I’m so excited to share this weeks video with you because I had the opportunity to try something new 🙂 I had a viewer write in with a really interesting question around how to get over a breakup and I couldn’t wait to tackle it!
Relationships are definitely one of the hardest things to navigate in life and when they end, we can’t help but compare ourselves to how the other person is handling it. We want to be able to bounce back quickly and move on like nothing happened. Much easier said than done, am I right?
There are some key factors that play a huge role in how quickly you move on after a breakup and it’s really important to give yourself the right amount of time to go through them.
Click the video below to discover the one essential step you need to take to be able to fully move on after a breakup!
5 Key Steps in Getting Over a Breakup:
Grieve the relationship
As much as it sucks and as much as it hurts, it’s really important you take that time to properly grieve the end of the relationship. If you choose to push those emotions aside and not deal with them, you’re not allowing yourself to fully heal your heart and you will find it challenging to open up and create a deep connection with someone new.
Stop social media stalking your ex
We’ve all done it. Curiosity always gets the better of us and we want to know what our ex is up to and if they’re enjoying life without us. We secretly want them to be in hibernation mode with their heart in a million pieces because in some twisted way that makes us feel better. No good has ever come from seeing how much fun they are having on social media. We’re just making ourselves feel worse, and remember – social media tends to only show the highlights of peoples lives. You have no real clue how they are spending most of their time.
Make a “FUN” list
Start thinking about you and all the amazing ways you can spend your free time now! Make a list of all the things you’ve always wanted to experience and then put them into action! This allows you to grow in new ways and also helps to keep your mind focused on healthier habits.
It’s really important to take time and reflect on the relationship and what you learned from it. You might realize you’re holding onto things you need to forgive yourself for. Maybe you didn’t like how you reacted in certain situations, or said things you didn’t mean. Allow yourself to learn from these experiences and then let them go. It’s not going to do you any good to hold onto those feelings.
Surround yourself with your favourite people
This one is super important! A support system is key. You don’t have to go through these tough times alone. That’s what friends and family are for. Call them up when you need a shoulder to cry on or someone to hear you out. Don’t forget that Therapists and Coaches are a great way to seek support as well if you find you need someone a bit more objective.
