Surviving The Break Up
Q. How can I get through this?
A. First of all, it’s totally normal to feel hurt, angry, lost, or lonely when a relationship ends. Rather than trying to bury and ignore these feelings, it’s better to confront and face them head on.
Talk to someone! While family and friends are great support networks, don’t feel afraid to go and talk to a professional. The MSCD Counseling Center has on staff plenty of friendly people who are there for you.
Spend some time with yourself. If you are coming out of a long-term relationship, you may need to get back in touch with some of the things that you as an individual enjoy. A little quality time alone can be very therapeutic!
Be good to yourself. Try not to punish or abuse yourself, it is very important to try to eat well, exercise and sleep. If you’re hard on your body you may only make yourself feel worse!
An experience is only a loss if you didn’t learn anything. Try to reflect on the positive aspects of your situation. Think about what went wrong in the relationship and how to keep those same things from happening again in the future.
