As I’m sure you already know, it’s really hard to figure out how to get over someone you love.
You might be struggling to come to terms with the fact that the person you loved so much is gone. You feel devastated and heartbroken. Hell, you probably don’t even feel like yourself right now.
The process of getting over someone you love is tough, and often very long; however, the 3 tips I share below will help you get over your ex a lot faster.
3 Tips for How to Get Over Someone You Love
1. Resist the urge to try to get your ex back
You’re probably going to be in love with your ex for a while after the break up. You may feel the urge to get them back or tell them how much you love them. However, you have to remind yourself that you can’t get over your ex and try to get them back at the same time. If you want to move on with your life, you have to accept that the relationship is over. Your ex left. They’re gone. Instead of spending all your time and energy trying to figure out how to get them back, spend that time focusing on yourself and moving on with your life. Accept that what’s done is done. Leave the relationship in the past, where it belongs.
2. Remember that you guys broke up for a reason
After a break up, we have a tendency to remember all the things we loved about our ex and all the happy memories we had together. Remind yourself of why you broke up, what you hated about your ex and what you guys could never agree on. Recalling all the bad things about your relationship can help you “fall out of love” with your ex.
3. Cut off all contact with your ex for at least a month
To put it plain and simple: you cannot truly get over someone you love if you are keeping in touch with them. I know a part of you feels like the connection you guys have is just too special to throw away; but the fact is this: you can’t be friends with your ex after a break up. Maybe you guys can be friends later, after both of you had some time apart to heal. However, if you try to be friends immediately after the break up, it’ll create a lot of unnecessary complications and make things a lot harder than they have to be. So do yourself a favor and cut all contact while you attempt to get over each other.
