What To Do When Your Relationship Breaks Down

How To Deal With A Break Up Of A Relationship

So, exactly what do you do when your relationship breaks down? Panic. That's what I did. Panic is my first reaction to everything!

But I must start this blogpost (which is a long time coming, by the way) by saying that I’m the happiest I have ever been for a long time. It’s empowering to say it out loud - or in writing, in this case. Like I almost can’t believe how great my life is going but I am honestly having the best year ever, it feels so good to be able to say that and genuinely mean it.

For once, I’m not anxious about what’s ahead and I don’t feel guilty that I’m carefree. I live each day as it comes and I feel positive, empowered, and excited about it. If you know me, you'll know that this is a big difference from the person who used to plan every single scenario in their head before confirming plans.

I’ve been busy focusing on my well-being and enjoying life, which explains why I’ve taken a huge step back from what was once my unhealthy obsession; my blog. I promised myself not to beat myself up about neglecting it (forgive me!) and that I’ll pick things up when the time is right (I'm ready now! I've missed you all SO MUCH).

My blog has been my baby for a decade (a whole decade!) and I'm proud that I've built it to a level where for the past five years it has become my main stream of income, but I’ve been enjoying life too much at the moment to document it online and even though it’s at the forefront of my mind, I’ve fallen out of love with social media too. My Instagram followers are dropping like flies but I'm not stressing about it (much).

Now is the right time for me to process what’s happened in my life during the past 3 years. As a private and reserved person, I've kept a lot things to myself at the time (even my parents didn't know back then) but the things I’ve done such as moving to London on a whim, getting a new job, forcing my workaholic self to take weekends off, and becoming a big believer in self-care was because my long-term 10 year relationship (or rather, to be pedantic, someone who has been in my life for more than ten years) had come to an end.
