My name is Tabitha. I’m a happy-go-lucky, friendly person. I genuinely like other human beings (99.9% of the time) and try to do good things (again, I am not infallible…). I am a broken-hearted-but-not-broken gal. I share my thoughts on the Broken up But Not Broken blog.
Once upon a time I was with a man I truly loved. Let’s call him ‘E.W.’ It was all meant to work out – we were getting married, we would move into a lovely home together with a summer room, he has a lovely family and I was genuinely excited to be part of it. I considered myself the luckiest gal on the planet . I couldn’t believe it was true.
Suddenly it unraveled, and I found myself a long way away from where I wanted to be in every respect – geographically, emotionally, financially, and mentally. I had such an immense sense of loss of the life I thought I was going to have, it was overwhelming.
But the strangest thing happened. I not only survived, areas of my life have thrived – I have been to places I wouldn’t have visited while I was with E.W.; questioned and changed areas of my life that I thought I was happy with. Now, I have changed myself, my outlook and become a completely different person.
Breaking up is so hard – whether you’re the ‘breaker’ or the ‘break-ee’. But the great news is it can open up a whole new world of possibilities.
The problem is when you’re busy hating yourself; sobbing day and night; binge-eating anything from your fridge-freezer; wearing the same clothes for several days; unable to do, see to hear anything without having flashbacks of What Life Was Like With Him and subsequent breakdowns, then it can be really hard to see these amazing possibilities.
So let me help. You can either sign up for my ‘Cheer Up, Break Up’ emails or podcast, follow us on Facebook, Twitter. Please share your thoughts, feedback and hope on the blog. If you want to take some action and to work together then please check out the programs we run (our current program is ‘Get Real’ – you can find more details about this specific program here).
So dry those eyes, stop looking back and start to look forward – to your new, bright and fabulous future!
With love, Tabitha x
