Keynote Topics

It would be amiss if I didn’t talk about how I got there. People don’t want to deal or talk about the heartbreak caused by a break-up. It’s important to heal before you move on. 


Allow yourself to feel the hurt. Crying is a cathartic release. When you’ve broken up with someone after a long term relationship,it feels like a death.

So you need to grieve the loss by going through the 5 stages of grief denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance.

Also whatever you do stay away from social media. I would recommend that blocking your ex until you’ve accepted that it’s truly over.

If children are involved then it’s important to separate your grief from theirs because the love you have for them won’t change,it’s just the circumstances. Time heals.

Oprah once said when you forgive someone who has hurt you,you’re not doing it for them…you’re doing it for you.

You are taking your power and freedom back from all the anger and hurt because holding on to that grudge eats away at peace of mind.

If you get an apology from that person then it’s even easier but don’t wait for that because it might never happen. Forgive first so you can move on with your life.

Moving on:

After emptying out all your luggage from all the pain and forgiveness. You’re left with the lessons that you’ve learnt that will better equip you in your next relationship.

Lesson is that people come into your life for a season, a reason or a lifetime. In order to attract better you have to be better. You realize that you’re not the same person you were before and that.
