How Grief Affects Your Relationships
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ll know
that I lost my mate of 18 years to a sudden heart attack in June 2005.
Since then, I’ve managed to move on with my life, and I’ve
learned and grown so much, I feel like a completely new person.
A large part of that change came about as a result of deciding to eliminate
negativity, and negative people, from my life. For a while, I was pretty
vulnerable, as far as relationships were concerned, and did make some
lousy judgment calls. I realised how much I’d changed when I no
longer felt attracted to the kind of men I once dated.
But this article by Sandra Brown made me realise just how lucky I was
to have come out of that phase, with little more than a better understanding
of myself, and the realisation that I needed more time to heal. Thanks
to the support of my family and friends, like my gifted energy healer,
Leo, I managed to work through my grief and other issues.
Many women are not so lucky. They end up getting into abusive relationships
because they never take the time to heal. So if you’re a woman
who’s just broken up, or been divorced or widowed, this article
will help you realise how the grief of a broken relationship can severely
impair your judgment when choosing a mate.
