How to Get Over a Breakup


It is always hard when a relationship comes to an end and it is even harder to get over it and move on. No matter how much you wanted things to work; there are ways to get over a breakup. It is not going to be easy to get over this hurdle. You will go through feelings of hurt, angry and sadness. But the sooner you start the healing process, the quicker the wounds will heal.

One of the best ways to get through a breakup is journaling. Putting your thoughts down on paper will make you feel better. Your head is more than likely jumbled with all kinds of emotions about your relationship ending and putting those emotions and thoughts onto paper just lets all your emotions flow.

Hanging out with your friends is one of the best things you can do after the end of a relationship. You will feel so comfortable and at ease because you are around people that love you and know you. Most times after a breakup, friends will come to your aid and offer their support in the healing process. They may offer you a dinner out or a night on the town. Take them up on their hospitality. You are going to need people to talk to and they are there to listen and offer words of encouragement.

The last thing you want to do after a split is to rush right into another relationship. These are called rebound relationships and they rarely work out. If you get invited out to dinner or drinks, take that person up on their offer but do not get too attached too quickly. It may feel good to get a fresh start with someone new but you first have to get over your previous relationship prior to starting a new one.

Allow yourself time to grieve. Grieving is the process of working through the heartache and the hurt. People may think that grieving is only when someone close to you dies and while this is true, the end of a relationship just died and while it is obviously not the same, you still need time to process the anger and the hurt. The sooner that you move through the grieving process, the sooner that you can accept the fact that the relationship is over and it is time for you to move on.

It is important to take advantage of being single but not by getting into another relationship. Maybe there was a museum that you wanted to visit but your ex wanted to watch the football game instead. Now is the time to take advantage of visiting that museum. Maybe there was a movie you wanted to see but he said it was a chick movie. Now you can go see it. You don’t have to answer to anyone but you. You are now able to go where you want and when you want. So get out there and enjoy your newly found freedom.
