How to recover from the breakup?

Breakup

A breakup of a relationship is the most painful experience you might encounter. In most cases, it negatively affects your wellbeing.

But getting over a breakup is even more challenging. In this post, I will be discussing some professional tips on recovering from the painful experience.

How to recover from the breakup?

1.     Don’t stalk your ex on Facebook

Following your ex’s social media account can actually linger the pain. One study in 2012 found that people who follow their ex’s Facebook account are more likely to feel pain, longing, and less likely to recover.

2.      Stop blaming yourself for what happened

There many reasons that can cause a breakup. But it may not be your fault. Something out of your control must have caused it. So instead of blaming yourself, keep your sense of self, intact.

A study in 2016 published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin found that a sense of self determines the emotional consequence.

People who blame themselves were more depressed than those who feel like they are not responsible for what happened.

3.     Look at the positive side

Breakup is a painful experience. But it’s not the end of your wold. So instead of focusing on the negative feeling, try to consider the positive side of your experience. What does it tell you?

In a 2015 study, the researchers found that journaling is helpful in the recovery process. However, the journal must not focus on how painful the experience is, rather, on how one can turn a breakup into positive.

Whether you believe it or not, any negative experience has a bright side. Your job is actually to find the light.

4.     Share your experience

Breakup is a burden. It is hard to cope with it if you are on your own. One of the best strategies is to share your experience with others

A study in 2015 found that people who talk about their painful experience felt lesser distress than those who don’t share.
