There are many common mistakes people make when they’re trying to overcome the difficulties associated with breakups. Trying to seek closure that may never come is an example of a behavior that needs to be addressed, because this closure may never truly come. You should also avoid trying to befriend your ex, especially right after the breakup in most circumstances, because an ex typically does not have the ability to make a genuine friend in your life at this time.
- Be sure to not attempt to be friends right away, as this never initially works.
- It is important to realize that you may never get closure, and that it is important to accept this fact.
- Give his stuff back as soon as possible so you’re not using it as an excuse to see the other person.
“Wanting to get back together is a fair feeling to have. Even if you do end up reconciling, the relationship will undoubtedly be different. It is still important to take some time without speaking in order to mourn the relationship and contemplate how you really feel.”
