Today, we have a special five minute Friday with humble the poet Canadian born rapper spoken word artist poet in international bestselling author more talking about how to maintain a sense of self worth through any break-up. And how did this side your motions? He's got a new book out called unlearn one hundred and one simple truce for a better life. Let's dive in. A few weeks ago got the hang out with Lewis, and we went out for carbs and had some real talk. We talked a lot about our heartbreaks relationships of the pass. It didn't go. Well, and realized is not a lot of opportunities spaces for guys to kinda talk about that. You know, we all for some reason have it in her head that will be judged or consider soften doing. So. So I really appreciate Lewis for creating us base for me. And it really is buyer. These thoughts we experienced a lot of intense pain who enjoyed out of a situation that we've I'll you'd so dear, you know, being thrown into a world that feels known we start to feel worthless alone. Scared everything we knew everything we wanted everything we understood gone so quickly. I've had my heartbroken once or twice more than I can count. Actually. And thought you survivor once and it won't be so bad. The next time. What I feel to realize the heart doesn't break the same way choice. Whenever we go through the first time probably won't get us a second. Instead of something new in probably more intense and knocks over again, my husband broken by friends business partners, girls way, more than a care to admit. And I'm fortunate to have never experienced any heartbreak at the has my family. Some of you have betrayal sucks, and I'm sorry. If you listening to this, and I'm reopening any wounds as I said, it's all central a broken heart an injury on the inside, and is very little that we can do on the outside to make it feel better. There's only so much. We can do we're mostly at the mercy of time time heals all time reveals all and it does not work at our schedule during this time feel so intense, and it's really difficult to bear. And we started to feel hopeless. I just wanna share some things that I. Realized during the difficult times that I've gone through. None of it's easy. And it's going to keep in mind that time takes his course, most of these ideas, only gain relevance. When we go to a heartbreak, and it's the realization that make me grateful that I went through those experiences are heart is an organ and is not broken but distress rowing through combined with the lack of sleep and poor diet and other choices can seriously harm our health. We have to make healthy decisions drinking may appear to numb to pain. But it's really a depressant. And it's dangerous. Addition in dependence can develop my mother lost two brothers to alcohol one after divorce alcohol and heartbreaks definitely do not mix. Also, if you were dumped or cheated on or even worse realize the relationships that come to an end because of a mismatch, compatibility and priorities. Not because you're not good enough. Don't mistake incompatibility for your personal worth is. Someone dumps you is because there wasn't a fit or you weren't. Taking them to where they think they need to be even if they tell you, you're worthless. You're not even if you feel worthless. You're not your personal worth determined by you never allow it to be dictated by anybody else. If you can't love yourself. You have no business seeking love from others to be betrayed mean.

All we have is now yesterday doesn't exist. If you can only be assumed now is all we have as what we need to focus on. We feel scared and confused when plans or derail the truth is that uncertainty is the most realistic depiction of a future. So get used to it chain. Not the enemy is the only consistency in our life. So less folk. Focus and practice adapting. Happiness is not what happens to us as how we deal with things that happened. Again. This is easier said than done, but you're better off even trying to gain some control on your life. By deciding your motions, we all have plenty to celebrate it in a life, and we can focus on what we have or what we lost. But that focus is choice in the emotions that come with that focus or a consequence of the choices. We make you see unhappiness is when that picture and head doesn't match the pitcher that's in front of us when we were a kid, and we wanted to toy mom said no and dragged aside of the store, we were heartbroken. Maybe even so mad. We didn't speak to her for a while. But we got over it. As we grow our experiences. Just applied versions of that story. We're not going to get what we want all the time realize that something there in our control. And most things are not we need to meditate on what we can. And what we cannot remedy the things we can let's work to move on from them comparing ourselves to others, just a thief of joy who. Gives a fuck.
