This Comic Accurately Shows The Process of Heartbreak

This Comic Accurately Shows The Process of Heartbreak

Being in love can be great, the feelings and memories attached are like no other. However, unfortunately, not all love lasts and anyone who has gone from being in a relationship to being single will tell you that heartbreak can suck.

We all deal with heartbreak differently and there is most certainly no right or wrong way of dealing with it. According to Cherlyn Chong, there is a process to heartbreak that many of us will be sure to relate to and she’s detailed the exact process in her latest comic series.

The inspiration behind the comic? Chong’s own experience of heartbreak herself. About the comic she says:

“After wallowing around in misery for a day, I decided that I wasn’t going to be a sad mess anymore. I decided to use my situation for good instead of evil and since I was drawing comics anyway, I created this comic to help others going through the exact same thing.

I want people to be able to take the pain out for a bit and realize that they are going to be OK, they just need to turn that love back towards themselves.”

Take a look at part one of the comic below, and check out Cherlyn Chong’s website Steps to Happyness for the rest of the comic.

                                          Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

                                          Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

                                          The ability to reinvent and redefine yourself is a bold, daring and purposeful choice. It doesn’t just happen. You have to make a conscious, intentional choice and then follow through.

                                          If the thought of forging a new path, changing habits, thought patterns and your inner circle of friends scares you – you’re not alone. Change can be a very scary thing. It takes courage, fortitude and a bit of faith to decide to shed your old self and don a new persona. However, it is one of the most critical processes one must repeatedly endure in the pursuit of destiny. Change unlocks new levels of potential.

                                          The Need for Change

                                          Everyday when we wake up, we make a decision. We decide to follow our routine or we decide to go off script and shake things up a bit. For those who are creatures of habit, routine is comfortable, easy and produces very little stress. The problem with this is, after a while you stop growing.

                                          Advertising

                                          We all reinvent ourselves at some point in our lives. It is absolutely necessary to achieve certain levels of success.

                                          Reflect back on who you were as a teenager and then who you were at 25. Those are two very different people. Most of us are completely different. Your thought patterns changed, your appearance, job, level of education and even your friends– changed. We like to refer to this as “growing up” or maturing and consider it to be one of life’s natural progressions. However the changes you made were purposeful and deliberate.

                                          This process must be a lifelong and continuous cycle. You are never too old to refresh yourself.

                                            Signs It’s Time to Redefine

                                            “Just as established products and brands need updating to stay alive and vibrant, you periodically need to refresh or reinvent yourself.”– Mireille Guiliano

                                            So how do you know when it’s time for a system upgrade? There are signs along the way that alert you that it is time for an overhaul. The first sign is the feeling of being stuck. If you feel like you are in a rut, you’re bored with life or you need some newness and excitement, a self reinvention may be in order. Re-evaluate your life vision and your goals. Is that vision still valid and are your goals consistent with your vision and–are they achievable? If you are off course, it’s time for a change. If you are not moving forward and making progress, it’s time for a change.

                                            Advertising

                                            In life, there’s no such thing as neutrality–you’re either moving forward or you are moving backward. Time constantly moves forward and if you are standing still, you are actually losing ground. No matter your age or stage in life– there is always room for improvement.

                                            “You’re never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” ~C. S. Lewis

                                            The second sign that you are due for a change is the occurrence of major life events in which change is forced upon you. Getting married, starting a new job, being promoted, ending a relationship, becoming a parenting or relocating are all prime opportunities to completely overhaul your life.

                                            Advertising

                                            When these major shifts occur in your life–you have to shift with them. You can’t have a single mentality and have a successful marriage. You can’t remain selfish and irresponsible, and raise a healthy, well-adjusted child. You can’t be promoted to a supervisory position and keep the same subordinate attitude. Each level of success requires something different from you.

                                              Consider, for a moment, Arnold Schwarzenegger. People may have different opinions about his character and some of his life choices, but he is a master at reinventing himself. He achieved the ultimate success as a professional body builder by earning the title “Mr. Universe” three times. He then earned a tremendous amount of fame and fortune in the entertainment industry making action/adventure films. And in his latest role, he served two terms as the Governor of California. He succeeded as a professional body builder, a film star and a politician. Each role required massive amounts of change, commitment, strength and hard work.

                                              And if Arnold can do it…so can you!
