Our thoughts can be as powerful as any drug; and our brain is like the drug dealer. When heartbroken especially, it's so easy to get addicted to thoughts that hold us down.
Thoughts like "I feel like my marriage was a total lie," "How am I going to survive?" "Will I ever stop crying?" "Sh*t, I forgot to pack the kids lunch ... I'm such a bad mom." And what happens then? Stress, anxiety and fear consume you and drive your behavior and decisions.
