No Mutual Friends Please!

If you have to move on this is the first step. Don’t try to gather updates about your ex’s life. They were apart of your life once and now aren’t for your good. Unfriend them from facebook or other social networking platforms to avoid breakup drama.

Avoid Drunk Dial

Let go of your past

You can’t always hold on to your past. Embrace the present and STOP crying. Apparently you need a vent but for that you can call a friend you confide in and just release negative energy. It is not going to take you anywhere. Get rid of the negativity and don’t wallow all the time. Go somewhere with your friends, watch a movie, hit the gym and do all the things you wanted to do!

Pamper yourself

Break ups should not make you feel inferior about yourself. Your emotions might be playing all the games but you’re not supposed to harm yourself in anyway. Shop because it heals. Change your wardrobe. Go for a spa treatment, get a new haircut, chill out and fool around with your loved ones. You should spend good time with your family too.

Only a right attitude can help you come out of the devastation and make the transition from being in a relationship to single less painful. After all you were a happy person when your ex was not even a part of your life. Weren’t you?
