Moving on after breaking up with your beloved is easier said than done. Your friends can give you tons of advices and tricks on how to move on and forget about your ex; but, at the end of the day, when you are in your room alone with your memories, you can’t help but feel the pain again.
You become depressed again. You may have spent your whole day with friends and family partying and having fun. But when it’s time to go home you go back to the reality. The hurt of losing your ex sinks in again giving you the worst feeling ever.
Moving on from a relationship is not easy. It takes time. It was never an overnight affair. You should exert effort and cut off all connections with your ex (and that includes Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks), removing pictures from your desk, and putting away gifts in a box. You should stay away from anything that reminds you of your ex.
How to move on after a break up starts as soon as you accept the fact that the relationship is over. Whether it is a mutual decision, your decision, or your partner’s, accept it and forget everything about it. Reminiscing can only worsen your depression, which may lead to desperation or worse, suicide.
It can be very lonely after a break up. Even if you try flirting, you will feel the urge to call your ex and reconcile. Try your best not to call your ex. This would not help heal your wounded heart. And your ex would probably be irritated with you bugging him/her. It is healthy to reflect on the relationship. Analyze the problem. See every angle and find out what went wrong along the way. In the end, there is always one conclusion: one does not want to be in the relationship anymore. And if that’s not you, then you should respect your ex’s decision.
The hardest part of moving on from a relationship is dealing with the pain. Well, there’s no other way but to deal with it. Denial would only hurt you more. Instead of escaping it, feel it. Let the pain and you become one until you get “immune” to it. If you have to cry, let it all out. If you want to throw a punch, throw it. Talk to your friends and family of what you feel. Do not keep it to yourself.
Eventually, your eyes will grow tired of crying. Your heart will be numb. In due time, you have already unknowingly gotten over a break up.
