It’s over, starts by accepting it.
You have to tell yourself that you are not with him or her anymore. You could have been madly in love but it is essential to let go. It doesn’t matter whether it is one-sided or mutual, gather strength and accept it.
Be strong, that’s the only way.
You were doing well even before this person came into your life. Your time together must have been beautiful but don’t pull yourself down due to it. There is a silver lining, somewhere out there, no matter how cloudy it may seem.
Keep yourself occupied.
Get busy with anything you could do. Keeping yourself occupied will make you think less of your ex. Try painting, try a yoga class or just call up old friends. Do everything that will make you feel YOU!
Embrace the singlehood.
It gets difficult to stay single after being with someone for very long. It can come with few advantages, however- you could party late with your friends, play Xbox and do things that your ex-didn’t like doing.
Love the life around you.
Breakups can be hard, so it is difficult to feel happy at all times. Let your friends help you! Go for that road trip. Say hello to that girl at the cafe. Enjoy all that is around you. Be with cheerful people. Time has magical ways of healing you. You will be angry, depressed and so much more. But there is always hope to be a better person. Live every day to the maximum and everything is going to be just fine.
