Feelings of pain, confusion, stress, and other uncomfortable emotions are common at the end of relationship, marriage, or long term friendship. This is completely normal, whether you want the breakup or not.
However, there are a variety of ways to cope with these unsettling feelings and move forward with a sense of hope and optimism. At SBH Coaching, we’ll give you the mentoring and peace of mind to adjust to this transition in a positive manner.
End of Relationship Grief
First and foremost, you need to allow yourself to grieve during this process. It’s never a good idea to fight against your feelings and hold them in to prolong the transition.
By addressing each conflicting emotion, you will gain an understanding of the situation with a realization that you have a future ahead of you. Talk about your emotions, set goals for yourself, and little-by-little, you will begin to feel better with new hopes and dreams.
Every breakup is unique in its own way, but you should always:
- Think rationally
- Make yourself the priority
- Talk to others
- Have a plan and goals
- Explore new interests and activities
It’s okay to feel emotions such as pain, grief, and fear. However, isolating yourself from the outside world will make the transition much more difficult. Allow yourself to grow and learn during this difficult time by exploring your thoughts and spending time with people who love and support you.
Coping With Breakup
It’s never a good idea to go at this alone. Support and encouragement is the backbone of your success, and it’s even more apparent at the end of relationship or marriage.
It takes time to heal, regroup, and refocus with positivity and optimism for the future. At first, you may not be as productive as usual, but that’s okay. Give yourself a break to recognize and understand the loss you are going through.
Also, you may have never felt these emotions before in your life, making exploration that much more important. Gain insight as to the reasoning behind the breakup and how you can improve.
Once a relationship begins to evolve, you commit yourself to one another with hopes of a bright future together. At the end of relationship, all of these commitments suddenly disappear. This can be difficult to handle, but it’s important to refocus your attention into new goals and dreams that will encourage you along the way.
Reach Out During Your Breakup
Your family and friends are your greatest gift during a breakup. These are the people who will always be there for you! By reaching out to them, you can feel more at ease through the process and begin healing and enjoying your life.
Furthermore, gain new connections and cultivate new friendships. After a breakup, you may lose mutual friends or a part of your social network, so don’t be afraid to meet new people. Get involved in your community, take fun courses, play sports, and make an effort to create new friendships.
In some cases, you make look for outside help, such as counseling or a support group. This is a great way to have comfort in opening up and sharing your story.
