Relationships are hard work, but what's even harder than that is picking yourself up when they end-especially if it's sudden! You just ended a relationship and now you also have to figure out how to recover from a breakup. You've got your work cut out for you, but it can be done. If you want to learn how to fight through the pain and become stronger, than look no further than what you'll find here. I've been there and it hurts like hell! But I can tell you what I did in order to get to where I am today. Here's how to recover from a breakup.

1. I Reflected on the "marriage" and Decided That I Didn't Want It

(Your reaction) Thank you!

I gave back my rings because they meant nothing and I left. That's the first step to learning how to recover from a breakup.

2. My Feelings Were Neither Right nor Wrong

(Your reaction) Thank you!

They just were and I lived with EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.

3. I Did My Best to Take Care of Myself when I Was Able

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Infidelity is crippling. It is the WORST pain I have ever experienced.

4. I Journaled like a Mad WoMan

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This can help you work through your emotions.

5. I Cried a LOT

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Crying is a great release for your pent up anger, sadness and denial.

6. I Took Time for Myself by Going to Counseling

(Your reaction) Thank you!

You'd be amazed at how talking over the breakup with a neutral party can help.

7. I Never Made Threats or Gave Ultimatums That I Didn't Follow through with

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This helped me remain the bigger person.

8. I Gave Myself a Break

(Your reaction) Thank you!

I didn't need to speak to my husband. He abandoned us. We needed nothing from him. That alone actually made a world of difference. I despised getting his texts "inquiring" about a baby he left behind. When I didn't hear from him, I was ok.

9. I Never Took the Blame for What He Did

(Your reaction) Thank you!

It wasn't my burden to carry, but it didn't hurt any less.

10. I Refused to Bottle Things up inside

(Your reaction) Thank you!

I know myself and I would have done something that would have destroyed me. I allowed myself to feel EVERYTHING. I let it out during my workouts. I am in the best shape of my life because of that. Ironic, isn’t it?

11. The Other Woman Wasn't an Issue, until She Was

(Your reaction) Thank you!

I didn't care about her. I rarely asked about her. My beef was with my husband. She chose to insert herself into my life, six restraining orders later and we are still going at it. As far as I'm concerned, she can have him, he means nothing to me.

12. The Healing Process Has Begun and I Am Coping

(Your reaction) Thank you!

With time, you'll start to feel better and will return to your life.

13. I Know "WHY"

(Your reaction) Thank you!

But it doesn't even matter. He doesn't matter unless it concerns our child.

14. I Feel down Often and That's Ok

(Your reaction) Thank you!

It's to be expected. No need to rush.

15. I'm in Charge of the Choices I Make and Take Responsibility for Those Choices

(Your reaction) Thank you!

And that helps me get through each day in a healthy way.

16. By Surviving, I Know I Will Amass Strength and Coping Strategies

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Maybe even beyond what I’d ever expected of myself or knew I was capable of.

17. I'm Not Looking to Get into Another Relationship

(Your reaction) Thank you!

I realize that it is not fair to the other person.
