1. Allow yourself time to grieve.
It's normal to feel sad, angry, and confused after a breakup. Allow yourself to feel these emotions, and don't try to bottle them up. Talking to a friend, family member, therapist, or anyone else you trust can help you process your emotions and feel supported. It takes time to get over a breakup. Don't expect to feel better overnight. Be patient with yourself, and allow yourself the time and space you need to heal.
2. Take care of yourself.
Make sure you're eating healthy, getting enough sleep, and exercising. Taking care of yourself will help you feel better both physically and emotionally. Use this time to focus on your own needs and goals. Spend time with friends and family, pursue your hobbies, and do things that make you hella happy.
3. Avoid contact with your ex at all cost.
It's important to give yourself time and space to heal. Avoid contact with your ex, both in person and online (I mean it). It will help you avoid temptation. It's sooo easy to fall back into old habits when you're in contact with your ex. You may be tempted to text them, call them, or even meet up with them. Avoiding contact will help you resist temptation and stay focused on moving on.
Breakups are never easy, but they can be an opportunity for growth. It's important to remember that the relationship is over and that there's no point in dwelling on the past. Focus on the present and on your future. With time and effort, you will heal and move on <3
