It’s a normal thing to get attached to your boyfriend but there are situations where you need to entangle that knot and move on. Breakups are inevitable, life doesn’t revolve around the same person, you have your own life and it doesn’t mean that your world has shut down when everything is over, sometimes you should treat it as a chance to live your life to the fullest and explore new beginnings, “never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be an option.”- Mark Twain

1. Pursue your dreams.

Instead of crying and getting depressed, you should treat it as an opportunity to dedicate your time to pursue your dreams . “To heal a wound, you need to stop touching it” (anonymous) you shouldn’t look back to the time spent with him, but rather anticipate the beginning of a new day, because with every rise of the sun new opportunities are born. You should know your worth because he never treasured you and it’s his loss. Close some doors not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance but because they no longer lead somewhere. -Anonymous

2. Make new memories.

You should get rid of all things that reminds you of him. It could be pictures, videos or anything. Keeping them around will just add to your pain, it will keep you back from starting a new life, everyday will seem like he still exists in your life. Go visit new places, avoid areas you always hang out at while you were still dating him. “A very wise man once told me that you can’t look back, you just have to put the past behind you and find something better in the future.”(Jodi picoult), hence you shouldn’t hold onto those memories tightly but let them go so you can create better ones.

3. Go out with friends.

Attend parties, girls night out, boat cruise even sports. It helps relieve the stress you had all built up after the breakup. Sometimes when times are tough you need someone to hold your hand and that could be a friend. A friendship can mean to last a life time longer than love. Friends are people who will help you when your down and going out might help you get over everything and move on. “One of the most courageous decisions is to let go of what is hurting your heart and soul.”-Brigitte Nicole

4. Get into a new relationship.

Sometimes getting into a new relationship is the fastest way to let go and forget someone. When a new door opens, you should explore it, don’t look back at the tightly closed door. Sometimes our lives have to be completely shaken up, changed, and rearranged to relocate us to the place where we are meant to be.- anonymous. Hence it can be the best thing to do, getting into a new relationship might help you break the barrier and get over everything.

5. Become a brand new you.

Go shopping, change your wardrobe, your hair. Gain confidence and live your life. “Life is lived once, you either live it happy or live it trying to please those who don’t care about you.”-tina11 you shouldn’t care about someone who don’t even think about you neither do care. Get about with your daily life, look beautiful, many will come knocking at your door. There are plenty of fish in the sea, why should you insist on eating a single fish. It’s no use crying over spilt milk because you can’t gather it back like wise it’s no use getting stuck on an old relationship. Move on! No man can rule your life!

“If you’re brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new HELLO!” -Paul Coelho
