How To Deal With Break Up
Break ups can be hard, but you can make it easier on yourself if you know how to deal with break up. A break up occurs when one of the people in a relationship decides that they no longer want to be involved with their significant other. If you're on the receiving end of this news, it can be hard to take. A break up can even be hard to take if you were the one to end things.
- Give yourself time to grieve The grieving process is important after a break up, especially if the break up occurred after a long term relationship. You need to acknowledge that the break up happened and accept that it is painful. Failure to do will will simply draw out the process of getting over your break up.
- Refrain from contacting your ex for at least a while During the healing process of getting over a break up, contacting your ex is a big no-no. You won't be able to get over them if you're calling them up all the time and wanting to know how they're doing.
- Use your social networking sites to your advantage While it isn't completely necessary to delete your ex off of your friends list if you don't want to. If you don't want to see your ex's updates on your news feed, it is possible to hide them from your news feed without totally deleting them. However, it is recommended to change your relationship status to "single" and take down pictures of the two of you together.
- Don't keep their things around your house Over the course of a relationship, it's normal for possessions to be spread through both peoples' homes. As soon as possible after the break up, gather all of their things and return them to your ex, preferably in a neutral place, such as a mutual friend's house or a coffee shop. Ask that they bring any things of yours that they may have at their house.
