How to Cope With a Breakup Did you recently break up with your boyfriend or girlfriend? Do you feel down and depressed and are you looking for proven techniques on coping with a breakup? If so, I can help. I've been through several breakups in the past and I can give you some proven techniques to use right now. Let's begin. Instructions o 1 Realize that it will take time for your heart to heal. It will take time coping with a breakup. After all, you have a lot of feelings for your ex and those feelings aren't going to just disappear overnight. However, you will find that if you give yourself some time, those hurtful feelings will vanish with time and you'll realize that it isn't the end of the world because the two of you have parted. o 2 Concentrate on your needs. If you're like most folks, when you were with your ex, you probably concentrated on their needs. Well, now it is time for you to concentrate on pleasing yourself. Therefore, put your needs first and do the things that you neglected when you were with your ex. For instance, go shopping and buy yourself some new clothes. Get your hair fixed or have a manicure. Treat yourself to a movie or play but do something that you enjoy without worrying if your significant other would have approved. o 3 Keep A Journal. Coping with a breakup is similar to mourning the loss of a loved one. It hurts and the pain is real. Therefore, you can deal with these feelings by writing them down in a journal. Therefore, every night, write down how you felt during the day. Write down any positive or negative feelings that you felt and what caused those feelings and how you reacted. For instance, if you run into a friend who casually invites you and your ex out for dinner and this causes you to feel sad, write it down. On the same token, if you spent the entire afternoon laughing with friends and didn't feel sad at all, write that down too. Simply pour your heart into your journal and heal your heart in the process. o 4 Surround yourself with supportive people. Spend precious time with friends and family members. Not only do they love you but they can help you through this difficult time. After all, they don't want you to feel miserable and will likely do all they can to "help you feel better." Don't forget to confide in them about your feelings and have as much fun with them as you can. After all, you don't want to be miserable but you do want to acquire love and support. o 5 Get rid of reminders. Eliminate all signs of your ex. Not only will these things conjure up hurtful feelings but they will cause you to feel worse. Therefore, pack up all items that remind you of your ex and put them out of sight. If you can, throw them away. If you don't want to destroy them, put them in the attic or give them to a friend for safekeeping. After all, this will keep you from reminiscing about the past and help you focus on the present and future. o 6 In conclusion, a breakup isn't an easy thing to cope with but it's part of life. Nearly everyone has gone though it at one point and they made it through. If you follow the previous tips, you can get over a breakup too. Good luck and know that things will get better.
