Ways to get over a breakup

14130487382_b859368d45As the old song says, “Breaking up is hard to do,” but how do you pick up the pieces after a relationship is over?

Here are 3 ways to soften the blow and get back to being your unbeatable self!

1. Don’t Try To Replace Him

A lot of women make the mistake of instantly dating once they break up with a guy. They work on the replacement theory, and that having someone is better than having nobody. The minute their relationship is over, they’re on the hunt for a new guy. They can’t stand the thought of being alone. They believe that by jumping into a new relationship, they won’t have to feel the pain that comes with the old one ending. The truth is the pain of a break up is good for you, and something you NEED to experience.

2. It’s Like A Tunnel – You Have To Go Through It

While you’re processing the end of a relationship, you grow into a better, stronger version of yourself. You need to take the time to figure out what you’re feeling, why you’re feeling it, and understanding what went wrong with the relationship. You don’t want to make the same mistakes again, and this is your chance to learn.
This is your chance to develop as a woman. You should embrace it. As much as it hurts, this time is so important and special.

3. Empower Yourself

You need to empower yourself after a relationship. Give yourself the time you deserve for YOU. Start understanding yourself better. Reconnect with yourself, and who you are. When you start to understand what makes you tick, you become the most powerful version of yourself possible.

You go from being “we” to “me” again.

Don’t be afraid of the pain. It’s there to help you grow. It’s going to show you what you need to do next.
