10 tips for overcoming bad relationships You might think that surviving the pain of separation is misery, but let's check the reality:
there is a silver lining here too. As a dating coach, I think unhappy relationships teach us a lot.
1. Pain brings gain
Lucky people who fall in love as a teenager and marry their high school sweetheart may consider themselves content, but we, the more experienced, know that only through pain that you learn to fully appreciate good things.
Once you recognize how it feels when someone else does it to you, it makes you a lot more careful not to do the same things yourself.
You also choose which signs to watch out for, if there is a pattern of behavior of a person. Take a look back and assess what went wrong and how you might notice it sooner. Once you think about it, you'll feel happier about letting it go.
You can find a relationship or dating coach online to help you with the process.
Get a medical checkup, join a gym, or hire a personal trainer. Join a dance class. Eat healthier. Go to bed and get up early. Go for a walk every day. These simple steps allow you to clear your mind and feel more alive at the same time.
3. Treat yourself to what you love
When you're in a relationship with someone, you constantly have to make a lot of sacrifices. Being alone, you can do whatever you want.
It's good to spend a day in your pajamas if that's what you like. Get this collectible you always looked at on eBay. Why not?
4. Erase the presence of the past
Get rid of all the memories that remind you of the person who hurt you. Shoot photos, delete files from social networks and computers. Donate their gifts to charity or just throw them in a trash can.
5. Laugh with all your heart
There was a guy who was able to cure cancer by watching funny movies. If it works even on physical ailments, it is even more effective in cheering you up.
As a life coach, I often see clients thrive by following this simple tip. Download comedies and laugh out loud.
Read jokes online. She is allowed to smile and laugh even if she is going through a bad breakup.
6. Help others
You may think that your life is a total sadness, but there are people who are less fortunate than you. Contact a charity or simply offer to train the kids at a local school.
7. Call a friend
Treating a heart ache is simpler when there are people around. Even if you don't feel like it, reach out to friends and family, reconnect, and spend time together.
8. Have a makeover
Girls do it every time, so why not follow what works? Book a good hairdresser and get a new haircut.
Many shopping centers offer the services of a professional stylist for free if you buy clothes there. Department store sales assistants will also enjoy helping you build a new wardrobe.
Seriously, any relationship coach knows that by changing your appearance, you instantly elevate yourself emotionally. The way others see you will also change.
9. Try online dating
After a successful makeover, why not try it out safely using trusted online dating sites or apps. You don't even have to meet women in person if you're not ready.
Just talking to other singles is a great way to overcome bad feelings from the past. There are definitely some beautiful women in this world who think you are a good catch.
10. Start somewhere
Wallowing in your own sorrows is a great way to pass the time, but there's no point in moving forward.
Plan activities you could do tomorrow and this week. Maybe do something now without thinking too much. Start somewhere and the situation will improve.
