Get your ex back: Four Tips to Thrive after a Breakup
Below are some tips to feel better, overcome a breakup, get your life back AND get your ex back. # 1 Don’t act desperate Desperation is not attractive. If you want to back together with your ex after a breakup, you need to show them that they are missing out on a good thing. They won’t want someone who is miserable all the time - they will want the person they originally fell in love with. Despite how you may be feeling, present the best side of yourself in public. Dress nicely, look great and wear a smile on your face - even if you want stay home and hide under the covers. You never know who you will run into, maybe your ex or maybe a mutual friend who will report back to your ex. Act happy even if it is the performance of your lifetime! # 2 Don’t put your life on hold There is more to life than being in a relationship so start enjoying yourself! Feeling miserable after a break up is natural, but if you wallow in self pity all day you generally end up feeling worse. You may have to pretend you are not in pain for a while but soon you will find that you are actually having fun again. Now is the time to do all the things you wanted to do but didn’t because your partner was not interested. # 3 Treat yourself well The end of a relationship doesn’t have to mean that you will be alone forever. The relationship may have ended for any number of reasons and Mr or Ms Right could be right around the corner. Be good to yourself. Call your friends, go out for the evening and see what happens! Be open to having fun and meeting new people. # 4 Don’t over analyze the breakup Don’t blame yourself, either. While we need to learn from our mistakes, keep in mind that the breakup may not have been your fault. Maybe the relationship had run its course. Maybe your partner became scared of commitment. There are many reasons for relationships to end. If your ex contacts you, go ahead and agree to meet with them and see how things go, if that’s what you want to do. Be polite and listen to what they have to say. If they want you back, don’t be too eager. However you may want to agree to see how it goes.
If you were the one who ended the relationship, and now realize that you made a mistake, tell your ex. They wonâ€™t know unless you tell them. Be prepared for their response. You may need to give them time and space to digest the breakup and the fact that you made a mistake and want them back. Men and women view life differently, and because of this they may not always get things right. Sometimes couples need time away, and even a split, to realize what they had. Keep the lines of communication open. This will help to overcome a breakup and get your ex back.
