She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break — her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze, and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there. Bob Marley

Power Of Silence After Break Up

A sense of control over your own life, that is, the feeling that you can influence your present and future through your decisions and actions, plays a key role when it comes to happiness, well-being, and physical and mental health after a breakup. Moreover, maintaining a sense of control and independence of each partner in a romantic relationship is a ground that they will be happy in this relationship. For people experiencing a breakup with a loved one, the feeling that they can control their lives declines sharply in the first year after the breakup but gradually recover in the following years. Moreover, women are more affected by breakups in this sense than men, and older people are more affected than young people. One year after the breakup people became increasingly confident that they were capable of taking responsibility for themselves, of influencing their life. This feeling helps them to cope with difficulties and manage their lives without depending on anyone else, which generally contributes to their personal growth. That is why many psychologists recommend excluding completely your ex from your life and everything that might remind him/her during the first year and focusing just on yourself. Make your breakup your superpower and change your life for the better.
