Did you just suffer a bad break up? Don't worry, you're not alone! Everyone has been there, and you might have to go through something similar again. If you've never broken up with someone, just wait—your day will come, too! No matter how many breakups you experience, they are all different and you have to deal with them in different ways. Here are a few of the most common types, as well as some tips for how to make the recovery go smoothly.
1. The Ideal Breakup
It sounds like an oxymoron...how can a breakup be ideal? Obviously there will be some drama, a few tears, and maybe emotional scars involved, but the "ideal breakup" is essentially a mutual one. No one is the victim and no one is to blame. You simply didn't work out and decided, together, that you weren't meant to be together. In order to deal with this situation, try to focus on the positive memories, but be realistic and don't fantasize about your time together as if it were perfect. Dealing with the breakup in a practical way will help you move on even faster.
