Breakups are never easy even if the decision is mutual. The worst thing you can do is not allow yourself to mourn. Cry, punch your pillow, write about it - surround yourself with loving friends who love you and listen. Don't pretend to be uneffected by the breakup; don’t let pride get in the way of you being real to yourself. You don’t have to fall apart at the office, but take some quiet moments to reflect and be honest with yourself. It’s okay to be angry, hurt or humiliated. It’s healthier to express yourself rather than grow numb.
Why do breakups hurt so much, even when the relationship is no longer good? A divorce or breakup is painful because it represents the loss, not just of the relationship, but also of shared dreams and commitments. Romantic relationships begin on a high note of excitement and hope for the future. When these relationships fail, we experience profound disappointment, stress, and grief.
Recovering from a breakup or divorce is difficult. However, it’s important to keep reminding yourself that you can and will move on. But healing takes time, so be patient with yourself.
Remember to seek professional help if you become overwhelmed.
