After a divorce, we are constantly living on the hamster wheel of reliving specific moments of the marriage, and that can be emotionally exhausting.
But, it’s definitely possible to improve our mindset when remembering our past through the process of reflection.
I’ll be sharing the difference between relieving and reflecting and the benefits of reflecting in your journey to healing.
Tune in to this episode on Reliving vs Reflecting on Your Past in Your Divorce Recovery.
Key points covered in this episode:
✔️Reliving vs Reflecting. Reliving means allowing the anger and betrayal to come back and hurt us. Reflecting means processing what happened, taking the lessons, and appreciating how far you’ve come. If you’re able to tell them apart and choose the latter, that means you’re in a better place in your healing.
✔️Reflection allows you to celebrate. We don’t give ourselves much time to notice our small wins and distance from our past selves because of constant comparison. Despite what you’ve been through, take pride in where you are today
✔️Reflection shifts your perspective. Directing your energy toward a positive viewpoint is more productive than forcing one that doesn’t fit. Always remember that divorce happens FOR us. You have overcome so much!
✔️Reflection lets you reassess your present and future. Remember when you used to silence yourself? Now, you can live your life on your own terms. You can be as authentic as ever. There’s so much going on for you now that you’ve released yourself from the shackles of that person.
