There is a time when the whole world seems dark. Everything seems to be going against you. The relationship you valued the most no longer exists. You have time on your hands, and you don’t know what to do. You don’t know whom to talk to. Well, every cloud has a silver lining.  You just need to be strong and move on. It’s easier said than done but there are a few things you can do to handle your break up.


Don’t Blame Yourself for Your Broken Relationship

The First step you need to follow while getting over a break up is not blaming yourself. It’s no body’s fault. What happened was inevitable. Even if you were the one that took the step and broke up with your partner, don’t blame yourself for a broken relationship. You put an end to a long time of misery. Look at it as a job well done. If you are the one that got dumped, you can’t blame yourself either, it’s probably for the better.


Stop Thinking About Your Ex and Get Busy

Get busy with your life. If you go to school, take classes after school or join some club which will keep you busier. If you are working, put in some extra hours if you can – you will only end up making a little extra money. Hang out with your friends. You may choose to avoid places you used to go to with your ex Boyfriend/ Girlfriend, as the main step of getting over your ex is to not put yourself in situations that are going to bring up emotional memories.


Make it a Clean Break

Even if you have decided to be friends later on, make sure your relationship is over in one clean break. If you plan to continue talking to your ex partner, make sure you avoid doing so initially. Give yourself a little time. Don’t call him/ her up for little unresolved issues here and there. If you have anything in mind, call up and finish it in one clean go. Don’t wait a week without contacting your ex and then call them for stupid stuff, like you left a pair of shoes at their house you never wore in the first place. Your just making excuses to contact them, don’t do that.


Meet Friends

You may want to start meeting your friends again. Get back in touch with those loyal friends who got ignored during the course of your relationship. Go for movies, lunches and dinners. Once in a while go out partying, who knows you may meet a new person to date. If you are into sports, invite your friends over for a ball game or something. Rough games such as football and whatnot can really make you feel better as they help in venting anger.

Life is too precious to waste on a relationship that doesn’t matter anymore. The sooner you get over your heart break, the better it is for you and for the people around you. Your family and friends are always there to support you. Confide in them and take their help in overcoming this emotional obstacle.

Handling a break up is not an easy thing to do for most people – sometimes the best thing that you can do in regards to how to handle a break up, is to put the past behind you, get out there and start meeting new people, and start dating again.
