The Secret To Coping With A Relationship Break Up

Aug 22, 2008
One of the toughest parts of coping with a relationship break up is the thoughts of panic and desperation which continually play on the mind.

Lack of self esteem is another major problem but it's important to remember at this time that it's okay to be you. If you've just been dumped and the decision came out of the blue taking you totally by surprise, then this article can help you look at the situation from a more objective view and ease some of the emotional strain.

Do You Really Want To Get Your Ex Back?

In the first instance, put aside any emotional pain and let your ex know you're okay with the decision. Simply tell them that you have been thinking about it for sometime yourself.

The reason you do this is two-fold:

- to make yourself feel better
- to give your ex something to think about

By making a statement and declaring it you've stated it officially and it's amazing how this can help ease some emotional stress.

Secondly, your ex obviously held the "whip hand" up until you made your statement so just as the break up may have taken you by surprise, then so will your statement take them by surprise. At least it will get them thinking a little more about you and even plant thoughts in their mind that perhaps you may be seeing someone else.

What does this do? Well usually, people want what they can't have and if you walk away and agree with the break up, then you've loosened that emotional hold they have over you.

Time For Your Own Assessment

Now is a great time for you to break the shackles and sit down and do some analysis. This is a powerful way of coping with a relationship break up.

You need to analyze the positives and negatives of both your relationship and your ex. List the good points of your union and then make a list of the bad points in your opinion. For this to be effective, you need to be totally honest.

This will again have two benefits. You can see at a glance if there are too many negatives about your ex and relationship to even waste time trying to get back and it will continue to ease the emotional stress you're experiencing because you are facing it head on.

The whole idea of this process is about getting you to feel good about yourself and that you're okay. Until you begin to feel good about yourself, then the way you feel will express itself in physical form and it's unattractive not just to other people but also your ex.
