How to Let Go of a Past Relationship

Posted on :2013-04-15 in

“Watching you walk out of my life does not make me bitter or cynical about love. But rather makes me realize that if I wanted so much to be with the wrong person how beautiful it will be when the right one comes along.”

In crux, this is the best way to deal with broken relationships.

Easier said than done, we agree. But it is worth a try. A few steps to help you steer in the right direction –

Turn Over A New Leaf

Holding on to the past has never helped and never will. The sooner you accept it the better it will be. Life is meant to be lived. So live it out. Stop looking behind for shadows. Look forward for new rays.

Share With Friends

Bottling up your emotions will only make it get worse. It is believed that sorrow diminishes by sharing. Share it with a friend who’d empathize.
 

How to Let Go of a Past Relationship

There Is Someone Out There For You

It may be difficult for your raw nerves to believe in it right now, but there’s someone out there worthy of your affection -- someone else that is. Acknowledge that if it had to click, it would have. It’s better to let go what is not meant for you.

Forgive And Forget

Part of the healing process and diminishing the pain is to let go. Remembering the past and thinking of settling the score is never going to take you anywhere. Don’t hold on to the pent up emotions.

Create Barrier

So as not to agitate the wound it might be a good idea to sever contacts with your ex. Any attempt to being just friends should be nipped at the bud. Any contact with your ex may delay the healing process.

Be Matured Enough Not To Play The Blame Game

Blaming only makes you hold on to the past. There are always two sides to any coin. Every story has two aspects. Be matured to accept the differences. Accept that break-up is a mutual decision. Keep the process respectable.

Reconnect With Your Own Hobbies And Passion

Imbibe thrill and excitement to your life by nurturing a hobby that you are passionate about. We all know that empty mind is a devil’s workshop. Fill up your leisure with things you’d love to do.

Be Open To Meeting new People

Meet the world with an open mind. Shutting the world will not help in any way. Making new friends will bring positive vibe to your life.

Do Not Hurry Into Another Relationship

Take time to judge a person before jumping into a relationship. Don’t get into any commitment just to fill up a temporary vacuum.

Don’t Cling On To The Pain

Revisiting the past will only make you suffer – Stop. Pain would beget only pain. Let go and move on.

To conclude, realize that if your ex was the right one for you then the relationship would not have caused you tears. And if it wasn’t meant for you, the sooner you let it go the better.
