One of the most difficult parts after a breakup is managing friendships. And while you might still want to nurture those relationships, now is the perfect time to build your own friendships, ones that are free of reminders, mentions, or unexpected appearances by your ex. New friendships offer a fresh perspective and a way to open your mind and heart to new things. However, building new friendships as an adult feels like so much work. Take on a new hobby that involves you leaving the house, such as ing a book club or taking some cooking classes.
One of the hardest things to do after you break up with someone is re-adapt to being single. Have you spent some quality time with yourself? Allow yourself to feel all the feelings — even the ugly ones that make you want to throw stuff against the wall.
You can own up to the role you played in the breakup. Part of moving on is being able to own up to your own personal BS and mistakes — even if that mistake was dating your ex in the first place.
I learned the hard way that sometimes getting your stuff back from an ex cough. However, if getting back your treasured, perfectly worn hoodie or epic snow-globe collection is crucial to your sense of well-being, you need to get that crap back as soon as possible and before you move on to dating again.
This is a big one. No one wants to date the person who is still obsessed with their ex. Take time to process the breakup.
