I want you each to answer one question as honestly as you can.
When life gets overwhelming, and you really need a recharge, do you get recharged by spending time alone, or do you get recharged by spending time with others?
I have given a lot of advice to others over the years. I’ve received a lot of advice, too. Sometimes it’s on the money, and other times it bounces off the receiver as if it’s the worst idea ever. I was talking to a dear friend a little while back who was heart broken. Over me.
In truth, I was heartbroken over her, as well. We had experienced a whirlwind romance that ultimately couldn’t work for all sorts of reasons, and I had broken it off.
This person is someone whose friendship I care very much about, and I really didn’t want to lose that.
I know lots of single people who think keeping good, working friendships with someone we’ve been romantically involved with is impossible in the long term. I don’t think so. I think making it work means both people find a way to completely detach from the relationship and be authentically happy for the other when they find love or the beginnings of love again. Easier said than done, sometimes, I know.
