It does not have to be so. The way you deal with the breakdown of a relationship either makes you a better person or kills you off. It always helps to make it a learning experience, so you can do what it takes to make the next one better and fulfilling. Here are some ways to deal with the end of your relationship.
1. Do not make it all about you
The first thing you need to do is stop blaming yourself for the way a relationship ended. It does not help anyone, especially you as guilt will take you nowhere but to the depths of depression. Look at what really caused the relationship to break and try to fix it if you can. It does not matter even if it is after years for it is never too late to heal a broken heart.
2. Do not have spite for the other person
Even if the other person had cheated on you or dumped you unceremoniously, learn to move on. Do not hold spite and waste your time thinking about a person who did not care about you in the first place. Life is full of opportunities and very soon you will find your space and also what you were looking for.
3. Surround yourself with friends, family and things that make you happy
The friends you have and your families are people who will always stand by you no matter what. They are also the people who will patiently listen to whatever you have to say even if your relationship is all you talk about. Find new things to do, explore and get it out of your mind.
