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.

The new year is fast approaching and many of us are looking to turn a new leaf and create a new image for ourselves.

Here are just a few areas that you might like to focus on to get the ball rolling the right direction!
Hair
Your hairstyle can dramatically impact your overall appearance - it can speak volumes about your personality, influences, and interests if you want it to. Now, many of us stick to very safe styles that blend into the crowd. This is why you see so many people with their natural hair shades, long locks and blunt cuts with centre partings. But why not switch things up a bit. You don’t necessarily have to shave the sides and dye your hair a wild colour. A few subtle changes can make all the difference! Consider a fringe, switching to a natural colour that doesn’t happen to b…

Confidence. It’s a word that nearly every woman uses to describe anyone but herself. To be confident, you have to be secure within yourself. You have to believe in yourself. When you’re at work or with your friends, it’s likely that you feel envious of those who come across as confident and together, when actually most people are totally faking it and just as insecure and worrisome as you are. But, what makes someone confident? Is it the clothes that they wear? Is it the security of their bank account? Is it a sheer rejection of anything that resembles conformity, so that they can be happy with exactly who they are? It’s likely a huge mix of all of those things. It’s often far easier to focus on flaws than it is to focus on what makes you beautiful, which is why confidence is such an issue among women.
