Very often you might not be the one who really wanted to end a relationship. In such situation, coping up with a breakup will be more difficult. It is not easy to get over someone especially the two of you have been together for a very long time. To survive a relationship that was just a few months old might be easier than the one that has lasted for many years. Fortunately, there are plenty of good tips in mending broken hearts and speeding up the healing process.
No matter where you are now, sitting on a couch in the living room or lying awake on the bed in the middle of the night, the face of your ex continues to show up in your mind. If this is the case, the first thing is to get rid of all the items of that person. Well, it’s certainly more difficult to do than say, but every little thing counts. If you raise a pet together like a puppy, of course you don’t want to get rid of it. But, anything that is given by your ex partner such as a painting or some knick-knack hanging on the wall, they should be boxed up for temporary or removed from the house.
If there are too many items that can remind you of them, you may wonder how to get over the lost love without having to remove all these stuffs. Well, you don’t have to get rid of everything. Just pick those items that give you a strong sense of them.
Perhaps, the two of you picked out the dining table together; perhaps, he or she gave you that wooden sculpture sitting on the side table as a gift; all these items seem to constantly remind you of them and make you feel sad whenever you look at them. To help mending your broken heart and making your situation better, simply remove all items or keep those things away for a while.
While you’re going through some tough time, if the breakup pain is still within your manageable level, then you can start to think of all the bad behaviors of your ex. Of all the survival methods, this is by far the most intense one as it requires you to actually think of your ex on the things that pissed you off. If there is nothing that you disliked, just move on. Usually it is not difficulty for most of us to have a long list of items that we don’t like about someone, especially if he or she is the one who has initiated the breakup and hurt you.
Another effective way to get over a relationship is to start dating again. Some people may disagree with this strategy because they still fall for their ex and aren’t prepared for another relationship. No one says you can’t date even though you’re still in love with someone. You don’t necessarily have to fall in love with that person, but going out with someone is just a way to get over the past love. Hope these tips can help to quickly put your broken heart back together. Take care!
