7. Stay away from the things that remind you of them.
Clear the emotional clutter and throw away, donate, or hide all that reminds you of them. Delete romantic emails, texts, voice notes, and even photos on your cellphone. Every time you look at something that makes you recall the relationship, you let yourself doubt if ending it was a mistake. You’ll miss your ex and start daydreaming about what a beautiful life it would be if you got back together, only to have your new reality knock on your door.
