There are two types of pain going on during heartbreak. We have clean pain which is the typical grief, sadness and loss we experience with heartbreak but I also see a secondary pain that is being compounded which holds us back from actually getting over our ex and moving on. That pain is called “dirty pain” where we tend to shame ourselves because we are even experiencing emotional suffering in the first place.
In this episode:
- What is clean pain vs dirty pain?
- How do I know if I’m experiencing dirty pain?
- What do I do about it?
