Going through a breakup is rough for anyone, and many people find themselves feeling a bit down about themselves. It is important to take a look at how you felt before you met this person, and find ways to restore that self-esteem so that you can go about your life in the same healthy and stable manner that you were before you became involved with said person. Reawakening your self-worth will give you the happiness and comfort you need when going through these hard times.
- If you literally feel worthless after a romantic break-up then it’s possible that your sense of self-esteem became too enmeshed and dependant on that relationship.
- The best long-term relationships tend to exist when the two members have healthy and fulfilling lives apart from the relationship itself.
- Analyze how you felt about yourself before the broken relationship, paying attention to if the view was positive and if it was slowly skewed by the relationship.
“If you find yourself truly unable to move on after your break up or divorce, the hit to your self-esteem may be keeping your grief process stuck in first gear.”
