Relationships like so many other things in life sometimes don’t last as long as we would want them to. It can be hard coming to terms with accepting that what you thought would last forever, is ending. Not to mention you have to go through these feelings while still carrying on with daily tasks and responsibilities, and it can quickly start to feel like you will never be able to move on. But that is not the case, so today we are going to share a few tips to get you through the end of a relationship and onto the other side.

Feel the feels 

Take time to sit with your feelings and grieve. Grieve what could have been, what was, all the good times, and even remember the bad times but don’t run away from your feelings or dismiss them. There was someone in your life and now they aren’t there anymore so of course there is a void, and it’s okay to feel sad, angry, regretful, shameful, and it’s even okay to miss them. It’s healthy to feel all these emotions and easier to work through them once you acknowledge they exist.

Accept it.

An important part of moving on from a relationship is accepting that it has ended. Accept the relationship for what it was and yes, it’s okay to reminisce and appreciate the good times but also remember the times that weren’t so good and the things that led to it ending. I know it’s easy to fantasize about what could have been or about your ex calling you and begging you to take them back, but there is the reason why things are the way they are so better to see it for what it is and accept it.

Reflect on the relationship

Reflecting on the relationship is another step that can help you move on. Now that you are not in it anymore you can probably see it for what it was. Reflect on the role you played that could have led to its ending because no one is perfect and also reflect on your former partner’s role. This can bring a sense of gratitude and clarity that will enable you to see analyze and understand the relationship, take accountability for your part, understand the lessons it taught you, come to terms with where you are now and find a way forward. 

Focus on yourself

Taking time off to just do you for a bit is another step that can help you move on after a breakup. Get back into the things that you love that you probably ignored during your relationship. Enjoy your won company, get to know yourself again because you will be surprised how much relationships change people, spend time with your friends and family and build those relationships, travel, or maybe give more focus to your work or school. Just get back into your life and start living it.

Ask For Help

You should never feel embarrassed or shameful about your relationship ending and needing extra support to get through the breakup. Don’t be afraid to open up to friends and family that you feel safe with and let them know that you are struggling. Lean on them, let them hold you accountable, let them distract you, let them cry with you, laugh with you, just let them love on you as you go through this difficult time.

 Conclusion

It’s difficult when relationships end, and it may seem like the world is ending and like you will never be okay again but with the above tips, you will slowly realize that you are starting to be okay and that things do get better.
