How do I survive a breakup?
I've completely lost faith that I'll ever have a good life without my wonderful ex-boyfriend, how do I move on?
My daily life has completely stopped and I have no energy to do anything anymore.
I don't feel any joy and strongly doubt whether I'll ever be able to love again.
Can you please help me back on track???
How do I survive a breakup?
It's so tough to feel so bad.
Let's see if we can't do something about that.
If you haven't already, you need to start making the required lists right now.
Make a list of all his faults and issues.
Reason being that when you've been dumped you often only remember ALL the good things.
And that's fine but it you need a balanced perspective so the other side needs some light on it as well.
Then you need to start living your life again, slowly but steadily.
As long as you're lying on the couch crying you won't move on but since you're already there you might want to take a break and read some books.
How to survive a breakup - 3 good books to read!
And last but not least:
Go ahead and lie on the couch, mending your wounds because that's where you are right now.
Decide that Damn it: "It's ok to use the next 8 weeks to grieve and go voer the relationship."
Think about your role and his role in its demise and about what guy you want to be with in the future.
Also, once a week, you HAVE to go to the movies by yourself.
So that you learn to do stuff on your own and simply to get out into the world and live a little.
Believe me, it's way easier the third time than the first.
And write a diary!
At least 3 pages every day and then glue the pages together.
They're not for re-reading.
Write and write till you get sick of writing the same things over and over again.
