Your ex is your ex, for a reason. And you need to keep that in mind. Very few relationships will last you a lifetime. Some are just seasonal. Certain relationships need to end so that the ones that are permanent and fulfilling have the adequate space to be anchored in your life. Dealing with a breakup is never easy. And know that you are not alone in your pain. But also know that you can’t stay there forever and need to heal and move forward.
1. Don’t stay in touch
Now is not the time to stay in touch! I repeat, now is not the time to stay in touch! Why do you need to know what’s going on in their lives? It doesn’t concern you and it really shouldn’t affect you. Don’t let your curiosity get the best of you. Keep your distance, don’t ask what they’ve been up to, don’t call or text them and most importantly, MIND YOUR BUSINESS.
2. Let go of the things that remind you of the person
I know this is hard to do, but if you are serious about forgetting the person, you need to courageously let go of everything that connects you, including memories. Stop reminiscing about your good times together. Don’t get lost in your head in thoughts about them. And get rid of the things that connect you to that person.
3. Stay off social media
This sounds impossible, but it will help you so much. Don’t stalk your ex or try and watch their lives. The only reason you are checking is because you want to know if your ex is thinking about you or misses you too. So get off social media for a couple of weeks or months and use that time to do something more constructive.
4. Don’t talk to their friends or family
The only reason you are talking to his friends or family is because you hope they relay messages about you to him. And they will but it will probably make no difference or only aggravate the situation. It is like asking for reinforcement from them to help you get back together.
