Large

Dealing with a breakup is hard. You lose someone who you loved and are in a vulnerable position. Every step of the healing process can dictate how long and well you heal from this loss. Whether you are hurt, confused, sad, or indifferent, processing your emotions and figuring out how to move past this heartbreak in a healthy and timely manner is the ultimate goal. Follow this guide and read the dos and don’ts of dealing with a breakup

Do write

Journaling will help you process your emotions better. Additionally, writing out a list about what went wrong can be therapeutic and is a helpful way to remind yourself why you ended and how you shouldn’t go back when you begin to romanticize them and the relationship. 

Don’t stalk

Stalking your ex never ends well and will prevent you from moving on. Although it is hard going from knowing almost everything about someone to knowing nothing, stalking the person is not the answer. It leads to misinterpretation and keeps you stuck at the healing stage. 

Do remove them from social media 

Seeing the updates of your ex will leave you hung up and unable to let go. Not only that, you will feel the need to prove how much better off you are without them. Your social media should be a place you enjoy sharing with friends and families, don’t ruin it for yourself by keeping your ex on there.

Don’t talk badly

Talking badly about your ex, whether online or even with your friends, is risky. Not only is it a sign of bitterness and immaturity, but what someone chooses to do once a significant relationship is over tells you a lot about their character, so don’t be the childish one. 

Do focus on yourself 

Allow yourself to feel everything you need to feel, keep yourself busy, and work on yourself. Now that you’re out of a relationship, you can be as selfish as you’d like and only think for yourself. Take advantage of how you no longer have to think about someone else’s needs.

Don’t move on too fast 

If you jump from one relationship to another, you don’t allow yourself to heal properly. It prevents you from truly and fully getting over your ex and will cause you to hurt yourself and the person you’re currently dating.

Do reflect

Instead of talking trash, choose to reflect on the lessons you learned from this person and your relationships. Even if you believe you can’t get anything out of a relationship, you can learn lessons that prevent you from making the same mistakes again.
