How can you understand and recover from a breakup/divorce?
Break up, or even divorce, can be a challenging and difficult process, but letting go of some things is a natural part of life and relationships. For Cancer individuals who are known for their strong emotional attachment in their interpersonal relationships, it is important to acknowledge and process their emotions in a healthy and constructive way for them to attain complete recovery and regain themselves, but better, wiser and stronger. This may involve talking to friends or family members, writing in a journal, or seeking professional counseling. Additionally, it is also important for the Crab to practice self-compassion and be forgiving of actions that may have caused damage on the people they love and on themselves. To be gentle and kind to themselves during this crucial time, and to prioritize self-care practices such as exercise, healthy eating, and self-reflection will significantly benefit them as they undergo the process of healing.
Most importantly, Cancer individuals also need to be aware of the role they play in their journey towards healing and recovery. They will need to avoid detrimental actions which may involve letting go of negative thoughts and beliefs about themselves, such as self-blame or self-doubt, being critical on oneself or resorting to destructive behaviors to divert the heartache preceded by healing and instead should be focusing on positive self-talk and self-compassion. Additionally, the sentimental and emotional Crabs may need to work through any lingering feelings or attachments they have towards their former lovers, and learn to see the relationship in a more neutral light instead of perceiving it as their sole redemption for the seemingly godforsaken situation they are placed into. Cancer individuals will need to focus on personal growth and self-discovery. This may involve exploring new interests and hobbies, developing new skills and abilities, or taking on new challenges and adventures. This can help Cancer individuals feel more confident, empowered, and fulfilled, and can also provide a sense of purpose, fulfillment and direction as they move forward with their life after severing ties with the love of their life.
It is also important for Cancer signs to build a strong support system, surrounded by friends and family members who love and care for them as much as they do. Remembering that the Crabs have a solid support system can help these sentimental individuals feel less alone and isolated during this dark time, therefore, providing a sense of comfort and security as they navigate their feelings and work through the separation. Additionally, seeking professional help may be a good idea if they are having problems dealing with their heartbreak. A therapist can provide the Crab with guidance, support, and necessary tools to help them manage their emotions and heal in a healthier way as compared to resorting to destructive habits to momentarily cope with the heartbreak. Keeping in mind that getting over a breakup takes time and is a long, arduous process that will require a lot of courage and determination to achieve. However, it is important to be patient with oneself and to not have high standards for oneself.
