How Ashley Turned her Break-up into a Breakthrough
A recent ThriveTalk client, Ashley was going through a horrible break-up with her boyfriend. They’d been together for two years, and the breakup came without warning. They’d even discussed getting married, and Ashley had been convinced they’d be together forever. So when the split came, Ashley was filled with anguish and convinced she was to blame. Ashley knew that trying to handle it on her own would mean getting lost down a rabbit hole of torment and dwelling on the past. So instead, she contacted Thrive Talk for proactive advice on what to do. Over three sessions, Ashley and her therapist talked through the reasons for the breakup, lessons to be learned, and a proactive plan for using it as a springboard to better times. Thanks to gaining a healthy new perspective on her break-up, Ashley’s anxiety faded much faster than if she’d dealt with it in her own. In fact, she felt so at peace that she was happily dating again after just 8 weeks.
