Moving on step 1# –  Take one action at a time and take it as a journey

Make sure you keep an open mind when it comes to life. It’s important to understand everyone you see doing okay in life now has had moments in life where they weren’t doing that well. Remember, people only show you want they want to show you, they are not going to show you there bad times.

Especially with break up nowadays, of course, people don’t want to show their vulnerable side.

Leaving a relationship can spark a whole new lease on life for you, taking you on an entire whirlwind of new journies. These Journeys many include your evolving and growing all that the same time.

Moving on step 2# Realistically reflect on things.

I have noticed at the end of a break; we tend to look back on the relationship and analyse every detail in the good parts and not realistically reflect on the bad parts.

I don’t know why we only tend to look and focus on the beautiful aspect of our relationships.  Because I tell you one thing, this is what makes it harder for you to accept the relationship is over. It’s like we are in denial in a sense. But we all need to remember is that within these relationships, there are always struggles.

Those are the reason why you are currently not with that person, letting go of the attracted emotion through good memories of the time – can help you feel more at ease and help you start to forget the past relations you have had to help you heal and move on with life.

Moving on step 3# show your feeling & talk about the situation

Feeling all the raw emotions after a breakup is necessary. Because even though the feeling can feel like a rush of emotions all at once. Learning how to accept the pain and let yourself feel and cry out all the pain is the best way to heal. We need to remember we are only human; this way of healing is the best way to help you start forgetting the past, healing and moving on with your life.

Treat yourself well in this time, give yourself a break, get out, enjoy this time with your friend and family. Speak to your close friend about how you feel because friends are there to help. Speaking to someone about how you are feeling is an excellent way to help let go of all those emotions.let go of emotions and friend

Personally, what I have learnt to do after break up is just to write down how I am feeling in my journal. Write down things that I am thinking about, the things I never really got to say. I have learnt it one of the best ways for me to be able to communicate how I am feeling.

So seek the help you need from a friend because that is an excellent way to get through what you are going through emotionally.
