Separation from a person you love can be challenging but can be dealt with the help of a few tips


A break up or a separation from a person, you have spent some quality time and learned lessons, is never pleasant. It takes time but ultimately you need to move on and look in to what you have in store for future. Some separations could be easy, while some could be tough to deal with. But there are a few ways that could help you to get over it in the best possible way. Here are a few tips.

1. Ask yourself what exactly is bothering you post separation – There could be a number of factors like feeling of loneliness, or dependence on your partner for other factors than emotional support. This will allow you to identify what your mind is going through.

2. Accept the fact – It is easy to say than done. But one of the toughest things to do is to accept the fact that the person is no longer a part of our lives. It is also important to keep aside all the grudges (if any) against the person as it will allow you to be at peace and move forward peacefully.

3. Do not take a revenge – Taking revenge will make you restless and angry. It can make things ugly. It is best to let go and forgive yourself or the person for whatever has happened.

4. Give yourself some time – Things do not turn around instantly. Time heals every wound gradually. It is not like any switch that you can turn on and turn it off. Healing process takes some time.

5. Do not neglect your feelings – It is normal to be vulnerable at such testing times and you do not have to always show off the tough side of you. It is very normal to have a meltdown and share things with a person who you can confide with.

6. Keep a distance – Make sure that you don’t look for any opportunities to get back to your ex. This will make it tough for you to move on.
