Our romantic relationships can lead us to intense emotional highs and lows. One of those emotional lows often comes with a breakup with a partner. Sadness, regret, and anger are near-inevitable. That’s why it’s vital to take care of ourselves during this stressful, painful time. After all, we can’t control what happens to us in life; we just control how we react to things. The single most important thing a person can do after a breakup is to disengage with their ex completely. Disengaging completely means no more calls, emails, chats with their mom, nights spent searching them on social media, writing them letters, wishing things ended differently, and wishing for a second chance. Moving on is the only way to start to heal.
- Moving on from a past relationship can be heartbreaking, yet important to personal growth.
- A good way to get over your ex is to cease communication entirely with them and their family, to give you closure.
- You should also rid your home of anything and everything that reminds you of your ex.
“holding on to a past love clutters up your heart and mind. Letting go opens up the space and possibilities to attract the partner of your dreams”
