11 Ways to Get Past Painful Break-ups

Breakups are really hard. I showed you why breakups are painful in my latest post which you can find here. In this post I am going to show you how to get past a painful break up.
  • Purge your ex from all of your contacts

  • Stay off of social media for a few weeks

  • Pack up photos or other reminders of your ex

  • Spend time with those who love you. Don't isolate even if that is all you want to do

  • Journal about your feelings

This photo was actually taken by my daughter (who is awesome). You can find here blog here. 

  • Write a letter to your ex (but don't send it). This is just for you
  • Acknowledge the good things about your past relationship (but don't over-romanticize it)
  • Spend time doing things that recharge you
  • Give it time. Rushing into a new relationship will not solve the problem 
  • Make a list of your goals and dreams. This will help you redefine the life you want and get you thinking about the possibilities.
  • Make a list of 10 things you like about yourself. This can help you develop some self-compassion. You have a lot to offer the universe. Yes, you!

Here is a little infographic to sum up the post.
