Feel Your Grief

Written by Rinatta Paries

I recently asked a friend of mine who has been single for several years if she was complete with her past relationships. It's been my experience that one cannot move forward into healthy new relationships until they are complete with their past. My friend said she had no feelings left about her old relationships.

After a little prodding, she admitted she had managed to get over her divorce by getting into a relationship quickly after her marriage ended. "I was amazed at how easily I could forget my husband," she said. Her relationship with her new boyfriend lasted only a few months, and yet she says she still has feelings for him.

Is my friend ready for another new relationship? Perhaps if she wants her next relationship to closely resemble her previous two. But not if she wants something different.

The only way to forget a former relationship as soon as you enter a new one is by avoiding your feelings of grief overrepparttar breakup. You would instead look forrepparttar 101868 new relationship to fill you up.

The only way to do this is to hold your needs, wants, and desires trapped in your heart, unfelt, unmet, and waiting forrepparttar 101869 next partner. Although most singles think this is what they are supposed to do, it is not.

New Web Site Assists Car Crash Victims

“I Didn’t Realize I Had So Few Friends”

Minneapolis, MN, August, 2002 – When Daniel Prins’ wife was injured in a car crash he thought all he had to do was notify his insurance company to get matters resolved. After all, another driver who was charged with DWI hit his wife Johanna and she was taken torepparttar hospital by ambulance.

After weeks of frustration, Prins, Marketing Consultant, built an Internet Assistance Program “The Car Crash Victims Alliance Of America.” The site provides free information for car crash victims on how to protect themselves against serious financial exposure (http://www.carcrashvictims.citymax.com).

“I Didn’t Realize I Had So Few Friends”

While insurance company claims personnel are usually courteous, Prins had no idea that his wife’s case was immediately “compartmentalized”. He had to deal with a cast of about a dozen (medical bills fromrepparttar 101867 hospital, his own and other driver’s main insurance contact,repparttar 101868 police, claims adjusters, property damage, etc.). Inrepparttar 101869 process, he found out that most of these individuals have their own agenda. Said Prins:” I believerepparttar 101870 only people truly on our side wererepparttar 101871 Emergency Crew and Police atrepparttar 101872 scene ofrepparttar 101873 accident.”

Accident Frequency Is Astonishing

About 42,000 people are killed on our nation's highways each year. The fact is vehicle crashes are an even greater threat to life and health inrepparttar 101874 U.S. than crime! In 2000, there was one murder every 34 minutes, while one person died from a traffic crash every 13 minutes. There was one violent crime every 22 seconds, but one crash-related injury every 10 seconds. Traffic crashes arerepparttar 101875 leading cause of death inrepparttar 101876 U.S. for people ages 6-33, and their economic cost is estimated to be $230.6 billion per year.

Victim-unfriendly Environment

The lack of clear rules and rights overwhelms car crash victims, often traumatized and shell-shocked. This is especially true in states with No-Fault provisions and damage limits. Even more disconcerting is that it is difficult to obtain good information. The Internet’s search engines, for example, provide few clues for victims and are skewed to offering suggestions and advice for accident perpetrators and those seeking DWI defense.
