Baggage Reclaim is a guide to learning to live and love with self-esteem by breaking the patterns that stand in your way.
Whether it’s figuring out what’s going on in a troubling relationship, understanding you and self-care, or being more assertive, I’m here to help you guide you.
If you’re with an overlapper, ask about their breakups.
You experience a myriad of emotions and sometimes, you feel guilty or even blame you for why the relationship ended and so it can seem all the more like a big fat kick in the teeth to discover that there was an ‘overlap’ and that your ex had in fact already started seeing someone else the breakup.
You’re grieving the the breakup and even missing them; they’re already on a new ‘adventure’ with someone else. You also feel bloody well duped if you were having discussions with them during their overlapping.
It makes you wonder what was real and what was fake.
I remember when an ex sobbed about how devastated he was as he ironed the hell out of his cricket trousers just a little over a week after our breakup.
A week later I was at our old flat collecting stuff and listened to the voicemails most of which were for me except one from 5am the week before.
