Everyone has had a relationship that was nothing less than magical. You were willing to give up anything to be with them and vice versa. Then the unthinkable happens, the love goes away. So how does one handle something this heartbreaking? I have been there, and I learned that there are a couple good ways to jump over this hurdle.
1. Show them that your life is getting better after they’re gone
Become unstoppable. Make it that if they were going to run into you a couple months or even years down the road that they would be impressed with what you’re doing and how you look.
2. Develop a hobby
A hobby will help you take your mind off of things. It could be something as simple as going for run or starting a supper club or even joining an organization.
3. Hang out with your gal pals or your guy friends
Your friends have been there for you through thick and thin. They will pick you up, let you lean on them, and give you the support you need. Plus, who can turn down a fun wine night with movies?
4. You don’t have to rush back into dating
Some people like a rebound or a hook up. That’s fine, but don’t jump into a relationship 2 weeks after you end a two year relationship. Give yourself time to heal and let yourself grow. You do not have to always have to be in a relationship.
5. Be strong
There will be times when you will want to cry. That’s ok, and completely healthy. There will be times when you will find yourself wanting to go back to that person. If they walked out of your life, let them keep walking.
6. Don’t stress the could haves
If it should have happened, it would have.
To sum it up, heartbreak sucks. However, you will get through this. Travel and do everything you can’t do when someone is tying you down. Put yourself out there and take new opportunities because you never know how they’ll change you or who you’ll meet. And if you’re having a really bad day, throw on some Taylor Swift and have a dance party.
