Ways to take a break from dating
We are a culturally affirming organization that centers young people, caring adults, and communities in our prevention and intervention efforts.Our dynamic and diverse team believes that all young people deserve to live in a world where they can thrive.Don’t get mad at yourself for feeling what you’re feeling; accept it as a part of the process. Life must go on and you’ll never move forward if you keep mourning this loss.I would say give yourself a week, max, to let it all out, and then try to pick up the pieces.They say time heals, and in some ways this is true, but it takes more than time.You also have to process the situation, you need to digest, you need to feel, you need to make peace, you need to get in touch with your inner strength, and you need to move on as a better, stronger person than you were before.
I was going, going going, keeping myself busy so I wouldn’t have to feel anything.
This time was even worse because the relationship was a lot more serious, and a lot more toxic. He left me for someone else, and once again I didn’t process it properly; instead, I let it fester and eat away at me and I developed an even stronger complex about not being good enough, about not being worthy of getting the love I truly wanted.
These breakups both caused an insurmountable amount of pain but also brought a lot of good. I ended up marrying the high-school ex, and I started this website with the college ex and get to write about relationships for a living.
So I guess it’s true that all’s well that ends well!
But back to the matter at hand: How to get over a breakup.
