Breakups are the most painful thing in the world, especially when you have loved them with all your heart. When your mind replays all those happy memories together, the tears start rolling down the cheeks. It is the war between your heart and mind that makes getting over your ex difficult and painful. Your heart wants to remember them while your mind is trying to forget them.
However, you need to understand that your breakup is not the end of the world. Life goes on, and so should you. Once you have watched ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ a dozen times, have emptied boxes of tissues and ice cream, it is time for you to begin the actual process of healing from a breakup. It is not an easy thing to do, but these tips will help you get over your ex.
1. Accept your emotions
You will feel pain and anguish. Don’t resist. Let yourself feel those emotions. These emotions are as much necessary as happiness and joy that you felt when you were in a relationship. If you suppress these feelings, it can take an ugly form and rot you from the inside. Acceptance is the key to moving on.
2. Avoid contact with ex
This is so obvious. How will you get over your ex when you keep calling or texting them? You deserve some personal space to grieve. Also, clinging onto them after the breakup is not healthy for your self-respect.
The best way to get over the love of your life is to meet new people. Stop crying over them alone in your apartment, it will only make you more gloomy. Wipe off those tears, put on some mascara, and take yourself out. There can be no better way to get your mind off them than having a fun night with your gang. Uprooting your ex from your life will make space for new people to enter.
4. Define personal goals
Consider your breakup as a blessing in disguise. You have grieved enough. Now it is time to focus on your personal development. Show them that they have no impact on your life. There must be things that you may have put on the back burner when they entered your life. It is time to give all the attention to yourself.
5. Download Bumble
… or any other dating app that you prefer. The bottom line is to move on. If things didn’t work out, that’s because they weren’t meant to. It’s not a loss. In fact, it is another opportunity for you to find a better person. Remember, there is plenty of fish in the sea.
