Find the Lesson
What did you learn through this relationship? I’m a big believer that good can come out of every situation, even ones we’ve perceived as bad.
Focus on what you’ve gained in life lessons that you wouldn’t have learned otherwise.
After the initial shock has sunk in and you’ve had plenty of communication with your ex, take time to be separated from your ex partner. It’s hard to gain clarity, perspectives and independence while being reminded of them constantly.
I recommend taking a few weeks to be apart: no meeting, no emails, no phone calls. With time, you will heal.
Surround Yourself with Positive Energy
Be surrounded by friends and family. Be around happy and optimistic people. Be around people you like. Be around people who can make you laugh.
