breakupHow To Deal With A Breakup

Even when you’ve suspected that you were headed for a breakup, it doesn’t make the end of a long-term relationship any easier. After spending years dedicating time, energy, and love to one specific person, it can be heartbreaking to remove them so thoroughly from your life.

You might have had good reasons for breaking up – unhappiness, infidelity, or wanting different things – but that doesn’t mean that you don’t grieve for the love you have lost. The breakup of a relationship can turn your whole world upside down and trigger all sorts of painful and unsettling emotions – confusion, isolation, and fearful about the future – but there ways of coming to terms with the end of your relationship.

Let yourself grieve

You have lost someone. No one died, and your now ex-partner is still healthy, but you have lost someone. You’ve lost a partner, a companion, a lover, and a friend all in one day. Whether it was gradual, or you were blindsided by the breakup, you’ve still lost someone who was incredibly important to you. You’ve also lost a future, because the person you cared about will no longer be in it with you, and that can be scary.

It’s okay to take some time to mourn your loss. Give yourself permission to feel and to function at a less than optimal level for a period of time. You may not be able to be quite as productive on the job or care for others in exactly the way you’re accustomed to for a little while.

Let your friends help you

It might feel like you just want to be alone with your grief, but this is a time to let your friends help you. They don’t expect you to be your usual, happy self, and being around people who love you might eventually give you the perspective you need to move on. Whether you want your friends around to help you figure out your feelings about the breakup, or you want them to take your mind off things, they can give you the support you need to get through this tough time. However, if you don’t feel comfortable seeing your friends because they’re also friends with your ex, then maybe reach out to a counselor or a group. Despite how much you might want it, solitude is the last thing you need right now.

Figure out what your new relationship is with your ex

One aspect of your relationship is over, but now you need to figure out where you both stand; especially if it was a long-term relationship, a marriage, or there are kids involved. If you’re both certain that you can’t be married anymore, you need to start contacting Arnold Wadsworth & Coggins Divorce Attorneys to start dividing the assets, but if all you need is some time apart, then establish some ground rules for your separation – such as whether you can see other people, or if you’ll stay in touch during the time apart – and then decide when you’ll get together to sort things out. If the relationship is definitely over, you also need to decide if you’re going to part ways completely, or try to stay civil for the sake of your mutual friends or your children. Establishing boundaries makes it easier for you to focus on healing yourself, and not getting involved in your ex’s drama until you feel like you can handle it.

Take care of yourself

As tempting as it might be to just fall apart after a breakup, it’s not the best way to aid your recovery. Instead, take some time each day to look after yourself, just as you would any friend who was going through a breakup. Spend time with your friends, pamper yourself, go for walks, listen to music, or discover new interests. It’s not just about keeping busy, it’s about learning who you are outside of your relationship and showing yourself that you will be okay without your ex.

Don’t apologise for your feelings

It can take a long time to completely get over a breakup, especially if you were together for a long time. No one should expect you to be completely healed after a certain period of time, and you do not have to apologise for missing your ex on your birthday or during the holidays – you shared so many birthdays with them that it will be a while before you’re used to not seeing them there. No one can tell you when you should be over your breakup.
