Breaking up with someone you’ve been with for long hurts.

Whether you’re the one doing the dumping or being dumped, no one wants to see someone they love hurt – but that’s just the way life is.

While the breakup might suck, there are ways to handle it in order to ease your way through the heartbreak.

1.Stop following them on social media

There doesn’t have to be bad blood between the two of you to stop following your ex on social media. It’s hard to move on from your ex when you’re keeping tabs on what they are doing every day. Instead of focusing on your well-being and peace of mind, you may get caught up in what they are doing and might have difficulties moving on.

2.Talk to your friends about it

Vent all your feelings out to people that you trust such as your friends. It’s a free therapy session.

3.Keep busy

One of the best ways to get over someone is to try keep your mind off them. You can do this by travelling to different places or doing something that you are passionate about.

It can help clear your head and make you discover who you are away from your ex – cliché but it can work.

4.Don’t suggest to be friends right away

One mistake a lot of people make when they break up is agreeing to be friends with their ex immediately after breaking up. All this will do is confuse where the two of you stand.

5.Give yourself time to heal

Time heals all wounds – or at least helps you cope better with them. Take some time away from speaking to your ex; don’t pretend to be cool with them if you’re not cool with them. It is allowed.

6.Avoid posting your grief on social media

There are some aspects of one’s life that are okay being away from social media and one of them is posting about your break up. You may get a temporary good feeling with some of the ‘so sorry’ messages but then attract other comments of what happened or why or unwanted opinions which may make the healing process difficult.

And honestly, some people on social media wouldn’t really care.
