Change and Starting Over

mural

Break-ups, divorce, and the end of a good relationship are just some of the most painful things to deal with. But they can also be great opportunities to start over. Many inspiring stories of change involve a process of reinvention or of starting fresh. The process may be different for everyone, but taking a new path in life after a life-changing event is something anyone can do. And here are just some of the many ways to do it.

Spend time on personal growth. A setback is a chance to build on the lessons learned from the experience. Do something that will have a positive impact in your life or anything that promotes personal growth. Take classes that add to your skills or hone what you already have. Use your time for positive things that can provide you with transformative experiences.

Seize the day. Seek and grab opportunities that come your way as you go through the process of reinventing yourself. Some of these opportunities may come as challenges. Be open to challenges that would stretch and test your limits. You cannot remain in your comfort zone if you wish to succeed in reinventing yourself.

Explore your passions. Have you noticed how people who live their passions exude happiness and success? One probable reason would be because they stay true to themselves and their aspirations in life. You may be aware of your passions but have somehow neglected them in favor of other responsibilities. Your time of transformation can be a good time to rekindle your passions and rediscover your dreams.

We want to tell you about a real life story. This was shared by our best friends Jen and Ted. They had a rough relationship but was able to overcame the odds that stopped them from loving one another. In this story, love wins.

Jen’s Struggle

Jen is a school teacher while Ted works as a medical representative. They have a beautiful daughter. She’s turning 7 this year. Jen was always busy with work and raising her only child. She said, “I find it hard to find sometime for myself, how I wish I could go back to those days when I’m still free.” She viewed her family life as a prison. She can’t do the things she wanted to do because she was preoccupied with so many things for her family.

Third Party Issue

Ted’s work require him to be in different places, meet new people and hit his quota every month. He was so busy at work that he barely have the energy to help Jen in the house. They don’t talk anymore because it’s either they were too tired at work or they can’t simply find the time. Unknowingly, Ted was longing for companionship and love. Amelia came, his coworker. She was the girl that Jen used to be. Ted fell in love with Amelia and had a romantic relationship with her.

The Unending Quarrel

Jen was starting to notice Ted’s aloofness. She had this instinct that something is going on with Ted. Like normal girls, she did her own investigation. She tried to check Ted’s phone but it already had a password. Now, she was sure that something was going on. She went to Ted’s workplace and discovered about Amelia. It broke her to pieces. When Ted got home that day, Jen confronted her. It turned to an endless discussion. It turned their relationship from cold to bitter.

A Spark Of Hope

The Second Chance

Ted found out about a boot camp for couples who are struggling on their marriage. He told Jen about it but he did not promise anything. Jen thought it would be awkward but she said yes anyway. The couple joined the boot camp and had the chance to travel together. The couple were surprised that they still enjoy each others’ company. During a session, Ted cried when he realized that what he did was a terrible mistake. Jen saw Ted’s sincerity and finally have forgiven him. The couple finally realized that they still love each other. Divorce didn’t happen, love won.
