Despite the fact that breaking up with someone is hard, there are ways to get through the situation and eventually get over it. Instead of wishing harm to the person with whom you’ve broken up, instead, try to think of them as a good friend, and wish them luck as they move forward. Just because someone was in your life for now doesn’t mean that they are on the same path as you, and that means that sometimes, people move on without you or in a different direction. Keeping this in mind can help you to move forward. And, finally, focusing on yourself and the great life you have can help you to feel happier and more able to move on after you break up with someone.
- Try to be happy for your ex. Being mad or wishing them ill-will does nothing to help you move forward.
- Think of the relationship as a good lesson. Figure out what you’ve learned and move forward positively.
- Spend time getting to know yourself. Understanding who you are, and being happy with that, will help you when the right person comes along.
“It’s easy to fall into the rut of anger and wishing ill will onto your ex, but the only person this really hurts is yourself.”
