really. We have all felt exactly how you do now. From my experience, it does get better, you just need to let it. That means ugly crying, eating your emotions, feeling all those emotions you’re trying so desperately to hide and then, when you’re ready, moving on. This can be anything from taking up a new hobby, reading a new book and eventually meeting new people. My advice is to take all the time you need, the last thing you want is to rush into a new relationship when you still hung up on another.
