Greetings! Breakups! A subject that we all would like to avoid... But as you know sometimes it is necessary. When a split happens between a couple many emotions are involved. Sometimes it is relief and other times it feels like total devastation. The following is a short list of tips of how to get over a breakup... When it relationship comes to an end it important to take care of yourself and let your spirit heal... Trust God and know you will survive!
suggestions which may help.
1). Take care of yourself. Don't turn to drugs and/or alcohol for comfort, as this will only make the depression worse. Exercise is a far better alternative. Exercise is a natural antidepressant, and a great way to relieve stress. Exercise will also help you get in shape, boost your confidence, and make you more attractive to members of the opposite sex (when you are ready to start dating again).
2). Don't dwell on the past. This is easier said than done... However, obsessing over the person and what went wrong, blaming yourself, etc, will not do any good. All you can really do is learn from the experience, and move on. Try to find activities to keep your mind occupied (particularly activities that don't remind you of your ex).
3). Get out of the house. Sitting at home and becoming a hermit will only depress you more. It is important during this period to spend time with your friends and family. Relaxing and having a fun time with them can help take your mind off things, and help you realize you're still an important person to many. It can help remind you that there's more to life than just your ex.
4). Try not to jump into another relationship too quickly. We've all heard that term, "on the rebound," and there is some truth to it. If you start dating someone else too soon, your judgment may not be as good, as you may be trying to fill a void in your life or find someone to cure the sadness you're still experiencing. However, having said that... If you do happen to meet someone exceptional or extraordinary, don't let them pass you by! Sometimes "the one" can come at the time you least expect it, so if someone extra special comes into your life, don't push them out. If you think you might want to date them, just take things slow.
5). Put yourself first. Don't get in the mindset of wishing you were good enough for the person who dumped you. Instead, tell yourself that the person who dumped you is not good enough for you. Though it may
sound a little cliché, you have to love yourself. If you don't love yourself, you can't really love someone else.
Once again, some if not all of the above is at times easier said than done. However, they are a vital part of a healthy emotional recovery. A good emotional recovery can help you focus on yourself, and be more prepared for the next relationship that comes your way. "
