26 Mar Thriving After a Breakup | Feel Good Friday’s W/ Liv Teixeira
Welcome back to another episode of “Feel Good Friday’s W/ Liv Teixeira.” On this episode, our host Liv focuses on the topic of how to thrive after a breakup. Liv goes in depth to explain how to feel empowered and find yourself after a breakup.
What Went Wrong?
Our host Liv says, “You must ask yourself the hard hitting questions and look at things from that person’s point of view.” You must take a look at the things that actually went wrong. Looking at what went right and wrong, begin to see what areas you contributed to the downfall of the relationship.
This means asking yourself questions about where you went wrong and what did you not enjoy about what they were bringing to the table.
You also have to take a look at the other person’s feedback about the relationship. Be honest with yourself about areas where you went wrong or could have been a better partner.
Write down your dream list of all of the qualities that you are looking for in your next relationship.
First, write down successful people of the gender(s) that you are attracted to or that you admire or would make a good partner.
What are some of the key components that make them a good partner?Are they a good family man? Is their humor important to you? What is it exactly which characteristics keep coming up? This is an easy way to create a concise list of what you value.
For example, if Will Smith is on your list, you may be attracted to the fact that he is a family man, or that he is funny.
An activity like this works well with celebrities probably better than real people you know. This will give you a good idea of which qualities to look for in your next partner. If someone doesn’t meet most of those ‘ideal’ characteristics, then maybe steer clear.
Liv says that this list helps you know when you meet someone whether or not they check your boxes.
According to Liv, this is a very important step. There must be some sort of goodbye ritual.
Taking the time to shut the door on the relationship can help you get over it.
Also, cut all ties with your previous partner, or else you will struggle to move on. If you do not accept, acknowledge, or forgive the bad, or come to terms with what has happened in order to move forward.
Focus on Yourself
You were amazing before this person, and you will be amazing afterward!
This person did not define you, so begin to create your own life.
Relationships are no the only important things in life. The end of a relationship is the perfect time to invest in and work on yourself.
“You have so much in you that you want to do and accomplish and see in the world,” Liv says.
Focus on career, health, friendships, goals, wellness or anything that makes you a better version of you.
The most important relationship that you have in this life is the relationship with yourself. During this time, show up for yourself, believe in yourself, and take the time to do the things in life that you want to do.
