Let’s face it, breaking up with your significant other is one of the hardest things in the world. Even if it was amicable, knowing that the relationship has come to an end feels horrible. You feel lost, as though you are navigating your life through an endless fog.
It is natural to start missing your ex, as your significant other was a huge part of your life. However, you don’t have to live in misery, as there are several ways you can get out of this rut. Here are four things you can do when you miss your ex:
Avoid thinking about what was possible
One of the most common things everyone does after a break up is analyse the relationship to see how it would turn out if they made different choices. In other words, you start asking yourself “What if” questions.
However, you should avoid playing this game, as you start creating stories which lead to a happy ending. When you face reality, you will feel even worse, as it is different from the fantasies you created. Acceptance that the the relationship is ‘no more’ is the key to moving on from it. You need to think of the relationship as something that happened, rather than something that’s still happening.
Focus on improving yourself
You should start living in the present, rather than the past so that you can move ahead with your life. Start looking at yourself and recognize your needs and wants in life. Look at how you were in the relationship so that you can find your shortcomings and fix them to become a better person.
Start working on yourself to overcome your fears, to bring out the best in you. Create new goals and pursue hobbies you always wanted to do, so that you can turn over to a new leaf. This will also keep your mind busy and help you avoid thinking about the break up as much.
Start working out
Looking for a great way to get back in shape while forgetting about your previous relationship? Start working out and you can sweat away all your feelings for your ex-partner. By staying active, your body releases hormones which make you feel good. At the same time, it brings down anxiety and stress.
Understand why your relationship went sour
One of the main reasons why you miss your ex is because you only think of the good times in your relationship. However, there were several reasons why your relationship with your ex didn’t work out. For example, you didn’t like how your partner took your time for granted or the fact that he/she wasn’t honest about his/her feelings to you.
