A New Start

It can be daunting to make a new start, however:

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” – C.S. Lewis

The end of a relationship, even if the ending feels forced upon you, creates the circumstances where you have the opportunity to create a new beginning and work towards a different ending.

This can feel daunting but perhaps, eventually, also exciting. New possibilities can feel liberating after what can be a challenging experience negotiating a relationships end/ divorce. Many things may have changed for you and differences can be hard to accommodate into a well-established existence.  You may find yourself in entirely new surroundings, have different amounts of time alone and time with other people.

It can be valuable to think about your time and resources and really engage with your new beginning so that it is something you feel actively involved with rather than feeling like a passive bystander. If life and all its changes are feeling overwhelming it might be useful to meet with a therapist and work through your process so that you feel able and supported to move forward constructively with your future.

Change and transitions can be challenging to negotiate but with time and appropriate support working towards and shaping your own future can start to feel possible.

If you would like to discuss how to make a new start and what techniques may be appropriate, you can find my contact details here.
