It happens to the best of us.
Relationships are tough; we all know that. And today, as much as I’m going to be giving you advice, I’m really here to reassure you that you’re going to be okay getting over a bad break up.
The way you’re feeling right now, and the reasons you’re feeling like this are actually far more complex than most people will ever appreciate. And even with the best of intentions, aside from being handed a bucket of Ben & Jerry’s and a shovel of a spoon, it’s unlikely that you’re ever really getting the help and advice you really need from those around you.
We all know how easy it can be to romanticize the better parts of a past relationship, trying to convince yourself that it really wasn’t that bad. But I urge you to stay strong.
We had a comment on one of our articles on ‘Players‘ from Denise, who said, “Trust your intuition!” I really think that this advice is applicable in so many areas of dating and relationships, and keep that in the back of your mind until you’re well and truly over him.
For this article, there are 4 steps I really want to focus on for getting over a bad break up. And it all starts with a disappearing act…
Get Away From Everything
Just get away from everything for a few days. Disappear and give yourself a few days to get some space. You might choose to take one or two friends with you, but this really should be some alone time. The more people you have around you, the more the breakup will be brought up, the more explaining you’ll be expected to do and the more people will gossip.
Nothing is more valuable than how you feel, so just drop whatever’s stopping you, and give yourself that gift of a few days freedom.
Once you’re back in the real world, it’s imperative to focus your attention on something productive. The last thing you want is to end up sitting in your living room, aimlessly flicking through thousands of TV channels looking for some inspiration.
A breakup gives you license to give yourself a blank slate and a fresh start. So what are those things you’ve been meaning to do for ages; those things that have been New Years resolutions for the last 5 years? Get out of your usual routine. Clear and organize your personal space so you’re left feeling refreshed and prepared for the new things to come.
Utilize Your Emotions
I really believe that every intense emotion we have is just energy. When most people are getting over a bad break up, they tend to turn to anger first, blaming the person they were with for everything that’s happened.
The last thing you want to do is bottle this energy up, but rather than projecting all it onto someone, I encourage you to write. Keep a journal, and dedicate 10 minutes a day to furiously writing everything that comes into your mind. Write for the entire 10 minutes, don’t stop to think, don’t go back and edit anything – all grammar, spelling and punctuation can be ignored and what you will soon find is there is this great release of pent up energy.
Getting Over A Bad Break Up Requires A Personal Plan
The last step you need to take to get over a bad break up is to create yourself a roadmap. This is the only way that you’re ever going to get your life back on track, the way you want it to be.
Whilst it might be hard to believe right now with the way you’re feeling, you have to keep reminding yourself that thousands of other women feel like this every day. Stay strong, keep those who love you and make you feel good close. And remember that there are always plenty of fish in the sea!
When it comes to getting over a bad break up, the more hints and tips you have at your disposal, the easier you’ll find it to move on and meet more men.
