To­day’s ro­man­tic re­la­tion­ships don’t last long and some of us find it dif­fi­cult to move on af­ter break­ing up.

Ac­knowl­edg­ing your pain is the best way to start heal­ing. Once that’s com­plete you’ll move on with ease.

As long as you har­bour the hurt of the past you won’t see an­other man or woman as a po­ten­tial part­ner. If you force your­self into a new re­la­tion­ship with the bag­gage of the past, you’ll find it hard to love and hon­our your part­ner hon­estly.

There’s no use pre­tend­ing to have moved on while you’re still hurt­ing ­in­side. MOKGADI LEBOHO, EMAIL
