The ONE Thing Everyone Needs To Hear After A Breakup Or Divorce
I asked a lot of people this simple question, “What was the one thing you wish you had heard after your last breakup or when you found out you were getting divorced?”
The answer was a bit of shock considering how lucky I was to hear it early and often when I got separated.
“You’re going to be OK.”
That was it. That’s what we all needed to hear, that simply sentiment. It wasn’t “it could be worse” or “your ex is an idiot.” All of which gets thrown around quite often.
No, it was that simple line. The one telling us that even though we’re in the middle of a shitstorm right now, it won’t last forever and we’ll be out of it at some point.
My friend Tom would call me daily and tell me, “You’re going to be OK man, you may not be OK for a while, but it’ll come.” Sometimes I would wake up in the middle of the night and call him just to hear him say it again – it was that important.
No matter if you’re on Day 1 of a breakup or Day 700 of a divorce, it’s equally important to know – YOU WILL BE OK. Especially if you’re following along with us here at One Day Stronger.
You’re going to be more than OK.
