Bouncing Back From Heartbreak: Practical Steps To Help You Heal

Breakups can take their toll, even if you’ve known your relationship wasn’t working for a long time. It can be really tough to be with someone. But it can be even harder to be without them. If you’re recovering from relationship breakdown, here are some steps you can take to help you bounce back.



Taking time out
We all react to difficult situations differently. Some of us maroon ourselves far from civilization turning to junk food and Netflix to get us through. Some of us cry for days on end. Some of us try desperately to soldier on and keep busy. Whatever your way of coping, make sure you take time out. There’s no need to feel like you need to get back to normal straight away. It can take a long time to get over a breakup, so don’t rush. Take every day as it comes. Some days, you may feel fine. Others, it may hit you like a ton of bricks.

Seeing the positives
They say every cloud has a silver lining. It may take you months to realize this, but there may be positive outcomes of your breakup. It’s not all bad being on your own. The end of one chapter marks the beginning of a new one. If you’re single, you have control over how you spend your time and money. You can devote your attention to people you’ve lost touch with or not spent enough time with over the years. You can indulge your hobbies and interests. You could travel the world, or try new things. Life doesn’t end because you’ve had a failed relationship. You may well look back in a few years and think it was the best decision you ever made.

Having a clear out
It’s tough to move on when you’re surrounded by memories of your ex. Perhaps you’re living in the same home you shared together, or you’re wondering what to do with the gifts he bought you. You don’t need to rush into making decisions. But it may help you to have a clear out. If you have valuable items like designer bags or jewelry, you don’t want to give them away. If you want to sell without any hassle, consider using firms like Luxury Buyers. It may be upsetting to part with sentimental items, but it may give you that push to start moving forwards.

Talking
It can take a long time to get to a point where you feel comfortable talking about your relationship. But when you reach this stage, it’s really healthy to be open and to get things off your chest. If you don’t fancy speaking to friends or family, you may find seeing a therapist helpful. Bottling up your emotions can set you back.



Many of us have had our hearts broken. At the time, it may feel like the world is crashing down. But time is an incredible healer. Be patient, and don’t rush. Take time to heal, and try and be optimistic. Talk to others about how you feel, and try and move on when you’re ready. Focus on the positives and look forward to what the future holds.

Things People Believe About Feminists (And Why They're Wrong)

When there is a movement, there is always a counter-movement. It happens in microcosm, a response to the mildest of things. If the general agreement in the populace is that a particular song is the best by a particular artist, a secondary group will appear purely for the purpose of disagreeing, of applying contrarian practices.

Since its birth at the turn of the last century, feminism has had plenty of counter movements. It began with essential basics of human rights, such as the right to vote - and people argued against that. Then it moved onto the lives of women, right through second and third wave feminism.

Given that feminism has been around so long, it’s to be expected that there are opponents to it. It just so happens that in the last decade, those opponents have become more and more vocal - arguing back against a world where Beyonce stands in front of a “feminism” banner and women begin to see work towards a more equal society. Here’s the thing that happens; here are the counter…

Five Ways You Can Be The Perfect Pet Owner

Being a dog owner is a lot more responsibility than you might think it is.

Here are some tips to help you out.

Give Them Plenty Of Exercise First of all, it’s important to make sure that your dog gets plenty of exercise. That doesn’t just entail taking them for a walk every now and then - larger dogs will require a long walk of at least an hour twice a day, which is a really significant time commitment and something that you should consider when you’re deciding what sort of dog to adopt. If you don’t have as much time or if your mobility isn’t quite as good, why not go for a smaller dog like a terrier mix or a chihuahua? You’ll still need to make sure that they get out for plenty of exercise but it won’t be as taxing on you.
