Breaking Up and Moving On: A Painful Experience for Everyone
There is nothing more painful than a breakup. You are not only losing the person you love, but you are also losing your best friend. That person was supposed to get you, to know every single thing and secret, and to surprise and love you every single day. It is true, you don’t know what you have until you lose it. It is difficult to end a relationship when one person is still in love. But, it is more difficult to accept that it actually happened.
One of the things that you are going to hate is not being able to erase the memories you have together. At this point, those memories are only going to hurt you. Of course you want to forget and scream and cry, but don’t be impulsive. I know that with time everything will get better and you will probably talk again. I think that after a breakup it is better to be alone and process what is happening. You need time to figure out what you want to do next. If you decide that you want to maintain a friendship with that person that is okay. But, there is always a possibility of getting mixed feelings.
In general, everyone needs time apart. Not everyone has the strength to keep talking with the person that broke you heart. That is why I feel like having no contact at all is the best, mostly when it was a bad break up. I know that every person has a different way of approaching and coping with breakups, but every breakup is painful. It does not matter if you think you are okay because the yearning will hit you when you least expect it. Also, do not throw anything away, do not erase any pictures, and do not insult the person that made you feel the happiest when you were together. Everything happens for a reason and you will soon figure it out.
Good Luck and never give up.
