5 Steps To Get Over Your Ex

step to get over your ex

There’s no easy way to say it—breaking up sucks. Ending a relationship is sad, exhausting, and emotionally draining. But it’s hard to know how to move on when you’re feeling like a failure and still thinking of your ex. When you’re really feeling lost, it can help to have a little structure. To help give you some, here are six steps for how to move on from the end of a relationship.


Dispose of your ex’s possession

 If you keep anything at all, be sure to think of it a token of friendship, not of your relationship. If they bring bad memories, then throw them out or dispose of them in any way you desire.

Enlist your support system.

You know those friends and family members who keep checking in and asking how you’re doing? They’re not just doing it to be nice; they genuinely care about you and want to offer support however they can. Take them up on their offers of grabbing drinks, having dinner, or seeing a movie. If you want to talk about the breakup with them, they’re all ears. If not, just enjoy the company; they’ll be there when you’re ready.

Avoid contacting your ex.

There comes a time after your breakup when you’ll wonder, Can I be friends with my ex? And in most cases, the answer is no. Simply put, trying to form a friendship with someone after ending a romantic relationship with them never works out quite the way you picture it. No matter how positive your intentions; someone will inevitably end up getting hurt. If you’re feeling the urge to text your ex when you’re sad, or call them just to hear their voice, put that thought out of your mind. Instead, call a friend to talk, turn on music to distract your thoughts, or take a walk to get some fresh air. Your heart will thank you.

Be introspective

 Quite a bit of research indicates the key to recovering from a breakup is focusing inward on yourself. Spend some time re-working your goals, values, and reminding yourself who you are. Brush up on your independent skills and do whatever you can to make yourself strong.

Do something nice for yourself.

They say you shouldn’t make any big purchases or life decisions immediately after a breakup. You can, however, indulge in small changes that will boost your mood and put you in a different mindset. Treat yourself to a new haircut, a spa day, or those new shoes you’ve been eyeing. A little retail therapy never hurt anyone. You deserve it!

    will like to use this platform to share my experience although the story is quit long i will try to be brief. My husband and i have been married for Four years now, we have been doing relatively fine although is mother doesn’t like me,she has been trying to separate us ever since we got married. Out of the blue my husband started acting weird, he doesn’t eat home anymore nor relate with or play with our son. He came home one fateful day and said he wanted a divorce, i was so heart broken and confused i didn’t know what to do. I was surfing through the net one faithful day and i came across an article about how to cope with divorce and all that. after reading it someone commented on how she was helped by a spiritualist/spell castor who helped her in saving her marriage, she dropped the spell caster email address so i decided to contact him. He promised to help me in getting my husband to love me like before and he promised me that he wouldn’t want the divorce once he is done with the spell. surprisingly he made it happened and i didn’t spent much. All i am trying to say is sometimes we need a little help in keeping the ones we love, i am not ashamed of what i did plus it doesn’t have a negative effect on him.
