Gratitude is about a shift in perception. It’s all about shifting your attention from the negative and focusing on the positive. It’s likely that throughout the relationship, you’ve experienced some growth. Be thankful for the good times, because they have shaped who you are as a person.
On the other hand, you wouldn’t be who you are today without also having to experience some pain and discomfort. Loss of a loved one is an inevitable part of the human experience, and because you are going through this one, you can emerge much stronger and better equipped for life’s upcoming challenges.
