A relationship break-up is one of the most painful experiences in life to most people. It could either be a couple that breaks up after a few years or a marriage that ends in divorce. Either way, it feels like your heart has been ripped out your chest.
Generally, there’s one party that feels worse than the other. The one who initiates the break up tends to be less hurt because they knew it was coming and made the final decision.
It’s the one getting dumped or divorced who feels the real impact. Not only does the entire relationship feel like a failure but it’s a huge blow to their ego too.
There are two ways to react when you’re thrown in such a situation. You can either accept the break up and move tf on, or try to work things out with your ex.
The problem here is that the one who got dumped is in a more vulnerable position. Their pain may make them do desperate things like texting their exes multiple times daily or begging for a second chance or resorting to other dramatic displays of desperation while hoping to tug at the heartstrings of the one who left them.
The unfortunate reality is that the more one pleads and begs, the more their ex shuns them. There is a power play at work here and understanding it is of paramount importance.
Never forget that you are a human being who is worthy of love and respect. Do not let your fear of being alone confuse you and make you think that you really want your ex back. All relationships are destined to go through hell, but the really strong ones get through it.
If you’ve been abandoned, it’s usually better to move on and find someone who will love you for who you are. Begging and pleading with your ex is pointless. A relationship is worth fighting for, but ain't no way you supposed to be the only one fighting!
Find your sense of self and appreciate yourself for who you are. Find new activities to take up your time. Time is your best friend. All pain dissipates with time. You just need to allow yourself the time to recover from the break up.
Forcing a relationship to work is pointless if your ex is not someone that can give you what you want. It’s fine to have a few bad relationships. These will teach you to recognize the good ones when they arrive.
Don’t fear dying single. This is a common fear that millions have. They worry about going through life all alone without a partner to share life with. They then end up picking just anybody as their partner and life becomes a living hell.
It’s better to let your ex go and understand that the relationship had to happen but it’s now time to move on. At the end of the day, you don’t need someone to complete you. You just need someone to love you completely… and you will find the right partner with time.
