But no matter how difficult it may be, you can always choose how you can deal with a heartbreak.
While you may have been told of the things that you should, here is the list of the things you “shouldn’t” do if you are trying to heal from a breakup.
Calling or textingIf you want to help yourself get over a breakup, you should stop yourself from contacting your ex. This may be a challenge in the beginning but it will get easier when time goes by. In a matter of one month, you will feel a lot better and you won’t feel the same urge to get in touch with them.
Cherishing your hurt feelingsWhen you are broken hearted, it is perfectly okay to cry and feel the loneliness. In fact, one of the most effective ways to heal is for you to feel the pain and acknowledge it. However, if you were angry and the resentment piled up, it is time to let them go. Do not avoid your grief but do not cherish self-destructive emotions
Dating right awayThis is one of the no-nos after a breakup. Of course, you want to be happy again but it does not mean that you have to date the person you just met shortly after you had a heartbreak. Chances are, they are just going to be your rebound.
Beating yourself upIn a breakup, you can never put the blame on just one person. At the end of the day, whatever happens to your relationship is a product of both of your actions. Remember, it takes two to tango. So don’t take in all the guilt because you are already hurting.
In a heartbreak, there is no one else who could help you better than yourself so know the things that you should and should not do to heal and move on.
