Getting over a bad breakup is not easy. The person you thought you would spend the rest of the life with is suddenly gone. You have to understand that this is life; people come and go, but the show must not stop. You have to keep moving, and you cannot pause your life for anyone.
These are the steps you can follow to find a way back to happiness after a bad breakup. Yes, there is happiness beyond that one person you believed was the sole reason for your happiness.
Ways to Find Happiness After a Bad Breakup
1) Block Them
This is the first and foremost step to attaining happiness after a bad breakup. Stop stalking them on social media. Stop checking their WhatsApp status and profile pictures. Throw away all their gifts, photographs, and any memories which remind you of them.
Do it for 2 months and I bet after 2 months you will not even feel the need to unblock them or check their social profiles from time to time. You have to understand the fact that they are gone and you have to keep moving on because life waits for no one.
2) Discover Yourself
A bad breakup is the best time to start concentrating on yourself. Before trying to understand other people, you have to understand yourself as a person. You need to discover who you are as an individual. What you are apart from being a girlfriend or a partner. Find your strength and your weakness.
Work on them and be the person you always wanted to be. Only you can help yourself, find ways to overcome your fears and weakness, and aim at being a better person each day.
3) Follow your Dream
A breakup is the perfect time for you to give all your time to your dreams. You can find out what you want to do in life and can actually start working on it. You can give all your time to yourself and your career. You can give all your love and attention to your dreams. Achieving your dreams is the biggest gift you can give to yourself. Your dreams need you more than anyone else in the world.
4) Find a New Hobby
When was the last time you started a new hobby? If you always wanted to travel the world then do it now, if you always wanted to learn a musical instrument or learn a new sport, then do it. You have only one life, don’t stop yourself from learning new skills. It’s fun, and also, you never know, you can be the next MF Hussain!
5) Forgive Them and Yourself
Stop the hatred. You have to stop hating them for what they did to you. The hatred will keep reminding you of how they have hurt you. Don’t you want peace in life? And for that, you have to forgive them. Tell yourself to let it be and then forget them.
Forgive yourself, stop blaming yourself for everything. So, what if you chose the wrong partner? You didn’t know it would end like this. You are human, and you make mistakes; don’t dwell on them. You have to forgive yourself for living peacefully.
Your happiness is in your hands, only you can make yourself happy, and only you can pick yourself up and help yourself stand tall again. No one else defines you, this is your life, and you are choosing to be happy.
