Hello @sarah and @flowerpower,

Sarah that affirmation really makes a person think about how much they value themselves and what is really important. The most important person in a relationship is yourself. The reason for this is like people say, you have to put your own oxygen mask on first in order to help loved ones around you. I always think about this as being your strongest self-first, for those around us. Honestly though, this has and continues to take time to sink in for me as I am a true “people-pleaser” which really doesn’t help when it comes to putting myself first for my own well-being. I hope others are able to share their stories with you about how to cope after any kind of relationship breakdown. Personally, trying to keep on top of that self-care has become the most important thing, as I have others to be strong for too. As @vm-thanasis43 mentioned, self-compassion is soo important. We really need to be our own best friend through times of grief.

Thank you for your contribution @flowerpower, they are some positive strategies, and it is great that you have those social support networks which act as a buffer to assist you in moving forward.

How are you both doing today? I hope you are able to smile at yourself today for how far you have come in your own journey!
