Hi Renata,
I will try all your suggestions above to be able to handle a very painfull break up I am going through.
My parnter of 7 yeasr acused me of cheating and walk out of my life I have no social network or friends because I devoted all my spare time to him and no matter what I do he just wipe me out of his life and I felt worst than a thunder bolt heating someone left right and centre.
I will let you know if your above suggestions will work I hope it will as I feel like I am a living dead inside.

I think it’s important that people acknowledge their feelings (e.g., writing/journaling, talking with a trusted friend/counselor). In the past, I would ignore my feelings and focus on other things. I would focus on myself but in the wrong way (e.g., shopping with money I didn’t have). I also think it’s imperative to surround yourself with positive, upbeat people. Reading/reciting positive affirmations is also helpful. I remind myself of other difficult situations I have overcome and tell myself that I will overcome this as well.
