You might find these helpful on overcoming a breakup:
1) Do not be too hard on yourself:
While you may feel low and unloved, the end of a relationship does not have to mean you stay on your own forever. The next person to walk through the door might be your lucky lover. In the meantime do things that will make you happy. If you wanted to see some shows and films that you would love to see, grab some friends and head out for the evening.
2) Do not show your emotion as being desperate:
Desperation is not an attractive emotion in anyone. If you want your ex to take you back, you need to appear what they are missing. Do not be someone who is miserable all the time. They want the person they originally fell in love with.
Despite of how you are feeling you always need to show your best in public. Dress nicely so you look great and above all have a good smile on your face. Even if you feel like you are going to die from the pain, you never know when you will meet your ex or a mutual friend, so act happy, even if it is only a performance.
3) Move On with your life:
Feeling miserable after a break up is natural but do not dwell in self pity, you generally end up feeling worse. There is more to life than looking behind to your chattered dream, so get out there and start enjoying yourself. You may have to pretend for a while but soon you will find that you are actually having fun again.
4) Do not be carried way and think what went wrong:
We learn from our mistakes but the breakup may not have been your fault. It could simply be that the other person got scared of commitment. If you get in contact , agree to meet for a drink and see how things go. Be polite and listen to what have to be said. If they want you back, do not be too eager, but agree to see how it goes.
If you were the one who finished things, but now realize you made a mistake, tell your ex. They are not mind readers and they would not know you want to rekindle your love affair unless you tell them.
Men and women often get things wrong as we see life so differently. Sometimes we have to be apart from our partner before we realize the true value of one another. Often a break and a little communication goes a long way to overcoming a breakup and getting back together.
