Moving on with your life after being cheated on can feel impossible, and author Gabrielle Stone shares how she managed to heal after her husband betrayed her.
The “Eat, Pray, #FML” author found out her husband was having an affair with a 19-year-old. She thought she was recuperating from the affair after she divorced and began a new whirlwind relationship and planned on traveling with her new man to Italy for a month until just days before the trip the new guy said he needed to go on the trip alone.
Gabrielle was heartbroken, but she did not let it break her. Instead, she embarked on her own solo adventure where she says she was able to heal and face childhood trauma that until this point she had never dealt with. Since she was little, she had a fear of abandonment and did not feel okay being alone even as an adult.
"This was the universe's clear way of making me go face that," she tells The Doctors, explaining her trip allowed her to realize just how truly capable she was.
During her month-long trip to Europe, she began writing what would become her book. "That was my therapy, it was what got me through all of the emotions I was dealing with," she says, sharing journaling was what allowed her to heal and make it through that difficult time of her life.
During her trip, Gabrielle says she discovered a "self-love cocktail" that was instrumental in her healing process. She explains anyone can do it and it involves:
- Writing out a list of things you are capable of giving your soul and make you happy
- Then committing to giving yourself 1 or 2 things on the list each day
- She says to continue with this process for a few weeks to a month and then gradually add more things from your list to your daily life
"You wake feeling so much better because you're loving yourself," she says of her "self-love cocktail", telling The Doctors this was "life-changing" for her.
