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.

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.

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.

2. Make a Plan…

Getting through the days can be tough after a break-up, and you might feel that all the days and nights are merging into one long hard stretch.

Don’t look into the future just yet.

Instead, focus on now.

What do you need to do today?

What would you like to do?

Accept your limitations, and don’t overwhelm yourself, but set yourself a target to have a shower, file some paperwork, watch a comedy, make lunch.

You’ll feel much better for it.

3. Be Positive…

Okay, so it hurts like hell right now, and you are probably agreeing with every tormented love song you can find, and sobbing uncontrollably whenever you remember the good times.

It can be very easy to lose your positivity and become bitter and isolated, especially when you are wounded.

Hey, having no contact with anyone means they can’t hurt you, right?

But islands don’t last long on their own.

They sink.

Don’t let yourself become an island, and limit any withdrawals.

Even minimal contact with friends through email or voicemail is good progress.
