Moving On After A Breakup



One of the hardest things we ever have to go through in our lives is a breakup, whether you’ve
been together for two years or ten years, breaking away from someone you love is a difficult thing,
and it can take your heart a long time to heal. If you have recently been through a breakup, or you
know someone who has, these are some of the ways you can look to move on after it.

Accept that it is part of life


No matter how much it may kill you to admit it, breaking up is a natural part of life. You will likely meet
many people throughout your lifetime, and not everyone you meet will be the person you were meant
to stay with for the rest of your life. Once you think about it, accepting your breakup will become
easier to handle, because there is always someone better waiting around the corner.

Self love


When you are licking your wounds after a breakup, it is easy to start bringing your judgement and
sadness inward, and making yourself feel small. You might wonder if you were ever good enough
for your partner, and if they simply didn’t find you attractive anymore. However, thinking in this way
is only going to make you feel worse and make it even harder for you to move on. It is much better
for you to start thinking in a positive way about yourself. Take a look in the mirror. Look at yourself
and list your favourite things about yourself. It could be the sprinkling of freckles which line your nose,
the way your hair shines in the sun, or your cute little button nose. Once you start to see the good in
yourself, you will be able to start mending your life and getting back on track. Sure, positive thoughts
won’t change what happened, but it can change the way you live your life going forward.


Give yourself time


It is important to give yourself enough time to heal after a breakup, no matter how short the time you
were together. Your family and friends will likely be there to try and pull you back up and get you back
in your feet, but this might be too soon for you. Remember that it’s ok to not be ok, you can take as
much time as you need to heal and get back on your feet. If you feel like you need space, book
yourself a weekend trip and spend time somewhere new. Take a breather and let yourself focus on
what you want to do next. Life can be tough, but you are tougher. You can get through this.

Clear out and move on

When you get home from your trip, you need to think about clearing out your space and making for a new start. This doesn’t only involve getting rid of your partner’s things, it can be a project for your whole home. Order yourself a container at safestore.co.uk and clear out your home to the bone. Overhaul your entire space and breathe new life into your home. Add new colours, brighten up the walls and make it feel like a new home. This will allow you to feel as if you are making a totally fresh start in your life.
