This is one of the hardest parts of letting go and moving on because it seems like everything you love will cease to be once you truly let go and move on. I promise you this is not the case. You can still honor your memories and let go of the pain associated with them. Try this exercise to begin imagining a meaningful future, one that is filled with happiness and fulfillment.

 

Step One

 

Ask yourself what the person (or thing you are trying to let go of – insert as necessary) offered you that was so special.

 

For example, in my case it was romantic love.

 

Step Two

 

Brainstorm who or what could offer you something comparatively special – this is difficult but really try your best to come up with three things that you could seek out and nurture.

 

In my case this was the unconditional love of my parents, the companionship of my friends and a possible boyfriend.

 

Step Three

 

Make a plan to introduce things or foster deeper connections with those that can offer you something comparatively special.

 

My plan was to spend more quality time with family and friends. Once I went through the other steps I’ll mention in Monday’s posts, having successfully let go and moved on, I also joined eHarmony where I met the love of my life!
