The 7-Step Love Detox Challenge that will Transform Your Dating Life
By: Dr. Aesha
With Spring just around the corner it’s a good time to detox your love life.
Why? Because your thoughts are getting in the way of you attracting and keeping love. Your thoughts shape your feelings which in turn, control your behaviors and actions. As Proverbs 4:23 says, “Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.” (GNT)
So let’s identify 7 areas where some stinkin’ thinkin’ may have crept in and what you can do to change it.
1. Block, unfollow, delete, and hide friends on social media who are holding you back.
Maybe you’re surrounded by people who are negative about relationships or who don’t support you as you seek to create your dream life. Use the delete button! You don’t need that drama in real life either, so draw some clear boundaries with your family and friends.
Forgiveness is the best closure. It heals the scars and removes the scabs that keep love from going in and out of your heart. Once you forgive, you’ll find the freedom to release your past and create a new, more empowering meaning of what happened to you.
3. Clear out text messages, emails, gifts, pictures and other keepsakes from your ex.
These items can trigger memories that can keep you from moving forward. I remember holding on to the engagement ring from my ex-fiance for years after we broke up. When I finally gave it away, I had the courage to let go of the memories AND a relationship with someone else who was toxic for me.
