Coping with rejection in a relationship, whether it be a friendship or partnership or a marriage, can be very difficult. But to add to the hurt, you can also learn that your ex has moved on quickly — or perhaps had moved on while still in a relationship with you. And that can lead to a feeling of being replaced. We’ll talk about the feelings and thoughts this can create — and something that can help you move through this grieving process.  It’s called redefinition or reinterpretation — and although it takes time to heal, this idea will help you move through feeling rejected into a better and more healthy life.

Our listener email is from someone from Sweden who used the SpeakPipe opportunity to tell me of her interest in perfectly hidden depression or PHD and its potential place with spiritual problems..I give her my thoughts..

My new book entitled Perfectly Hidden Depression has arrived and you can order here! Its message is specifically for those with a struggle with strong perfectionism which acts to mask underlying emotional pain. But the many self-help techniques described can be used by everyone who chooses to begin to address emotions long hidden away that are clouding and sabotaging your current life.
