Before your loss what did you most enjoy doing with others when out? For example, going to a restaurant or café for coffee. Create a list no shorter than five items long.
Invite one of your best friends out to do one of the fun activities on your list and have a twenty minute time limit on talking about your struggle in letting go and moving on. The time limit will help you to share what you need to whilst also enabling you to focus on happier experiences. If you have lost someone close to you the time limit need not apply, but try to think of the happy memories you shared with them rather than anything else.
What activities did you come up with? Have you thought of someone to invite out or even better have you already invited them out? Please share your thoughts in the comments below to gain encouragement, insight and support from our community, we’d love to hear from you.
