“I’m Still Hurting. Should I Move On?”
Is it appropriate to seek a new relationship when one is healing emotionally?
It really depends on the specific situation; it’s hard for me to give advice without knowing the details. I can only give you this general guidance: be honest with your feelings. If you truly believe that you can give a relationship partner your undivided emotional attention to allow a healthy relationship to develop, then you should go for it.
If you don’t think you’re ready to do that, then you shouldn’t. It wouldn’t be fair to the other person involved. If you decide you aren’t ready, you should do your best to get whatever help you might need to heal. Be proactive about it. Don’t just hope that healing will come on its own. It might, but do you really want to wait that long?
With blessings for a complete and speedy healing.
