Sometimes, love isn’t just enough to sustain a
relationship even after many years of dating.
So how do you move on when your relationship ends
abruptly and you suddenly come face-to-face with the
painful reality that the one who you believed held your
heart has already put it in an envelope marked “return
to sender”.
Below are some tips to help you cope with such a
situation:
Allow yourself some time to grieve, sulk, pout and
cry about the ending of your relationship. It is
perfectly normal to feel sad about your breakup.
Your grieving time helps you to have things in
perspective and consider how to heal once and for
all.
Erase all the old texts, phone numbers and any
other contact information that you have on your ex.
You might even go as far as deleting his pictures
too. This is the cleansing phase of moving on.
Delete your ex from your social media accounts.
While you might think it is a good idea to keep him
as a ‘friend’ it might prove to be more painful
watching them move forward without you. Save
yourself the hurt and cut yourself from him
completely.
If you have joint property or bills together, separate
those things immediately, if you can’t come to an
amicable decision consider mediation or going to
court. Just ensure that you get rid of anything that
ties you to him in anyway.
Consider therapy or other health and wellness
alternatives to help you process your breakup if you
are finding yourself unable to cope with the
breakup. Talk to friends or family members who
can actually help you tips and pieces of advice on
how to move on.
Take this time to learn and love you. Find out what
you enjoy to do, become interested in dating
yourself so you know what you have to offer in your
next relationship. Get to know yourself better.
Stop fantasizing on how you think it could be, don’t
stand still waiting to see if your ex will come
running back to you. Move forward with the
understanding that the door has been closed on the
relationship and there is nothing to return for.
A heart break is not the end of the world, many people
have experienced it and they came out of it. That
means you too can come out of it.
Learn to love yourself more and refuse to settle for
less, no more what.
