Breakups are never fun, everyone will experience a breakup at some point. These experiences can be difficult and may leave you feeling like you’ll never love again. Out of all the breakups I’ve experienced, I found that there is a way to grow from them and make them better than they actually are. In this blog post, I will explain how to get over a breakup and use the experience to become stronger and wiser.

Accept the change

The first stage of healing from a breakup is accepting that it's over, and there's nothing you can do to change that. It seems like common sense, but it's important to understand that you can't turn back the clock. You can't make them love you. You can't make the relationship work. If they've broken up with you, they're not going to change their mind.

Trying to force a reconciliation by contacting your ex-girlfriend or boyfriend, begging them to give you another chance, or using other manipulative tactics (such as trying to win them back) will only make things worse. They'll resent your efforts and feel manipulated and used.

Accepting the end of the relationship doesn't mean you have to stop caring about your ex-girlfriend or boyfriend or stop loving them. It simply means you accept that things did not work out for reasons beyond your control. This is an important step in the healing process because it allows you to begin moving on with your life.

Feel your feelings

The most important thing to know about a breakup is that it's okay to feel all the feelings you have. It's normal to feel sad, angry, and confused. You can't avoid those emotions. They are part of the healing process.

The sooner you accept that you're going to have a full range of emotions, the sooner you will be able to move on from your breakup.

As a survivor of multiple heartbreaks, I know how difficult it can be to come back to yourself. First of all, you need to acknowledge that your feelings are real. The human mind is skilled at self-deception and rationalization, so it's easy to convince yourself that the breakup is no big deal.

Trouble is, your mind will use whatever tricks it can think of to make you feel better in the moment. But these tricks come at a price: they prevent you from processing your feelings in a healthy way, which leads to more problems down the road.

When I was younger and a relationship ended, I'd become obsessed with my ex, unable to get them out of my head. I'd spend hours analyzing every word or gesture we shared, convinced I'd missed some hidden meaning or secret message. Only when someone forced me to see things rationally would this behavior stop; otherwise it would take weeks or months before I could fully move on.

This type of obsession is common after a breakup, especially if the relationship was intense or lasted for years. That's why it's important not to ignore your feelings -- doing so only makes them stronger

Understand what happened,to prevent from happening again

It's not easy to get over a breakup, but with the right perspective, you can learn a lot from the experience. The first part of the healing process is understanding what happened. You won't achieve this by blaming yourself or your ex. However, you need to understand what happened so that you don't make the same mistakes again in the future.

Treat breakups like an opportunity for growth. If your partner was cheating on you or using drugs, you don't want their behavior anywhere near you. Some other relationship dynamics can be handled differently, though: if your partner criticized you for being too needy or jealous, it's worth considering whether that's true and addressing the issue as necessary.

it is important to understand what happened so you can avoid making the same mistakes again.

See if any of these situations describe your recent heartbreak, these are the following the top reasons people get heartbroken:

1. Unrealistic Expectations: You expect your partner to behave in certain ways without having discussed those expectations with him or her. When you find yourself disappointed, it's hard not to blame your partner for failing to live up to your expectations. But if you hadn't discussed those expectations, it's unfair of you to blame him or her for not meeting them.

2. Lack of Commitment: If a person isn't ready to commit, then don't force him or her into it. Sometimes trying to force someone into making a commitment leads them to push back when they finally do commit, because it was something they were forced into doing instead of something they want out of love for you. By giving someone space, they will either realize how much they care about you and come back or move on completely once they see you aren't going anywhere and are okay with waiting for them.

If any of these situations sound familiar, you might be doing something wrong in your relationships that keeps making them fail. If this is the case, you should take some time after your breakup to reflect on what happened, why it happened, and how you can prevent it from happening again in the future.

Take care of yourself, taking care of yourself helps you be better for yourself and for others

When you're going through the worst experience of your life -- a breakup -- you should be kind to yourself, because while it's normal to put other people's needs before your own when you have a broken heart, taking care of yourself is crucial during a breakup: not only does it help you make better decisions for yourself, but it also helps you move on.

The most painful part of a breakup isn't the loss of the relationship itself, it's the loss of hope for what might have been and what could still be. It's doubting that there will ever be another person who could make you as happy as this one did. It's wondering what part of you would have had to die for this relationship to work out.

It's sitting with your heart in pieces and not knowing how or when they'll ever mend again.

But they will mend, if you let them. They will mend, if you give yourself time and space to heal and don't rush into anything else right away.

If you feel like you're "hovering" over your ex or texting/calling them too much, take a step back from that behavior. This can be hard when you feel hurt or scared about the future, but it will help you heal faster.

So get out there, get moving and make new friends. Take up a new hobby, volunteer at a homeless shelter, join a club or start hanging out with people who make you feel good about yourself. Don't waste your energy on people who are toxic to you or whose interest in you is purely sexual. The more positive energy you put out into the world, the more of it will come back to you in ways that will surprise and delight you.

You can heal from a breakup and it even makes you better in the end

Getting over a breakup is never easy. It can take weeks, months or even years to fully heal from a break up and move on. But there are ways to get yourself back into the mindset of a happy person and start putting yourself out there again.

The most important thing for you to do is take care of yourself during this time. You may be tempted to wallow in self pity, but it's important to focus on the positive side of things rather than what you lost. A little alone time is good too, so you can reflect on where things went wrong. That way you'll know what to change in your next relationship.

Once you've had some time to think about things and let go of your emotions, it's time to start moving forward with your life again. One way to do this is by reaching out to friends and family for support. Some people find professional help in the form of a therapist helpful as well.

Focus on changing those things about yourself that caused the problems in the first place so that you won't repeat them again when you're ready to date again. Make an effort to fix any issues that might have led your ex-boyfriend or girlfriend away from you in the first place.

At the end of the day, if you want to heal from a breakup, all you really need is time. What’s more, keeping things in perspective will help you a lot. The more time passes, the less important your ex will become to you. Even if they seemed completely irreplaceable at first (and we all have an ex like that), they soon become just a faded memory, and then nothing except some old photographs and maybe a few dozen text messages. As long as you don’t allow yourself to spiral down into despair, it can be an experience that only makes you better in the end.
