How To Cope With A Break Up, The Healthy Way

So you’re worried about your relationship, right? You think that things are falling apart and maybe you’re right, but you’re not sure how to handle a breakup. Maybe you’ve never experienced one before or maybe you just don’t know how you can go through it again. So what do you do?




How To Handle A Breakup

The first thing you need to understand is that you are not alone. There are people around you who love you and care about you. These people are there to support you through your breakup. Whether you decided to end things or the other person did, you’re going to need your support system. They are the ones who can help you feel better no matter what you’re going through.


Let It Out

When you feel upset or angry or anything at all, make sure that you talk with someone. Even if you are the one who ended the relationship, you are definitely allowed to feel upset about it. You are allowed to feel whatever you want and whatever you need to in order to make yourself feel better and ready to get on with your own life.

Don’t ignore the relationship or the feelings you have about it. Trying to push it out of your mind and pretend it never happened is a good way to end up with even more problems down the road when all those feelings start to bubble over. Instead, let yourself cry over the loss of the good times. Let yourself feel angry about the bad times. Experience the emotions when they happen to avoid anything really bad later on.

Bottling up your emotions from a relationship can lead to more than just a complete breakdown at some point in the future. It can actually cause health problems in the meantime. You may experience increased stress and anxiety, which can actually cause weight gain, weight loss, ulcers, headaches, lowered immune system and a whole lot more. That’s definitely not going to help you when you’re already feeling down.





Be The Best Version Of Yourself

When you’ve worked through your emotions or even while you’re still working them out, figure out what you want out of your life. What do you want for yourself? Do you want to go back to school? Do you want to get a new job? Maybe you just want to take up a new hobby or learn a new skill. No matter what you’re thinking, you want to get started on making yourself into the person that you want to be.

Taking some me time can definitely help you in getting over someone, and it can help you turn that break up into something positive too. You’re going to be a better person, a stronger person, and a happier person when you’re all done and you’re going to enjoy it too.




It’s not just about getting over the other person. It’s also about getting comfortable with yourself before you jump into anything else.  If you’re struggling with getting through your breakup, it may be time to seek out some help.
