6 Tips for Moving On After A Break Up
Edited By Stephanie Dawson
At some point of time in our life most of us go through tough situations like a painful breakup, when everything around us seems depressing and we just feel like crying and being alone. That’s when you should realize the time has come to move on and get over your ex.
Here are 6 ways to move on and get over someone:
1. Stop calling them and running back to them
Don’t call. Or text. Or Skype. Remember that what happened was for your the best and running after them and calling repeatedly won’t make things better. Doing this will make you weak and clingy and leave a bad impression.
2. Think Positive
Don’t consider yourself worthless thinking that he/she left you and now you are going to be lonely. Think positive and stay around friends and family. Laugh and smile. You are worth all the happiness in this world and there is someone who is going to treat you better.
3. Keep busy
To get over your breakup divert your attention and keep busy. Being busy keeps your mind engaged and you will not find time to think about him/her. This will enhance your professional life and your lifestyle making you strong and bold. Gradually you will get used to new routines and will be able to avoid the immediate repercussions of the breakup.
4. Shop, exercise, and socialize
Some people love shopping and feel better when they purchase a flattering new outfit. Exercising is a great way to vent your frustration, anger, and pain. You can go out with friends and spend quality time with them which makes you feel better and realize that being single is not bad. Having a good time with friends is more enjoyable than being with someone who does not care.
5. Remind yourself that you still have a future
A breakup doesn’t mean that your life has come to an end. Remember you have a life and you are going to make most of it, you are never going to waste it on someone who did not even stop you from going away. You have goals to achieve, this petty issue cannot stop you from achieving them. Love your goals and strive for them.
6. Get rid of his things
Sometimes people keep things which given to them by their lovers even after its over. Avoid this habit and dispose of all the cards and letters that he/she gave you. Seeing the cards and re-reading their letters will remind you of the past and the time you spent together, which can make you feel sad. Throw away anything that makes you sad, or put it in the attic. If its an heirloom do the right thing and send it back.
You only live once, you are here to make the most of it and live it happily. Don’t waste it on people who don’t deserve you and don’t realize your value. Learn from your mistakes and move on, having learned from them. Just as we long for warmth after a rain, only then we realize the importance of sunlight, the same way going through hardships make you feel the importance of other people in your life who are really important to you and who care for you. Keep a positive attitude towards life and take it as it comes, face it and learn from it.
