7 Tips for Getting over a Bad Relationship ...


It can take a seriously long time to get over a bad relationship.

Let’s face it, if life was like the movies, we’d spend the night in baggy clothes, eating ice-cream and crying, and then feel refreshed and rejuvenated enough to meet someone new the very next day.2

In reality, healing just isn’t that fast.

But how do you help yourself to heal as quickly as possible so you can get over a bad relationship?

1. Crying is Allowed…

Most people don’t like to wallow, and some completely refuse to cry.

In order to healthily get over a bad relationship, some crying is essential.2

It releases tension, stress and emotion, and helps you to process the break-up and heal.

Soon enough, you’ll find that you don’t need or want to cry anymore – and you’ll know you’ve turned a corner.

Stock up on soft tissues and cry it out when you need to.

Make a Plan…

I just went through a bad breakup TODAY. This article was practically sent to me from heaven. In the end all I can say is if you din't put yourself first, no one else will. I am so heartbroken, does anyone have some more advice?
"Trial seperation" for me... It's the hardest thing. You don't know if you should be getting over the relationship or if you're just staying stuck.

For anyone going through a break up, take good care of yourself. I'm going through one myself. I have those days were I'm crying but I remind myself that it's not the end of the world, it's just the end of a relationship with someone. Women, we deserve someone who treat us great.
