In life, it’s almost certain that you’ll go through a break up at least once. It’s part and parcel of life and love, but knowing that doesn’t make it any easier. Neither does the number of break-ups — whether it’s your first or your fifth, surviving a break-up is never easy.
No matter how many times your friends tell you to “just get over it”, no matter how much you know that he hurt you and you were wrong for each other, it’s just so hard to deal with the negative feelings and just let him go.
If you’re struggling with coming to terms with the loss of a relationship, here are a few tips that may help you.
1. Let yourself cry!
Cry as hard as you want to! Remind yourself it is okay to be not okay, and it’s healthy to cry. Crying releases your sadness, anger, and all the other emotions you may be feeling. Your feelings are all valid, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. A good cry session is just what you need to let it all out.
