Whenever you come out of a long term relationship, whether it was your choice or not, it can take some time to get to the point where you’re ready to date again.
We can go through the process as if we’re grieving, because we’ve ‘lost’ something. Either something that we had, or the potential of what the relationship could have been.
It can take time, space and some deep reflection to process the emotions and the experiences to get yourself to a point where you’re ready to begin dating and considering a new relationship.
Unfortunately though, there’s no indicator light that comes on when you’re ready. There’s no bell that sounds to say ‘That’s it! You’re done, you’ve healed enough and you can begin seeing people again’…so it can be hard to know when the time is right for you.
Having worked with single people I know that many people begin dating again before they’re ready, mainly because they don’t know how to tell.
So today I answer the question sent to me by Steph after she saw a previous episode of LPPTV, “LOVE this Claire Brummell! I think this is particularly the case after divorce I am starting to think, but energetically you need to be truly and fully apart from someone in order to make space for the new. I would love it if you could do a video on when you know you are ready to move on? THANK YOU!”
Now I’d love to hear from you.
What has your experience of this been? Have you moved on before you were ready and had challenges as a result of it? What are your answers to these questions? Have you been able to get to a point where you could answer yes to all of the questions, and how has that changed your dating experience? Would you like to know how to move forward in one or more of the areas? What are the challenges you’re facing with this?
Or, ask me a question that you would like me to answer on a future episode of LPPTV, what is the one thing you’d like to know? What is the biggest challenge you’re facing in your relationship situation right now?
Please share with as much detail as you can because your insight and questions may provide a breakthrough for someone else and I guarantee if you’re thinking it, someone else is too and they could benefit from you having the courage to share your thoughts and questions.
Thank you in advance for having the courage to share and being kind and understanding in the comments.
Wishing You Love,
