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. 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.

Make a Plan…

Aww! I'm so sorry Anna! It is all about time. I know you miss him, but if it truly was a bad relationship, you'll find someone that will be great to you!

That's a good thing, definitely keep being positive, but also work through your own self too -- grieve the relationship.

It's Harding when a child is involved. But life goes on. I just work extra hard being positive.
