# Letting go
It’s Your Time for a Peaceful, Stress-free Life
I had not realized that what I thought was a calm and relaxed life was merely the tip of what the true meaning is. After raising my children and trying to maintain sanity within our family household, I finally learned what living a relaxed life is. I enjoyed being a wife and raising my children. It’s just that when you are in that role there barely is any “me” time to think about relaxing.
After a Breakup Letting Go Is Hard

It can take longer to get over a breakup, sometimes years, for even a short relationship. Codependents have difficulty letting go. Breakups affect our self-esteem more than it does for people who are secure and confident. This is because breakups trigger hidden grief and cause irrational guilt, anger, shame, and fear.
