There are songs written about it, and great films created in its honor— love is one of the most popular topics connected to the human condition. However, as beautiful as love might be, it can also come with a lot of heartache. Despite how beautiful a love story may begin, many people find themselves in a tumultuous divorce at one point, wondering if they’ll ever find happiness again.
The short answer is yes you will, and it’s very likely you’ll be happier than you ever were before. It all comes down to how you handle yourself during the breakup. Here we’ll go over some of the best methods for coming out on top, and handling your breakup like a boss. Let’s dive in.
Let it Out
The first step is letting your feelings out. Holding all those tears in isn’t going to do anyone any favors. So, you’re better off taking some deep breaths and letting out a good cry. Even though it might feel like the tears may never stop once they start, the good news is they will eventually run out.
It’s important that you get them out in order to move on to the next stage of your life. It’s only once you’ve released your pain that you can truly embrace all of the joy that life has to offer.
Practice Self Care
Go out and do something that makes you truly feel great. After all, why bother with feeling sad, when you can do something that makes you feel happy? The next time you start to feel yourself reminiscing about how happy you were once before, take action instead of wallowing in your sadness. Go get a massage, go for a run, or take a hot bath. Self-care doesn’t always have to mean buying something, but rather an action that brings us pleasure and satisfaction.
See Your Friends
Even though it may seem like the smart thing to do is to sit around and feel sad, the truth is that it’s only going to make you feel worse. Keep yourself surrounded by good friends and family, and it won’t just keep your mind busy, but it will remind you that you’re worthy, you’re loved, and better days are just around the corner. It’s so much more difficult to navigate something difficult like a breakup if we don’t feel like we have a support system. So rather than shutting yourself off, welcome people in, and accept their comfort and support.
Don’t Jump Into Another Relationship too Soon
Even though you may be excited to get out there and meet someone else, the truth is that rushing too quickly into something else could be a huge mistake not just for you, but for the other person. Chances are you need time to digest your past relationship and move on from whatever you’re feeling. Jumping too quickly into something else could wind up hurting yourself and someone else in the end.
