Recycled Emotions-New Definition (Relationship 101 Series)

When I looked for a definition for recycled emotions, I quickly discovered that there is no such thing.  However, there is a definition for recycled– this involves the processing of used materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usuage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for “conventional ” waste disposal. The waste hierchy Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

Here is my new definition for ‘Recycled Emotions”

This is a process that involves the processing of one’s intimate emotions from a nasty, uncaring partner into a new relationship that will prevent the waste of a kind and gentle heart. The consumption of time, in an abusive relationship should be halted immediately. There should be immediate reduction of energy into a person that does  not treat you right or reciprocate the feelings that you have for them. You should not utilze your precious breath (air) or cell-phone minutes (money) attempting to re-engage a no good scoundrel, or control freak,  who has  repeatedly hurt and played with your feelings for several minutes, days, months or years. (“Get Me Out Jesus”) So in essence you should Reduce the time and energy(air pollution) to none in this relationship.  You should Reduce your tears crying (water pollution) over someone who really does not care or invest in your heart.  You should Reuse your self-esteem to invest in someone that will invest as much in you. Finally, you should Recycle your emotions to prevent waste of a perfectly healthly, sound and loving heart.

In essence, you deserve better so go forth and move-on. Recycle those emotions for someone else and hopefully someone new. Emotions stay with us forever, don’t let them die on a person who cares nothing about you.

Enough Said,
