You can do this!

Relationships end. That’s just a sad truth that we’re all going to have to learn to accept. Love isn’t something that is promised to any of us. None of us are entitled to the love stories that we want especially when we don’t work for it. Now, of course it pains us whenever we have to let go of a love that was near and dear to our hearts. It’s a downright heartbreaking experience whenever we have to permanently say goodbye to a relationship that means so much to us. We pour so much of our hearts and souls into our relationships and still, that may not be enough to sustain us. You could think that you are putting all of the necessary time and effort into a relationship, but when things aren’t meant to be, they’re just not meant to be. You could be doing everything perfect in a relationship, but even the simplest mistake by either one of you could be enough to break the back of your relationship.  

It’s a perfectly okay for you to want to lash out and weep in your own pool of tears. It’s okay to feel totally devastated and depressed at the thought of losing your love. It’s okay to feel as if your entire world has ended. You should be able to deal and cope with your sadness in whatever way that you want. After all, you are the one who is feeling sad, and not anyone else. Don’t be afraid of feeling judged or criticized for being sad. Know that the healthiest way to react to a devastating situation is to be devastated. Just accept that you are human and that you have feelings. Let those feelings come and consume you. Accept the sadness and let it flow through your body like blood. But be very careful to know that your sadness isn’t going to be permanent. It’s very important for you to realize that your devastation is temporary and that you can’t afford to let yourself get lost in a sea of sorry forever. You are eventually going to have to learn to pick yourself back up again and get yourself to a place that resembles some normalcy.

The world is made up of many different kinds of people. So it’s reasonable to assume that people are going to be dealing with their grief in many different ways. It’s very important for us to be able to forge our own paths on the way back to full recuperation. For some others, getting over a devastating heartbreak is as easy as 1-2-3. For others, moving on from a breakup isn’t going to be so simple. It really varies. But regardless of who you are, and what pace you are moving with your recovery, there are a few tips that you can follow to make sure that can get over your relationship in a healthy manner. It’s not about moving faster. It’s not about feeling better right away. It’s about going through the process as healthily as you can to make sure that you are going to turn out alright in the end.

1. Come to terms with the reality of the situation.

The urge to stay in the stage of denial is going to be very strong at first, but you’re going to have to learn to resist it. You will not want to believe that your partner has deliberately chosen to stop loving you at first. But slowly, you are really going to have to come to terms with the fact that things are over and they’re never going to be the same.

2. Let time work its wonders on your emotional wounds.

Sometimes, time ends up being the best teacher. It also ends up becoming the best healers. This piece of advice is particularly valuable for those who are emotionally fragile and who take much longer than others to recover from deep emotionally traumatic experiences. Just take it one day at a time.

3. Take up a new hobby or build a new routine in your life.

One of the best things of being in a relationship is the comfort and stability that you get in your life with another person. And when a relationship ends, all of that stability gets thrown right out the window. So when you’re trying to get over a breakup, you can try building a new routine for yourself that you can fall back on. Take up a new hobby or practice a new routine to keep yourself busy.

4. Surround yourself with great friends who can be there for you whenever you need.

Friends are important. You won’t be able to get through this struggle on your own. Friends will be there to offer you advice, keep you distracted, or even empathize with you whenever you need them to. They are a great resource for whenever you are going through tough times.

5. Accept that sometimes love hurts, but it’s always going to be worth the risk.

And even though this heartbreaking experience almost destroyed your spirit, know that love is always going o be worth the risk of getting hurt. Don’t be afraid to let yourself fall in love again.
