When you hit that milestone of 6 months post-break-up it’s a good time to take a moment to evaluate. Quite likely by now you’ve managed to get the household bills sorted and done lots of new stuff by yourself. Things won’t have all gone to plan; there’s probably been several upsets along the way but you’re dealing with it.
Six months ago, when it was all fresh and raw, you might not have believed you could manage on your own, but putting some distance between emotional upheaval and current reality things become a little clearer. You’ve been given an opportunity to show the world (and yourself) what you’re made of, so don’t waste it.
However, no matter how fabulous and independent you’ve become, don’t be afraid to ask for help – you haven’t turned into Wonder-Woman in the past 6 months, and if you weren’t able to do certain stuff before your break-up there’s every likelihood you still can’t do some of it. Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness and definitely does NOT mean you can’t cope as a single person.
