Many years ago, I was in the middle of a painful breakup, and I was devastated. I was hurting so much, and because I was hurting, I wanted my ex-boyfriend to be hurting too. I was obsessed with wanting him to feel as bad as I was feeling. I couldn’t see it at the time, but this way of thinking was actually making me feel worse.
When I shared my feelings with my bestie Nicole, she gave me some great advice. She said, “The best revenge is living well.”
This advice became my mantra for getting over my breakup. It helped me realize that focusing on myself and how I was living was a better way to move on than continuing to focus on a ghost relationship — one where the person is no longer there, but all of your energy is still being directed towards them.
It also became a philosophy for life in general and a way to help me stay focused on my personal power during hard times.
In this video, I share how focusing on living well can help you move on from any broken relationship, whether it’s a romantic relationship, a friendship, or a professional relationship, and why prioritizing self-care and self-love is ultimately what will help you to heal.
