Starting Over After a Catastrophic Loss
Recovering your life
Truth 9: Mr. Right now vs Mr. Right. There is one more thing you need to know. The right person for you right now is someone who may like you more than you like him or her. This individual really has to think the world of you, because every time he or she looks at you, it is like holding a mirror up for you to gaze into. What your date sees, you see. It’s important at the beginning of your journey back to life that you build your confidence by getting your feet wet, not by trying to find a partner for the rest of your life. Yes, you read that right. The purpose of dating after a divorce, death, or breakup is not to find someone to fall in love with immediately. The purpose is to feel loved, liked, and simply adored. You are rebuilding your identity and reconnecting with your interests and desires.
