The Steps of Healing from a Breakup

The Steps of Healing from a Breakup

When you break up with someone, it’s not always easy to move on. It’s natural to feel sad or angry and sometimes even depressed. Want to learn about Healing from Breakup? The good news is that there are steps you can take to heal from a breakup! This article will outline five key ways to get over your ex-boyfriend or girlfriend so that you can move forward with your life in peace and happiness:

Stop texting

  • Stop texting him.
  • Don’t reply to his texts.
  • Don’t answer his calls or messages, unless it’s an emergency or you see him in person and he asks for one of those things (in which case, I hope you’re still happy with your decision-making skills).
  • Don’t respond to any messages sent from his phone number (even if it says “SEND”). And by all means, don’t send him any messages at all. Or even anything that seems like a message!

Block his number on your phone

You can also block his number on your phone. This will keep him from getting in touch with you, but it doesn’t stop him from contacting other people (like your friends and family). You’ll want to delete as much of this relationship as possible, which includes:

  • Deleting all texts from him or her. You don’t want any reminders of how much he loved hurting you or making fun of how much money it would cost for him to take care of you for a night out at dinner!
  • Deleting all photos that were taken together during this time period; if there are any good ones, save them for posterity so they’re not lost forever! Or maybe just burn them 🙂 . . . ? * Deleting all videos where either one person is talking directly into camera instead of saying anything else while the other responds in some way (e.g., “Hi!” instead) . These are usually more awkward than anything else because both parties know what’s going on here but refuse to acknowledge it publicly by saying something like “Oh yeah? Well, I’m pretty sure I looked better than YOU when we went shopping yesterday…?”

Get rid of things that remind you of him

You can start by getting rid of any gifts he gave you. If he bought you a shirt or an outfit, throw it away. If he gave you jewelry, take it off and put it in a safe place so you don’t accidentally wear it around other people.

Next, get rid of any pictures that remind you of him. His face will be replaced with one that makes him look like an old man (trust us). If there are any pictures hanging around your house or in the car, remove them immediately. Because they’re just a reminder that things aren’t going well between the two of them anymore and might cause pain if seen again later on down the road when things have improved but then again maybe not…

Get off social media for a while

Social media is a distraction from the healing process. You may think it’s harmless, but I can tell you that it’s not. In fact, social media can be toxic and make you feel bad about yourself. As if your ex is still in your life! And when we feel bad about ourselves. There’s no way we’re going to be able to get over him or her.

The best thing you can do if you just broke up with someone is to get off social media altogether until things have settled down. It won’t help much at all; instead of avoiding reminders of what happened (like seeing old photos on Instagram). Look at them objectively and try not to let yourself get upset by these memories any more than they already are (which isn’t very hard).

Watch your favorite movie

  • Watch your favorite movie.
  • Choose a movie that makes you feel good, laugh and cry.
  • It could be one of those tearjerkers that reminds you of your first love or it could be something lighter like “How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days” (which is actually about dealing with breakups).

Have a spa day

Spa days are a great way to relax and unwind after a breakup. They can be expensive. But if you have friends or family members who want to join in on the fun, it’s even better! You can also do it at home with your partner or alone. The choice is yours!

Hang out with friends and family and people who love you and make you feel good about yourself

The first step of healing is to surround yourself with people. People who love you and make you feel good about yourself. Your friends and family will support you through the breakup. But it’s also important for them to remind themselves that they’re still great people too.

When we’re feeling down, we tend to forget that everyone else has been through similar things. (even if their breakups weren’t as bad). We can’t expect everyone else around us not to deal with their own issues. It’s just human nature! But don’t worry: there are plenty of ways for us all to share our stories together so that we don’t feel alone anymore.

Take a trip or go somewhere new

  • Traveling can be a good way to distract yourself from your breakup.
  • You can travel alone or with friends, family, or a significant other.
  • You can also volunteer at a hostel or do research for a charity in exchange for free accommodation and food (a great idea if you want to add some adventure into your trip).

  1. This is a perfect way of moving on from a relationship that didn’t add any value to your life. Great tips!

  2. I know what you are talking about. When I was 25, I broke up with a man, and it took almost 8 years to heal. I spend so many years for nothing. Thank you for this important article.
