Picking Yourself Up After a Breakup

Every person we meet has something to teach us. Instead of thinking about all the things you could have done differently – think about all the things your relationship has taught you. 

Acknowledge Your Feelings

Of course, it’s normal to want to feel better right away after a breakup.

But at the same time, you don’t want to deny what you’re feeling. 

Acknowledging how you feel is part of the healing process.

So many of us often try to put on a brave face and hold back tears. 

Crying does have a soothing effect, helps relieve pain and can even help improve our mood. 

There is no right or wrong way to feel after a breakup. The sooner you accept and embrace your feelings, the sooner you can move past them.

Take Care of Yourself

Practicing self-care is key all year round – but it is that much more important during challenging or stressful events such as breakups.

Think about the things that make you happy and do more of them!

Connect With Others

Although it may be tempting to spend time in your room alone and reflect, you should be around people who love you.

We may not be able to spend time with our friends and family in person, but we can certainly connect with them via video chat.

Talking about your feelings can help you come to terms with them and better understand them.

Accept The Breakup

The sooner you accept the relationship has ended, the sooner you can move forward. 

Every person we meet has something to teach us. Instead of thinking about all the things you could have done differently – think about all the things your relationship has taught you. 

Recovering from a breakup doesn’t happen overnight. 

We all have our own way of healing and grieving.

Don’t rush the process. Take your time. Allow yourself to feel. You will be okay!

How to Foster Meaningful Relationships

Maintaining meaningful relationships can be tough. People come in and out of our lives all the time. When we change, our relationships do as well. Here are a few ways you can successfully foster meaningful relationships.

Treat Others They Way They Want to be Treated

It’s so important to remember; we are all different.

What works for you may not necessarily work for someone else. It may even make them feel worse.

You’re not a mindreader. The only way you can know for sure what others need is by asking them directly.

Take a Pause

Have you ever said or done something out of your character in the heat of the moment?

It’s completely normal to argue or disagree with friends and family from time to time.

You have to learn to take a step back and deal with negative emotions in a healthy way.

Don’t be afraid to hit the pause button for a few minutes. During that time you can reflect on your feelings in order to calmly communicate them.

Teach People How to Treat You

You can’t read other peoples minds right?

So how are they supposed to read yours?

Don’t be afraid to open up and show people the real you. The sooner your friends and family know what you need, the sooner they can help.

Want to Improve Your Emotional Intelligence? Cultivate Empathy

“Empathy is not feeling what you would feel in a situation. It is stepping beside yourself and adopting another person’s emotion for a few moments. Some research suggests that we succeed at this task by virtue of mirror neurons, or brain pathways that fire whether we’re experiencing the stimulus or we see someone else experience it.” Read on to learn more about How to Develop Empathy in Relationships.
