A break up is the end of a relationship, and they suck regardless of the position in the break up. If you've been invested and your heart is involved, break ups are terrible. Aaron Marino of alpha m. says how you handle post-split is the key to your recovery.
Break Up without Breaking Down
You may feel depressed, lost, and sad. You may have feelings of despair, spontaneous crying, anger, and lack of motivation. These feelings are all natural. It hurts. All of these feelings will subside. The key is TIME.
If you start on a self destructive road, you will hurt longer than you need to.
- Drinking in excess, for example, will only bring you down more. Build yourself up and encourage feelings of self worth.
- Do not isolate yourself. Be around people who love you, support you,and bring you up.
- Do not start sleeping around as you will feel more shallow, hollow, and empty.
You don't have to run from the pain. It will dwindle. You need to do things to facilitate the healing process. Start working on yourself- workout, build your wardrobe, get a new hobby. Take care of you, develop confidence, increase self-worth- and it's going to get better faster.
