How Do You Know When To Break Up With Someone?

Knowing when to break up is quite simple to figure out, but of course, it is easier said than done. Every relationship should have love and once there is no more love, it is best to just leave the relationship. Love isn’t just about the feelings of butterflies in your belly. Love is commitment, effort, loyalty, and mutual respect from both partners. It takes a lot more than feelings to make a relationship work. However, when you begin to notice consistent behaviors from your partner that are either harmful to your mental state, your body, or your life in general, it is a signal for you to get out of such a toxic relationship. Never mistake toxic obsession and manipulation for love.

Common Reasons For Breakups And A Major Mistake You Should Not Make

A breakup could be a result of long-distance, emotional blackmail, insecurities, cheating, physical abuse, unrealistic expectations towards a partner, or falling out of love. Whatever the reason, it doesn’t change the fact that a breakup hurts. During a breakup, you might even be tempted to blame yourself for the failure of the relationship. Do not give in to it. Reflections are indeed necessary for all phases of life –you get to figure out what you can do to be better. However, it would be best if you never reflected and then feel responsible for the mistakes of your partner. Let each person take responsibility for their errors and work on them.

How Do You Move On After A Breakup?

Feeling pain is a normal part of losing a relationship but it is imperative to know that dwelling on it for too long is wrong. The earlier you move on, the better it is for you. So, here comes the most tasking part of a breakup –moving forward. This is because it requires mental effort. Here are ways to keep living your life after a breakup:

  1. Do not lock up and close your heart to finding love somewhere else. It is a sign that you haven’t moved on yet.

How Do You Get Over Someone You Just Broke Up With?

The process and aftermath of a breakup can be very traumatic for lots of people. Whether you ended the relationship by yourself or not, it doesn’t change the reality that you would be hurt. You have just gone from imagining your whole life with someone to becoming total strangers with them again. It is almost like the death of a loved one.

Here are strategies that help you to be strong for yourself(and/or your dependents) in a breakup:

  1. Never try to bottle up the pain that you feel. This is the first step to moving on from a failed relationship. You need to let out your pain and allow yourself to grieve. This is not to be considered a sign of weakness.
  2. Use coping mechanisms that work for you, to heal from the pain. People cope differently when going through a breakup. So, figure out or use one that has been effective for you in previous times.

Yours could be writing your heart out on your notepad or talking to a trusted friend or family or changing your environment for a while.

  1. Ensure that you get rid of everything that reminds you of them in your life. You do not want to keep picking at a wound that you’re trying to heal. It would take much longer to heal if you do that. This includes stalking them on social media.
  1. Live healthily and don’t go on a junk food-eating spree. Eat healthy food and exercise your body. Get enough rest, care for yourself and engage more in activities that you love. This is how you increase positive energy after a breakup.
  1. When you notice that your thoughts are drifting towards them, go for a walk or listen to music or do whatever distracts you.

How do you motivate someone who just had a breakup?

Even if you’ve never had a breakup, here are things you can do to help your loved one through a breakup phase:

  1. Never try to invalidate their feelings.
  2. Let them know that it is okay to not be okay.
  3. Assist them with activities and spend time cheering them up.
  4. Encourage them to reflect, learn from the lost relationship and move on.
  5. Be their support system if you can.

Whether you are seeking to encourage a friend going through a breakup or help yourself, it has to come from the heart. We could write a million tips and quotes to help you move on, but the will to move on must be solid and intentional. Do not dwell on ‘what could have been’ or try to ‘revenge’ on them for breaking your heart. Be truly willing to let go and accept that disappointments are inevitable in life.

And remember that if you find yourself falling through despair again, fall back to your support system and allow them to help with your weakness. More quotes that might help you to move on after a breakup you can find in another post “50+ Breakup Quotes To Get You Over A Heartbreak”.
