Alone time may not feel like a gift right after a breakup, and you may feel that way for a while, but it is a gift. It's just disguised in many layers of sadness, grief, anger, confusion, loneliness and pain.
As you begin to peel back the layers, you will see that this time is your chance to become whole. This is your opportunity to figure out who you really are, not who you are in relation to someone else.
