Stop me if I sound like a broken record but going through a breakup is the equivalent of going through a cocaine withdrawal.
Now, that’s a pretty bold statement but it’s actually true.
Studies have proven that the part of the brain that becomes active when you are heartbroken is the same part of the brain that lights up in cocaine addiction.
You aren’t in your right mind to even think about getting an ex back (if that’s even what you want.)
And to top it off the amount of anxiety you are experiencing with a breakup can be overwhelming for a lot of people which is why I brought Gina Ryan, from “The Anxiety Coaches Podcast” onto the show today to give you some techniques that you can use to deal with the anxiety that you are experiencing in your breakup.
