Perspective (8/8)

Accept the fact that it’s normal or typical to have emotional reactions to the ending of a relationship. They’ve probably been there all along (with your partner) and are simply intensified during and after the break-up or divorce process.

Acknowledge that all relationships end due to break up or death. Just because your relationship is over, it doesn’t mean you’re inadequate or inferior — or there’s something wrong with you. Give yourself a break.
