Getting over someone you love is one of the hardest things you will have to do but there are some ways to help push you in the “moving on” direction.
They’re called break-up hacks but don’t be fooled. This is not a how to stalk your ex. This is for you to move on.
Now this won’t take the pain away but it will help keep you from going back to something that may not be good for you right now.
Renaming your Ex
Instead of leaving that cute nickname you had for that person or simply their name, rename their contact name into something that will help remind you why you broke up. For instance you can put, “Love Yourself” or “Cheater” or “Don’t Answer.” Anything that will help you. This is obviously for the people who can’t just delete the contact since they already know their exes number by heart. So each time you think about contacting your ex, you’ll be reminded why you shouldn’t.
If you’re feeling down, opt to put some daily reminders that will help cheer you up. Add positive notes like “You are loved” and “Tomorrow will be better.” You can even put in inspiring quotes that will give you a daily boost.
Get Rid Of It
Anything that reminds you of your ex needs to either get thrown away or put in some box and stuffed in some place that you will not see it for a long time. This will help change your mentality from thinking about the person all the time.
Do Things That Make You Happy
When you find that you’re mind starts slipping and going toward thoughts of your ex, opt to do things that make you happy. Even if that doesn’t happen, just take the time to love yourself and do things that just make you happy. Love yourself.
