I know how to move on after breaking up with a lover, I don’t need to have a truck-load of experience to know it, every lifestyle magazine I know has published an article with tips on how to move on after break-ups. You see, breaking up with a lover is a painful thing and many people really do understand it because they know how it feels.
What many people don’t know is how to move on after breaking up with a friend. I learned how to move on in these seven hard ways;
Stop talking about it – You will be tempted to talk about your friend and what she did to you to everyone, but don’t. If you feel really burdened and you need to talk, make sure it is with someone you can really trust like a family member. Talking about your hurt all the time makes it harder to heal and move on.
Let go of regret – You will blame yourself for putting yourself in harm’s way and for things you probably could have handled differently, but you don’t have to dwell on it. The past is gone; don’t let it rob you of your future.
Because someone hurt you doesn’t mean everyone will hurt you – When a close friend hurt you, you may become paranoid about other friends or someone who wants to be your friend. Don’t be. Because one friend hurt you doesn’t mean everyone else will, don’t let go of good friendships because of a bad one.
Find a reason to love – If you have been friends for a long time, there must be at least one good thing about your friend that you liked. Don’t throw away all the good memories of your friendship. It will help you let go of your hurt.
