As we come towards the end of Valentines’ season, I want to address the elephant in the room, which is the loss of a relationship. Pretty much all men that come to our group have generally joined us during a crisis, and usually, the crisis is the loss of a relationship.
Dr. Glover says: “Heartbreak and loss are part of the human condition. You haven’t lived until you’ve had your heartbroken.”
Based on Dr. Glover’s work we will discuss heartbreak and loss, diving into human evolution, interpersonal neurobiology, and attachment theory to explain why we are wired to desire connection and why its disappearance hurts so much. We will discuss why Nice Guys tend to be so risk-averse and guarded when it comes to love and loss. We will also explore why nice guys tend to be so risk-averse and guarded when it comes to love and loss. Our topics of interest include social anxiety, the fantasy life of nice guys, deprivation thinking, shame, and idealized relationships.
We will take a couple of weeks to discuss why the loss of a relationship takes place and strategies to get over the heartbreak as well as come out stronger as we move forward.
Join us at Integrated Men for part one of this discussion.
