Love and romance can be the very best things in the world. However, a loving relationship can meet its end in various ways. There can be many reasons behind a breakup, but the most important thing to do after a breakup is ensuring your mental wellbeing.
How do you know for sure that you have gotten over your last breakup? Breakups are never easy and most of the time they leave you with a broken heart. The feelings of love for your partner and pain felt in separating from them may take a long time to fade away. However, it is important to move on from past relationships after having properly dealt with your unresolved feelings.
If the following statements are truly what you feel about your last breakup, you have gotten over your ex-partner.
3. “I was hurt.”
Breakups bring with them considerable emotional baggage. The range of pain can differ: from crippling depression to missing a couple of days at work. Trauma from a bad breakup can even render you unable to trust future partners. Even so, you have to find a way to move on from all this negativity.
The correct way to deal with this is to admit to yourself that you were hurt by the relationship, the reasons why it did not work out and the breakup itself. This acknowledgement helps you cope with your heartbreak. Thinking over what exactly went wrong in the relationship helps you realize what kind of behaviour you can accept in a future partner. So swallow your pride and admit to yourself that you were hurt. Use your pain as a coping mechanism. Sooner or later, you’ll be able to nonchalantly tell yourself, “I was hurt, but I am okay now.”
