Is There An Easy Way How To Heal From A Break Up?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You've just been in a break up that you weren't keen on having. The pain you're feeling now is almost unbearable. It's a pain that is so deep it's almost consuming and one, surprisingly, that you physically feel. This is not what you thought breaking up or getting dumped would feel like and it's something you don't want to feel right now – much less ever again.

The thing is that many people in your situation go to extreme measures to avoid feeling this kind of pain. They don't want it. They feel that the rewards of love are hardly worth risking this kind of pain for. But, you know better than that don't you. You know that the rewards of a good, happy, and healthy relationship far outweigh the risks – even when you're hurting like this. The problem with healing though is that it's rarely easy. It's a process and that takes time. But there are things you can do that will make the process easier to survive and may even have you coming out stronger on the other side of things.

The first thing you need to do is get rid of all the constant reminders you have of your ex. That doesn't mean you need to destroy them, give them away, or anything like that. But you do need to box them up and get them out of sight. You know how it feels when you've been confronted with an unexpected memory of your ex and the time you spent together. It can feel like a knife twisting in your heart or a hit just below the belt. It's not a good feeling and can significantly delay your healing process. You'll never get over your ex if you do this and will constantly be plagued by thoughts of how to get your ex back.

The next thing you need to do is get busy getting a life. That isn't meant as an insult but just goes to show that getting out and doing things helps your frame of mind much better than sitting at home dwelling on whatever it is that you no longer have. Make new friends, go out on the town, and get involved in the community. These are small steps that can help you make new friends and get a completely new lease on life.

When you do these things you'll find that your ex will soon be wondering what's up with you and what's behind the changes you've made. It may even have your ex wanting to know how to get back with you. You never know how huge an impact small moves can make when it comes to getting over an ex or getting your ex back as well.
