Taking care of yourself
Breakups can be very painful, as someone you loved and spent time with the most, now rejects you, or that someone who once loved you the most no longer does. Since you cannot reverse the breakup, it is time for you to lift your spirits up, be strong, and survive the relationship. It can be hard to pick yourself up, but you can start with the first step – taking care of yourself.
Do not let yourself fall sick. Do not allow the negative feelings and emotions to affect your physical health. Avoid thinking too much. Do not get too depressed as it could make you become physically weary, which may affect your daily routines. Most importantly, get enough rest and sleep.
Avoid self-destructive habits. Do not take drugs. Do not start smoking heavily, or become drunk often. These will never help you to feel better; instead, it may destroy you, over time. Do also bear in mind, beside your ex, there are people out there who still care and love you, especially your family and friends.
Do not fool around with love. Before you fully understand and handle the breakup, do not rush into the next relationship; do not go around sleeping with others, just because you want to get back at your ex or because you feel no one cherish you anymore.
Please respect yourself, and do not lower your self-esteem.
Keep up with your daily routines. After the breakup, release your emotions. Cry hard, be sulky, and be angry but don’t indulge in these for too long. Get back to your daily routines as soon as possible. Getting back to normal or even become a better person is better for you and those around you. Learn to focus on happy thoughts and actions.
