What is abandonment?
Dr. Richard Enander talks about Abandonment and Learning to Let Go.
Abandonments happen all the time, yet they can have a formative impact on our mood and sense of self. They effect our mood, in that we might become angry and/or sad about our loss, and they effect our sense of self, or our identity, in that they can have us questioning our value in the world.
- Abandonments can take on many forms – our own romantic breakups, divorce (whether our own or that of our parents), those we love passing away
- Information bias: We know our thoughts much better than we can possibly know the ideas/intentions of others, so it is easier for us to ascribe blame to ourselves
- Letting go and moving on:
- Recognizing this information bias, and realizing that we can’t possibly fully understand the motivations of others, motivations which by and large may have nothing to actually do with us.
- Realizing our real value, and that it is intrinsic and not dependent on what others think about us. This can lead to improved self-care.
- Why do abandonments hurt so bad?
- How is it that we move on?
