A breakup comes with its traumas. Surviving a failed relationship isn’t easy at all. It is never an easy thing to let go of someone you love so dearly. But we have no option but to move on with our dear lives. Here are what you should be doing after a breakup.
What To Do After A Breakup
1. Try To Reconnect With Yourself
The breakup experience might have made you lose your true identity. It is time to reconnect with who you were before. This is only obtainable when you learn to focus on yourself after the breakup than dwelling on the past. Focus on yourself by identifying and fixing every damage the breakup experience has brought to you. For instance, the breakup might have made you live a life of isolation. Thereby, abandoning your friends and family members just to have some time alone. Focus on fixing this by reaching out to your friends and families you’ve isolated from. Get in touch with them again, and move on to the next tip, below.
2. Maintain physical and emotional distance with your ex
Do not try or even think of contacting your ex after the breakup. Try to maintain that physical and emotional distance for at least a year or more. If you still want to remain friends, make sure you make everything casual, except you’re ready to reconcile with them and start a new romantic relationship or be ready for a second traumatic breakup experience.
3. Try to love yourself better than you do before
You might find yourself trying to please everyone and eventually displease yourself. This is a normal experience after a breakup. The reason is that most times, we think we’re not good enough or we’re not treating people the way we ought to, that is why our relationship failed. But is not true. The breakup occurred because you’re not meant to be with your ex-partner. So, instead of trying to please everyone and displease yourself, focus on loving yourself more. That is what you should do after a breakup. Find out what you need most and do those things. Make your happiness a priority now the relationship is over.
4. Focus on your goals
Another thing you should be doing after a breakup is to focus on actualizing your goals to become a better person. Work on improving your life so that your ex will regret dumping you. That is one of the ways to make an ex jealous. So, focus on making your life better than before by trying to actualize your goals.
5. Delete your ex’s contact
Make sure you cut off all forms of communications with your ex but if possible do not block them on social media. That is too childish. But if you can’t, go ahead and block them. Just make sure you’re not contacting them nor responding to their texts or calls after the breakup. Handle him or her with the silent treatment and make them feel bad for dumping you.
6. Have fun
Your relationship is over. You’re not supposed to be seen crying or still trying to let go of your ex. Accept the fact that the relationship is over and move on with your life. It is time to start living your normal life. The days of mourning are over. Have fun, go out with friends and make yourself happy.
