Own The Feels: Own Reclaiming Your Identity
Listen to the full episode of Own The Feels on our Culture Vulture podcast feed, wherever you get your podcasts!
Welcome back to Own The Feels - brought to you in partnership with Love Better - where we’re doing our damnedest to help us break-up better - which means owning whatever we’re feeling and learning how to deal with it.
This week we’re talking all about how to reclaim your identity when you’ve broken up with someone you intertwined your life with.
“I think the most profound heartbreak I've felt was over the longing for a life and version of myself that I lost, because I got so caught up in being in a relationship.”
Sometimes, when you break-up with someone that you’ve shared SO much of your life with, it can not only feel like you’re losing them, but you could also feel like you’ve lost a bit of yourself. A huge part of healing is trying to find yourself again - and you totally can! Let us help you figure it out.
A huge thank you to Love Better, and everyone who gave us their stories to make these podcasts possible. If you want to know more about how to break-up better, listen to next week's episode, and head to https://www.vice.com/en/topic/love-better.
