Try to let go of any plans of great substance you had with your ex partner.
Be they building a house from scratch, going on a world cruise, or climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, they are best laid to rest with the relationship.
However, you can now plough bountiful energy into re-hatching those plans, or better still, into forging entirely new adventures that better fit you and your new circumstances.
Conquering Mount Everest would give you an equally enormous sense of achievement and it would have the new you stamped all over it in glorious technicolour. Perhaps more importantly, it won’t have a tainted memory of, ‘Look what they missed’ attached to it either.
