Getting Over Being Dumped For Someone Else
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It's not fun to get dumped for someone else by your ex, and it's hard to feel like the pain will pass.  Grieving over a relationship is an inevitable part of the healing process.  Here are 3 things to keep in mind when you're getting over being dumped for someone else.

1. Know that it is not the end of the world.

Right now, you're hurting over the breakup.  This is a normal, healthy part of the healing process.  It feels like the end of the world, but I promise you, things will get better.

Once again, you'll be able to enjoy your favorite foods, hobbies, and hang out with your friends.  In fact, you should be trying to get out and be with your friends as much as possible; it will help ease the pain of the breakup.

But no matter what happens with you and your ex, what you're feeling right now is normal and even good in a way, even though it hurts.  But it means you are a compassionate, loving person, and that's something you should be proud of.  It means you had the courage to love someone else, and that is a remarkable, worthy thing.

2. Give yourself time to heal.

Sometimes, the hardest part of a breakup is just the length of time it takes to get over being dumped for someone else.  It really hurts when you see your ex with someone new.  If it's any consolation, that person is most likely a rebound relationship - someone your ex is with so that they don't have to feel so much pain over the breakup.

Sometimes you might want to try a rebound relationship yourself, so long as the person you're with knows you're just coming out of a breakup, and you don't really know what you want yet.

But the important thing is to let yourself heal.  Single or dating, you need to give yourself compassion.  Make time for yourself to unwind and relax every evening.  Look at the breakup as a major life change, an event which for many people is traumatic. 

Traumatic events take time to recover from, especially for long term relationships.  The longer you were with your ex, the harder it is to recover.

3. There will be someone new, if you and your ex don't get together.

You may get back with your ex eventually; you may not.  No matter what happens, though, you will find love again.  I know that seems hard to believe, but it's true.  Breakups are extremely difficult, but after you recover, you'll be that happy person you were before your life got thrown out of balance.

You'll be able to enjoy life again.  It isn't the end of the world to lose one person.  There are many people out there who want to know you, and who would love to share your company.  Getting yourself out there again is something that will really help in getting over being dumped for someone else.

My name is Cadinella, exreunitingspellhome@live. com DR OSOBA is the best spell caster. I was in a relationship with my ex boyfriend we loved and cherished ourselves for 4 years and every thing was going on smoothly but last year,we both had misunderstanding and he told me that the relationship is over and that he is fed up with me, I begged him because I love him so much but he refused me. My friend told me about a spell caster that helped her in getting her relationship back a long time ago, a good job in any of his endeavor but at first I was scared but I have to give this a trial because I love him very much and I am not willing to loose him to any woman, or for anything so I ordered returning my love spell from this great spell caster that made me a happy woman again. All I want to say is THANK YOU DR OSOBASE for getting my ex back to me with much love. I am testifying to this great spell temple for the great work he has done for me I am grateful.
