11 Ways to Keep Your Mind off a Breakup ...


If you’ve been through a breakup recently or maybe even not so recently, you might be looking for ways to keep your mind off a breakup.

We all know breakups are awful and hard to get through.

You feel like you’re missing a piece of you and it can seem like nothing or no one can help you get through this horrible time.

While you want to allow yourself time to grieve, you don’t want to spend endless hours fixating on the past and trying to figure out what went wrong.

Keep reading below for some helpful ways to keep your mind off a breakup and cope.3

1. Cut off Contact

Cut off Contact

One of the best ways to keep your mind off a breakup is to avoid any contact with your ex.

Calling, texting, emailing or checking for updates on social media outlets isn’t likely going to change anything, and holding on to the hope that there could possibly be a reconciliation won’t allow you to live your life and move forward.

Don’t tempt or torture yourself by trying to keep in contact with your ex.

It’ll only make recovery harder and it’ll make artificially idealizing your ex and the relationship easier.



Me n my bf broke up 4 months ago. He wanted to stay as friends. Initially he did texted me at least once a week. Recently he stopped texting me n I'm the one who started to text him first. I still love him. The reason he wanted to broke up is because we are different and he don't wan me to be hurt because of that. Although sometimes I did think that we are different maybe we r not the right person for each other but When I look back at our past two years relationship,All the happiness we had together I really don't feel like letting it go. I am hoping to reconcile it. But ppl change throughout the time. MayB be are not meant together. I'm so confused that whether I should let it go n stop being friend with him or try harder to reconcile and get him back.
Very Helpful.
My bf and I broke up a month ago and we decided to stay friends so we've been texting a bit since then usually started by me. Last week I decided to stop texting him but then he texted me five days later( even when we dated he was horrible at texting first) and I was really short with him and told him I had to go out to a party. And then yesterday he texted me AGAIN. Why? It makes it so much harder. I was feeling so good and finally happy but then when he starts acting like he cares it makes me start from square one all over again.
