Whether you've just broken up with a significant other , separating from someone you loved is never easy. At times, it may feel like you'll never be happy again — that this person was your one chance in life for feeling loved and now they're gone. Don't give into these thoughts. The truth is that with positivity, patience, and determination, you can always work your way out of the darkness of a romantic split.

1-Get rid of things that remind you of him/her:Eventually, you will be able to think about your old partner without being overcome with emotion. This time is not now. At this point, being reminded of your time together with this person can lead to intense feelings of nostalgia, sadness, and regret. For this reason, it's a good idea to get rid of things in your life that remind you of your relationship. If there are items you can't stand to throw away, try packing them into boxes and keeping them somewhere out of the way for the near future.

2-Avoid contact with this person:When you are forced to see this person, keep your conversations as short and polite as possible. This may be hard, but it's important. Interacting can lead to awkward exchanges where both partners are thinking about the old relationship. You may even fall back into old ways with your ex and start flirting. In any case, this is almost never a good way to get over your split.

3-Boost your spirits with physical activity.

4-Accept that you loved this person but that this is in the past:Love can be perfectly real without being forever. You can love someone else deeply for a time but have that love come to an end. Just because it ended doesn't mean it was a waste of time.

5-Always value yourself:Remember that you are the most important person in your life. Keeping this in mind will make it easier to focus on yourself rather than on a missing partner. Be confident in many positive qualities and accept your flaws - everyone has. Focus on being the best person you can be. Happiness does not come from other people but from within yourself.

6-Look forward to the future:At one point, it may have seemed like you would never be happy again. As time passes, this idea will start to seem less and less reasonable. The fact is that you can always look forward to a brighter future. There are always new people to meet, new experiences to seek out, and bright new days to look forward to. Your happiness isn't determined by what happened in the past — it's determined by what you have in store for the future.
