Going through a breakup is undeniably hard. Whether it was your decision, their decision or a mutual decision, coming to terms with someone no longer being in your life can be incredibly difficult and upsetting, too.
It’s a confusing time that can leave you feeling down, lonely and frustrated, so it’s important to try and take positive steps towards making yourself feel better.
After all; everything will be alright in the end, and if it’s not alright, then it’s most certainly not the end.
We’ve gathered our top tips on how to get over a breakup to help you sassy ladies feel fabulous and back to your best in absolutely no time.
Give Yourself Time
The first point is that there is absolutely no deadline for getting over someone. Don’t punish yourself for feeling upset.
You are ALLOWED to feel and you need to feel to get it out of your system. Whether that takes you a week, six months, or even longer, don’t ever feel guilty for being upset.
Every person is different, and getting over a breakup is a totally personal thing. What might work for your friend might not work for you, so don’t beat yourself up about it.
Keep Yourself Busy
There comes a time in the breakup process where you can consciously stop wallowing in your feelings.
Of course, it’s still going to hurt but you can choose to lock yourself away and stay at home, making yourself feel worse, or you can try to make yourself feel better.
Surround yourself with your favourite people and keep busy. Laughter and happiness are the best medicines. Even if you’re hurting inside, spending time with your friends and family will help to heal your heart.
Know Your Worth
Knowing your worth is an extremely important part of getting over a breakup. No matter how hurt you are, you need to realise how amazing you are.
You DO deserve to be happy. You DO deserve to be loved and you WILL find love in your life when the time is right.
Having self-belief is key to moving on. Everything happens for a reason and even though it may not feel like it right now, your break up will only lead to the right person finding you when they’re ready.
Forgive or Forget
Sometimes, two people just aren’t supposed to fit together. This isn’t anyone’s fault, and though it’s incredibly sad, it’s only preparing you for your perfect fit who is waiting in the wings for you.
As hard as it is, you need to forgive in order to move on. If they treated you badly and hurt you, then of course it can be incredibly difficult to forgive. However, making peace with this situation and allowing yourself to forget, understanding that sometimes people do bad things and it certainly wasn’t your fault, is a key part of moving on.
Breakups are never easy, but you will get through it. With good friends, good wine, good movies and a good cry, you’ll be back on your feet in no time.
Remember—your Prince or Princess Charming is out there waiting for you!
