Going through a breakup can be one of the hardest things you’ll ever go through. They’re painful and sometimes it feels like you are NEVER going to feel the same again. Like all your days of happiness are gone.
So, let’s give you three steps you can take right now to help you to start getting over that breakup so you can start to heal and move on.
Write out all of the things that you did not like about your partner. And then write down all the things that you didn’t like about yourself in the relationship. By writing out what you didn’t like about your partner you will be able to start the process of learning what doesn’t work with you. AND the key here is to also write out what you didn’t like about yourself.
In any relationship, there are always 2 people and no one is perfect. You played a part, even if it’s a small part. If you take a look at your faults, you will be a stronger person and learn a lot about who you want to be in your next relationship and who you want to be with in your next relationship.
Now I want you to write down what you did like about your partner and then what you did like about yourself in that relationship. The key here is to keep learning from this situation. If you learn what you liked about your partner and yourself, you will be even more clear with what works for you and what doesn’t.
Take time for yourself. This is the time where you should feel zero guilt for taking care of yourself. Do things that you couldn’t do when you were single. Pamper yourself. Meditate. Journal. Try something new. Call some friends you’ve lost touch with. Do whatever makes you happy. A lot of the time in relationships we neglect ourselves, and sometimes we don’t even know who we are anymore really.
So, get to know yourself again and fall in love with yourself. Because that’s the most important relationship you will ever have.
