5 Effective Ways to Let Go and Move On
Written by Sam Mr on September 20, 2018
Nothing can keep you from a happier future than a lingering relationship wound. We’ve all been there: Experiencing good love gone bad is painful. It doesn’t really matter what the circumstances were, or who was right and who was wrong. The bottom line is that it hurts and that the pain is preventing you from moving forward.
If you’re currently dealing with this process you may feel a bit awkward, and that’s OK. This feeling is normal. I’ve been right there with you on more occasions than I can count.
Here are 5 ways you can move on from
- Cut off contact.
Do this at least for a little while. No, you do not need to be friends. Keeping an ex in your life is not by itself a sign of maturity; knowing how to take care of yourself and your emotional well-being is.
2. Let go of the fantasy.
Many people don’t realize that a large majority of the pain they experience during a break-up has nothing to do with the relationship they really had.
3. Drop your fear. It is holding you back. – Part of letting go and moving on is facing the fears and disappointments of the past that are binding your spirit.
4. Accept the truth and be thankful. – To let go is to be thankful for the experiences that made you laugh, made you cry, and helped you learn and grow.
5. Change the people around you. – Some people come into your life just to strengthen you, so you can move on without them. They are supposed to be part of your memory, not your destiny.
