• Taking the time to grieve

Allowing yourself to feel your emotions due to the loss – forming an attachment with someone virtually or in-person can be exciting – however when it doesn’t work out it can be painful and bring up a lot of unwanted emotions

  • Watch entertaining and empowering content

Start doing those things you always wanted to do, make your goal list, binge watch your favorite tv programme 

  • stop overthinking

Stop questioning yourself over your decisions and also the what if’s. 

That is a vicious cycles and will become toxic to your health and wellbeing 

Instead, focus and remember what made you leave the relationship and why. The unhealthy signs that were there, the red flags, the reason the relationship ended. Focus on what you can learn from the breakup and the learning experience.

It is always important to remember that a break-up can actually make up for all the lessons that you never thought you needed. So keep the eyes open.
