How To Handle A Breakup

Heartbreak is truly one of the worst feelings whether you’ve broken up with your partner or a friend it’s never easy. Here a few tips I have on how to handle a breakup.

Give Yourself Time to Grieve

You’re essentially morning a loss of something that was once special, so give yourself time to be sad, angry and hurt. If that means you cry and scream into your pillow that’s fine, its the beginning of the process. Remember these feelings won’t last forever.

Don’t Contact Them

As hard as it is, reframe from texting and calling your ex as they are likely hurting too. (as hard as that is to imagine but you once where a big part of their life) Contacting them will likely increase the tension between you and make things worse in the long run. Instead, surround yourself with friends and family, tell them how you’re feeling it will help.

Remove Items That Remind You Of Him/Her

The last thing you want to see is photos of you and him/her scattered all over the place, take them down and get rid of them. If you’re not ready to throw them away right now, put them under your bed or in the bottom of your wardrobe so your not reminded of him/her every time you enter your room. This includes removing your ex from social media.

Avoid Diving Into Another Relationship

When your heart is broken you might be tempted to look for someone to fill that void. It’s very unfair to get into a relationship with someone whilst you’re still hung up over your ex, you’ll likely just end up putting yourself in a miserable situation.

Enjoy Being On Your Own

After losing someone you spent a lot of time with you’re bound to feel lonely. Try to enjoy your own company, pamper yourself, reorganise your room, watch that movie that he/she hated but you loved.

Think Of The Reasons Why You’re Better Off Without Them

There is a huge benefit to this. For example, if your ex-didn’t want you to go to a certain place or apply for a certain job you now have the freedom to do so. Try writing down reasons why you’re better off and referring back to them as and when you need to.

Love Yourself

Learning to love yourself is most likely the hardest thing to do. Remind yourself you’re beautiful, kind and caring. Love everything about yourself, you deserve to be happy and comfortable in your own skin as its the safest place to be!

What To Do If You’ve Been Struggling For A While

It happens, and it’s completely normal! Don’t be afraid or embarrassed to contact your doctor and let them know how you’re feeling, especially if it is affecting your day to day life. You could benefit from some therapy sessions to help manage your emotions.
