Hi Jasminators! We all go through breakups, and yes, sometimes they can be really painful. Here are three ways to help you get over a breakup.
1. Closure: It's always good to have one last talk to figure out where you can possibly go from your situation. Whether you stay together or not it's good to try and stay friends, even though it's going to be hard. Remember, at one point you were so close to that person. It's important not to end on a bad note. However, there are exceptions to that rule. Depending on the reason for the breakup, it might be better to just leave it alone. But for the most part, you always want to at least try and maintain a friendship with the person.
2. Don't pay attention to social networks: The first thing we usually do when we go through a breakup is stay on social networks and see what's going on with the other person. It's good to take time off social networks and not pay attention to it. It's hard for me because I'm such an open person and I'm always on Twitter but I have to learn not to do it.
If you do go on your social networks make sure you program your self not to pay attention to any negativity you will see on there regarding your break up.
3. Most importantly, stick to your decision: Going back and forth in a break up is never fun. If you made up your mind that person is not right for you then stick to your decision. You have to learn to be happy with yourself and don't try to find another guy right away. You need time to reflect on yourself. A lot of times we just like the thought of having a boyfriend rather than the boyfriend himself. Make sure you're not in that situation or you will never be happy. Also, keep yourself occupied with friends and family. Go out with your girls and do fun things together to get your mind off your break up.
I hope this advise helps you girls! Please make sure you comment on the blog and send suggestions for next weeks blog :)
