When I found myself suddenly single with no prior experience dealing with break-ups, I initially turned to books for ideas on how to heal. The books had no end of suggestions, but they were buried in pages and pages of text that I simply could not manage to wade through at that time. I needed a simple fix, something that would tell me what to do that didn’t require a full-night’s sleep or a full mental capacity to understand. I created a version of the flowchart below to help me get through those early days, weeks, and months. Maybe it can help you too.
I’d love to hear what you do or have done when you find yourself in these moods. What would be on your flowchart?
