3 Ways To Get Your Mind Right After a Break Up

It could be devastating when a relationship ends.

You cry yourself to sleep, you question your self-worth, you will have pity party, and it will feel like the end of the world.  The good news is, it isn’t.

The end of a relationship is just that—end of the relationship.  It’s not the end of the world.  So get up, say a prayer, wipe your tears and try your best to stay occupied with things that will take your mind off of your heartbreak. Remember… ” an idle mind is the devil’s workshop”. The more you stay busy doing fun things, the things you love to do, the less time you’ll have to entertain the devil’s lies or stress over what could have been or plot your revenge. When we try to take matters into our own hands, we only make a mess of the situation. When we take a step back and let God work, it’s easier to accept the things we cannot change. 

Here’s 3 Ways To Get Your Mind Right After a Break Up:

Travel  

Travel back to your favorite vacation spot or go fly to a new place.  You may travel on your own, with your best buddy, or with the whole gang.  Whichever makes you more comfortable and whatever you think will be helpful, go for it.  Traveling makes gives you a breath of fresh air literally.  When you see new places and experience different cultures, you see things in a different way.  You change your perspective and your spirit gets a reboot.  Traveling can make you think clearly.  New experiences can be refreshing.  Seeing new places can help you forget about what you left behind.  

Get a new hobby  

Start doing what you have always wanted to do.  It is never too late to pursue an old dream or start a new one.  Enroll to classes.  Research companies or organizations that offer to teach what you have always wanted to learn.  Go out and get into sports if that is your thing.  Buy new sets of books to read.  Call a friend who has been doing something you are interested in.  Be more productive.  Now that you have all the time in the world to do whatever your heart desires, don’t waste a single moment of it.

Reconnect with friends  

Be with people whom you know will not judge you, will sympathize with you, but at the same time won’t let you ruin your life and waste your time grieving for a long time over your lost love.  Find a person who will listen to you and will talk you back to your senses.  Get yourself a support group who will lift you and help you stand up.

Endings mark new beginnings.  But beginnings will not start until you let go of the past.  You can’t start a new chapter if you keep coming back to the last one.  

Your relationship may have ended, but it shouldn’t end your relationship with others.  So don’t shut yourself from the world and stop living.  No matter what state you are in, life goes on.  So should you.
