Breakups are not easy, and they can leave you with a broken heart and anger. Everyone handles breakups differently, but here are a few tips on what can help you deal with one:
Allow yourself to cry and express the emotions you are feeling.
Talk about your feelings to loved ones who can comfort you. You can also contact counsellors for help.
Take time to figure out what worked and what didn’t.
Do things for yourself e.g. journal, exercise, take walks and listen to music
Do things to hurt your ex just because you are hurt!
Post negative comments about your ex on social media.
Stalk their social media to see what they are doing. This will only hurt you.
Use alcohol or take drugs to cope with your feelings.
Keep things bottled up inside. Find someone to talk to or talk to a counsellor.
