Self-Inquiry For Self-Healing
- Did you witness any signs of disconnection before your divorce (not planning activities together, not really talking things through, even arguing (which is healthy to an extent for all couples), not having the tough conversations about vulnerable feelings of hurt and heartache, not sitting next to each other on the coach, not having fun together, etc.)?
- Is it possible that your communication style (which might be very quiet and avoidant) contributed to the divorce because you didn’t express your needs and wants? If so, how?
- How can you grieve what once was and go forward? Getting a divorce, even if it was YOU who initiated it, warrants a time to grieve. Give it some attention. “I give myself permission to grieve the loss of this relationship. I honor our time together and all I learned from my ex even if it ended in divorce.”
