Break-up Tip #45

Reasons why you should get over your break-up…

So, you just had your heart broken and the last thing you want to do is face the world again. I get it.

The problem is the longer you spend locked up inside, the harder it will be to get back out there and move on. Recently I met with my doctor who is close in age to me and went through a bad break-up. She had been dating this guy for just over 2 years and although the relationship was long distance she was pretty sure he was the one.

So, of course she felt totally devastated when he called her to tell her he could no longer be with her. What I can tell you about my doctor is that she is very brave and got up the next day, went to work and forced herself to not think about it. She was doing great!

For many of us this isn’t so easy and we just can’t quite face it. Thus, I have created a list of reasons why you should get over you break-up and try and get out of bed (If not for health reasons alone…everybody needs to take a shower 😉

  1. If it’s meant to be, this guy will come back…there is no point on dwelling on it
  2. If you were having fights or disagreements often then he probably wasn’t on the same page as you
  3. There is probably someone better suited for you
  4. You can now do everything you wanted to do, take that trip, go skydiving, get a new job, whatever your heart desires!
  5. Everything happens for a reason, maybe you both need some space and time to reflect
  6. You may be happier alone for a while. Being single isn’t bad!
  7. If he wasn’t treating you the way you deserve, he doesn’t deserve for you to feel bad. Move on
  8. Tomorrow is a new day, you never know what’s going to happen..
  9. You can watch your tv shoes, eat whatever you want and just be you (how great is that J )
  10. Your friends and family will still love you and guess what they’re not going anywhere

If a break-up has you down, just try and focus on the positive aspects. It won’t be easy but in the long-run you will be glad you did. Think of this as a growing experience and a time of self-reflection. You can get through this and you will come out better for it.

Until next time,
