Hey gorgeous! Ever found yourself wondering, “Will I ever find love again?” after a tough breakup or divorce? Trust me, you’re not alone. I’ve been there countless times. Heartbreak can leave us feeling lost and hopeless, but I’m here to sprinkle some hope and practical tips to get you back on track. 

So… Let’s dive into some unique ways to heal, rediscover yourself, and open up to love again. It’s about damn time!

Heal Your Heart

First things first, let’s mend that beautiful heart of yours. How are you supposed to do that? 

Well… it’s a process. 

Healing from past hurts is crucial. Feel all the feels—grief, anger, sadness and just get through the tunnel. 

There is a light at the end. 

Don’t rush the process; it’s okay to take your time. Consider talking to a therapist or joining a support group. Sometimes, just having someone who gets it can be incredibly comforting.

And don’t forget self-care! Whether it’s journaling, hitting the gym, or binge-watching your favorite show with a tub of ice cream, do what makes you feel good. 

Surround yourself with supportive friends and family who lift you up.

Reflect on What You Want

When you’re ready, start thinking about what you truly want in a future partner. Reflect on your core values and must-have qualities. 

Think about what you loved about your past relationship(s)? What would you like to see improved? 

Getting clear on your relationship goals will help you recognize the right person when they come along. They might surprise you!

But hey, be open to surprises! Your ideal partner might look different than you imagined. Focus on finding someone who complements you, rather than fitting a specific mold. 

Rediscover Yourself

Girl, it’s time to fall in love with yourself again! What are your passions, hobbies, and interests? 

Reconnect with activities that bring you joy and fulfillment. This will not only boost your confidence but also make you a more interesting and attractive partner. If you don’t know what makes you happy…it’s time to find out!

Use this time to work on personal growth. Set goals, learn a new skill, or find ways to give back to your community. 

The more you invest in yourself, the more you’ll have to offer a future partner.

Be Open to New Connections

When you feel ready, start opening yourself up to new connections. No rush to dive back into dating—just expand your social circle. Attend local events, join a club, or strike up conversations with new people. 

The more you put yourself out there, the more opportunities you’ll have to connect with someone special.

And when you start dating again, keep an open mind and positive attitude.

Remember, every person is unique. Don’t compare them to your past partners. Approach each new connection with curiosity and a willingness to give it a chance. 

Evey potential person isn’t a yes. They are only a maybe.

Don’t Settle

Know what you want and don’t settle for less. In the search for true love, we can sometimes be so desperate to be loved that we settle for less than we deserve. Being a doormat won’t do you any favors. Trust me, there’s someone out there who will cherish you for exactly who you are.

Stay patient and positive. You have a responsibility to yourself to ensure your needs and desires are met. 

You deserve to be happy, loved, and appreciated. Your next partner might leave sesame seeds on the counter (and the might drive you crazy!) but they are kind, have their act together and treat you like a queen. What are a few seeds, really?

Authenticity is Key

Be your most authentic self. Authentic people are happier, have higher self-esteem, and are in better relationships. 

You want a partner who loves you through every season—highs and lows. Pretending to be someone you’re not often leads to unfulfilling relationships, pain and loss… because if you can’t trust your feelings how will someone new trust them?

Being real can be intimidating, but it gets easier with time and practice. The reward is more than worth it! Practice even when it’s hard (and it WILL be hard).
