5 Ways to recover from a bad breakup

Some breakups are tough while others are quick and effortless. For those who are going through a tough time dealing with a bad breakup, this one’s for you. Breakups are a dealbreaker, they break your heart and tear you apart. Nothing seems to make you happy and your days have suddenly become so dull and sad.

You soon realize you are stuck in a bad breakup phase and even though you might want to desperately get out of it, nothing seems to be working out. So, here are a few tips to help you overcome a bad breakup hangover.

Accept the reality

The first step is to accept the situation and not live in a delusion that one day things will get better and your ex will come back. Accept the current situation and give yourself time to move on. You can only let go after you have accepted that this relationship was never going to work out. 

Don’t rebel

Don’t rebel against what isn’t meant for you. If it is not meant to be, it probably is best to let it go and move on. Don’t let your past ruin your present because you are holding on to something that wasn’t going to last forever anyway. 

Give it time

Time heals everything. Give it time and don’t rush anything. One should never rush their feelings. Don’t make it sound that you are fine even when you are not. It takes time to move on and you can take as much time as you want to heal and get back.

Embrace it

Embrace each and every emotion that you going through. Don’t neglect your feelings. Being vulnerable at this stage is normal and you don’t always have to show a tough exterior. It is okay to have a meltdown. Embrace the pain you are dealing with and process everything you are going through. Once you’ve rock bottom, you will only go up. 

Distance yourself from your ex

That’s right, the most important thing to do right away after a breakup is to break all communications with your ex. Do not get tempted to text back or drunk dial them. That might give you a temporary sense of happiness but it will ruin everything in the long run.
