Breakup, Healing, and Dating Advice During Isolation

Are you tired of the person you love?

Quarantine has brought about a host of struggles — health concerns, job loss, and even relationship issues.

You might be spending a LOT more time with your partner than you previously have. Maybe you’re single, and you’re finding this time alone to be unbearable. Maybe you just went through a breakup and everything’s still raw, but you don’t know how to heal in a time of social isolation.

My girlfriend and I have gone through our own share of struggles during this time, but it’s also been an amazing opportunity for growth. I’ve learned more about the power of communication during this time than probably ever before.

Whether you’re in a relationship or single, it is always important to dedicate time to self-care and personal space. During quarantine, it’s likely that you might feel suffocated by the people you’re living with — maybe even your partner. If you’re single or struggling with a breakup, you may feel suffocated by your own thoughts. In each case, learning how to love yourself so you can best love others is key.

While you might be growing through some relationship struggles right now, this is an opportunity for growth. We grow when we’re in situations that cause challenges, not even everything is going perfect.

Today on The School of Greatness, I have dating expert, motivational speaker, and good friend Matthew Hussey to tell us how we can heal from past breakups and make our relationships thrive during COVID-19.
