Are you trying hard to get over your ex and still failing? Check out these six steps that may help you get over your ex.
6. Accept The Fact That It Is Over
The first and most difficult step to getting over an ex is to convince yourself that they’re gone and it’s over. You can’t be friends with them, because if you stay as friends your feelings will keep growing and you will end up crying to them one day. You can’t contact them for anything. You can’t check up on them.
Accept that they’re gone, those hugs and kisses are gone, those hangouts are gone, those dates are the past. It is not at all easy but it is vital that you make yourself understand this. Stop stalking them on their social media accounts, delete their number, delete your photos with them. It will hurt now but it is for your own good, always remember why you broke up and use it to make you stronger.
5. Don’t Talk To Their Friends
You probably became good friends with their friends and you guys started hanging out together. Stop talking to them, the more you talk to them, the more your mind will tell you to ask about your ex and how they’re doing and if they’re seeing anyone now. It will all end up hurting you and eventually, you’ll be involving yourself in them again.
4. You Can’t Be Friends
When I broke up with my ex, we decided to at least stay friends, BIG MISTAKE! Slowly and surely, we started talking about our feelings again, and then it went on and ended up being another breakup which hurt a lot more than the last one.
You simply can not be friends with your ex because it wasn’t the relationship you guys were in, to begin with, your relationship started with love, and when love is in the mix it just doesn’t go away no matter how cool you try being with them, you’ll continue feeling stronger for them and it’ll hurt you In the end.
3. No Contact, On Any Level
Keep this in mind, if you contact your ex for any reason you’ll slowly want to talk more to them and you’ll get interested again. It starts off with a harmless phone call or a text message and it leads to you two talking all night and saying how much you miss each other. The part where you two broke up and why suddenly vanishes and all you can think of is being with them again.
So it’s a HUGE no, don’t ever contact them, have no means to contact them, and if they contact you just simply ignore them because they won’t do it forever. Don’t be weak and help yourself get through it.
2. Don’t Keep Anything That Reminds You Of Them
Throw away everything that they gave you, don’t keep anything that makes you think of them and how sweet they were and how awesome they were, because they broke up with you for a reason. And making yourself think of the good times will make you forget the bad and make you commit the same mistake again. So, don’t keep anything that belongs to them or something they gave you, it will be extremely hard but it will be worth it.
1. Hang Out With Family And Friends
Now that you’ve told yourself it’s over, stop punishing yourself for it and start living your life again. If you have good friends, they’ll make sure you get as happy as possible. Your family also understands. Be around positive people who make you feel good and you’ll be back on your feet in no time!
