When a woman has lost her partner it can be one of the most difficult times in her life. She may go through the loss of several close, loving friends as well as finding that she now struggles with isolation and loneliness. These feelings are perfectly normal and to many women, they are symptoms of the stages that come before giving birth. However, there are several ways to cope with these issues if you can work through them and start to have hope.
The first step in coping with these changes is to get the proper support you need from family and friends. They can help you through the initial phases when you are getting overwhelmed and begin to deal with all of the emotions that come up. Don’t underestimate the value of your friends’ support. You need them in order to feel good about yourself again and to begin building relationships once again. Once you reach this point, you can look for other friendships to strengthen your current relationship.
While you are doing this, take a look back at the relationship you have now. What kind of relationships do you have now? If you have lost several close, loving friends, maybe that is why you were able to have a relationship. It may be that your new friends are the ones you can always count on. If you can’t make new friends, you may want to talk to your old friends and see if they are having any trouble adjusting to their new situation or are having any difficulty keeping their relationships alive.
While you are evaluating your current relationship, you will probably wonder what made it survive. Did something happen that either prevented you from falling apart or pulled you together in a new direction? One of the reasons people find themselves in relationships is that people are drawn to each other based on similarities rather than differences.
When you meet someone new in a new place, you create an instant circle of people with similarities. The new person may become your friend if you both have the same interests. If you can accept this and continue to be happy being friends, it may lead to lost friendships. You may have ended up losing the friendship but you are also probably glad you did.
In addition to making a new friend, you may also have some previously lost friendships to sort through as well. Sometimes the pain of a breakup can make you think about the person you broke up with and regret having gone together. At this point you may begin to question why you were broken up, to begin with, and what you can do differently to make your relationship better. Even if you have been friends for years, it is possible that you have some bad habits that you are trying to get past.
It is important to remember that even though you may have lost friendships, it does not mean the end of your friendships. You have to realize that you did experience pain, so the breakup was not the end of it. There is still a chance that the two of you will meet again. You may be able to get back together and have a deeper connection than before. If not, you can learn how to deal with your pain and move on.
It is important to keep yourself healthy when you are pregnant. This includes eating right and exercising. It is possible to keep a healthy relationship with your friends while you are going through a difficult pregnancy. When you are ready to move on, make friends with them again and enjoy the time you have together while your baby is growing.
