Self-Focus After the Affair

Hobbes“The right of nature … is the liberty each man hath to use his own power as he will himself for the preservation of his own nature; that is to say, of his own life”

~ Thomas Hobbes

 

Disengage from the affair drama and start acting in your own self-interest: Focus on yourself, your own dreams, and building your own life, regardless of your relationship status.

~ Wayfarer

After the Affair

Jane RubiettaSomeone may have stolen your dream when it was young and fresh and you were innocent. Anger is natural. Grief is appropriate. Healing is mandatory. Restoration is possible.

margaret-atwood“Farewells can be shattering, but returns are surely worse. Solid flesh can never live up to the bright shadow cast by its absence. Time and distance blur the edges; then suddenly the beloved has arrived, and it’s noon with its merciless light, and every spot and pore and wrinkle and bristle stands clear.”
~ Margaret Atwood
