Isn’t it so hard to wake up and start a new beginning without “the love of your life”??
Well, I know most of us can relate especially when you’re trying to forget the love of your life and trying to be a better person.
It’s actually hard to get over them right after a breakup..it can be even worse if you have to see them every day after the split.
Whether you’re in the same class, same church, the same hostel or even just happen to be close family friends, it can be hard to ignore the fact that your ex is always there.
If you’re not sure how to get over your former prince charming or ugly duckling, here are a few things you can do to get them out of mind even if they’re not necessarily out of sight.
Keep yourself busy
One of the best ways to get over an ex is to distract yourself by doing things you love to do.
Whether it’s getting more involved in school organizations or learning a new hobby, investing your time into other interests is not only an effective distraction, but it can also be extremely productive.
By putting your happiness into an activity rather than a person, you’ll be able to ensure you’re in control of your emotions.
Keep it short and simple
Whether you ended on bad terms or good terms, you always have to keep the communication to a minimum. It’s good to stay polite and have a little small talk here and there, but for your own sake, it’s better to keep it at just that.
You never want to show your anger or resentment by ignoring them or simply being rude to them. It’s important to be the mature one and accept that things simply didn’t work out.
You definitely don’t want to keep your conversations deep and lengthy because it could lead to lingering feelings because, let’s be honest here, after any breakup, it’s nearly impossible to become best friends right after.
You always want to make sure to wait until the feelings are gone to become friends. Sometimes, just keep off to allow yourself grow because even after you become friends and that friendship energy isn’t reciprocated, you’ll definitely get hurt again x 1000!!!!
Don’t look for them
We all know the feeling of looking for your crush in a crowded room or in a church. However, when it comes to looking for an ex in a crowded room, all it does is to make things worse.
Most of the time you’ll just find yourself overthinking every single move that they make as well as stalking on their social media, turning your read receipt on just to watch their statuses, checking their dp, etc. The less you see them, the easier it’ll be to get your mind off of them.
Surround yourself with people who care about you
Whenever you’re going through a rough patch, the people you surround yourself with is really important. It could be your roomies, course mates, etc. When you’re faced with seeing an ex every day, the best way to get over them is to surround yourself with people who love, care and think about your growth.
Focus on yourself
When it comes down to it, a healthy way to get over an ex is to take the time to focus on yourself. With all the time you spent in a relationship, we know how hard it can be to be on your own and start destroying all the babies you made in your head.
However, the best part about a break up is the fact that you’ll come out of it so much stronger. It’s important to remember you’ll never truly be alone…
