Overcoming the aftermath of a breakup can prove to be a challenging and emotionally taxing process. But, with the help of supportive friends and family, along with time and personal commitment, it is possible to find completeness again and move forward. The healing process can be difficult, as it needs time and patience while recognizing that each individual’s journey toward healing is entirely different.
The Best Part
One user shared, “The best part of breaking up: Finding someone else you can’t get enough of.”
Smooth Like Glass
A second user added, “I never was able to make a real effort to get over it. I didn’t want to lie to myself about how I felt. Eventually, just the process of time passing worked like the ocean washing over a sharp glass bottle and making it smooth until the pain wasn’t so sharp anymore.”
A third user said, “Stay busy, make plans for every day. The goal at the beginning is to go 5 minutes without thinking about it.”
This user commented, “Find a new/reconnect with an old hobby. You’ve got the extra time now. Think of something you’ve always wanted to do (i.e., rock climbing, dancing, cake decorating, etc.) and join a class.”
A Redditor mentioned, “Cut off all contact, complete back out, delete their number, block emails, social media, whatever it takes. Realize the relationship is over.”
A poster added, “Join a gym or start exercising regularly/more regularly. Not only will you get a chance to burn off the frustration and hurt, but the rush of endorphins will also make you feel better.”
This Redditor shared, “Don’t use drugs or booze to “numb the pain.” In the end, it’s not helping, and if you’re using drugs and/or alcohol as a coping mechanism, you’ll have a whole new set of issues to deal with.”
Time Is A Cure All
A top-liked comment said, “The best cure is time. You’ll go through all the stages of grief just like if you lost a friend or family member, but eventually, you’ll be able to move on.”
One user commented, “Start a blog, knit, color, do anything and everything you can to pass the time. Often doing things that fall in the “art realm” is cathartic.”
A poster contributed, “Be selfish. Spend time on yourself and only yourself. Think about all the compromises and sacrifices you’ve made over the last few years. What have you always wanted to buy, where have you always wanted to go, what have you always wanted to do that you haven’t, out of consideration for the other person? Now is the time to indulge yourself.”
Say No To Being Friends
A user shared, “Don’t try to be friends, not now, not in a few years. Never. The only way I could get unobsessed with someone was for him to stop talking to me. After no email replies, texts, or calls, I could move on. It took a while, and it hurt a lot, but I’m over it.”
Hold On To Love
One Redditor commented, “My advice is don’t get over the love. Just get over the relationship. You’ll be able to love again, don’t think this was your only shot.”
This commenter posted, “My last relationship ended in total emotional catastrophe. It took me therapy, lots of T.H.C., and a complete change of mindset to get over all that.”
This poster added, “First, breakups are f****king awful. Spend time with friends and family, and don’t be afraid to discuss it.”
New Point Of View
One Redditor stated, “I just took a step back. Looked at the situation and said well, that really isn’t good at all. It is hard to be objective when you are smitten with love.”
Destroy The Connection
This Redditor recalled, “When my ex and I broke up, she was the only other person I had slept with. For me, it helped to do everything I couldn’t do when I was with her. She never let me party. She never let me talk to other girls and flirt. Anything that I knew would piss her off, I did. I completely cut her off, and after about 4 months of being apart, I slept with someone else, which was hard to do, but thankfully, it destroyed my connection with her and s****x.”
One For Three
This user mentioned, “I read somewhere it takes about 1/3 of the total time you were together to get over someone totally. In my experience, that is right on the money. Also, getting some strange always helps.”
Cut Them Out
A user shared, “Cut them off completely. Pack up their sh****t put it in a box, light it on fire, p*ss on it, do whatever, just get it out of your sight.”
Be A Stranger
This Redditor commented, ”No contact whatsoever. No Facebook, myspace, smoke signals, texting, se**ting, calls, or email. Nothing. Act like you don’t know them and never did.”
Find A Rebound
Finally, a Redditor said, “B*ng, someone else. Maybe b*ng them a few times. Rebounding off someone is rude and painful, but it serves a purpose: To get your ego moving again once someone’s crushed it. Rebounds happen, just don’t get wrapped up in it.”
