Ending a relationship is hard, regardless of who took the decision to end it. Well, the bad news is that a lot of people are going through a heartbreak on a daily basis, which means you are neither the first victim nor the last. But the good news, however, is that a breakup is not the worst feelings ever.

I have been in multiple relationships before and yes its definitely traumatic at times. This is because we are obsessed with someone and boom! they are just gone and you can’t seem to think normally and you lose your interest in everything around you.

I have compiled the following 6 scientific actions to help reduce the pain you are suffering right now:

    1. Be Calm: You have just suffered a breakup, you need to be super calm. This is not the time to think or take any decision concerning anything in your life. I repeat, do not take any decision concerning your life at this time. Once you’re sure that the breakup is confirmed by your partner, politely ask your partner not to text/call at least for the first 2 to 3 days. You need these days to be in your senses, to have the final conversation and to think logically. Be with people you love, or your closest friends. No drinking, no smoking and definitely no violence. Most importantly, don’t blame yourself for what happened. It’s not your fault. some things in life are just meant to happen
    2. Keep Good Distance: It is not uncommon that your partner will ask you to remain friends with him/her,  please be sure to decline it.  Completely cut all contact with him/her. If you are looking for a magical pill which will take all your breakup pain away, this is that pill. Block them from all social media and delete their number. That person doesn’t exist for you anymore. Stay away from his/her friends and family.
    3. Maintain A “No Contact” For The Next 7 Days: Now, this is the toughest part. You have to start accepting the fact that the person doesn’t exist anymore, in your life or otherwise. I know you will constantly feel the urge to stalk them on social media or even text them. DO NOT. This will only take you back to Day 1.
    4. Realize it’s okay to feel sad. Feeling sad means you have a heart. It means you are capable of love. You just had a break up, trust me, you are going to feel sad, angry and even scared that you are going to end up alone. Just be yourself. When you feel like crying, cry your heart out. Do NOT hold back your tears. This will help you to vent a little.
    5. Socialize: Instead of cocooning under your blanket, call up your supportive and compassionate friends, meet them and let them what you are going through and how you are feeling. You should not whine, but you should talk. They will surely listen to you, which will help a lot. Don’t isolate yourself but instead meet new people and don’t be far from your family.
    6. Invest In Yourself: Finally, you should start working on yourself, both mentally and physically. Begin to think of the things you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t, or always wanted to do but didn’t have time because you were in a relationship. This is the time to really invest in yourself and follow your heart. There’s no other time in your life where you’ll be where you are with no one to balance needs/desires with. Go to the store or library and get that book a friend has been talking to you about. Start doing some good workouts a few times a week. Get a good sleep lasts between 7-8 hours. Eat balanced diets. Go to the store and buy those cloths and shoes you’be always wanted. Just take good care of yourself. You want to make sure that the next time your partner (now your ex) sees you, they quickly realize what a gem they’ve lost.


NOTE: Throughout this, you’ll still feel sad. You’ll still wonder how and why it all went wrong while reminiscing over the good times you’ve shared together and feel like you’re spitting up poison over the bad.

Keep acknowledging and accepting the sadness is there. Keep forgiving yourself and giving yourself compassion.

This is a really tough time. No matter how many breakups you go through or how much you saw it coming, it hurts. Keep treating yourself the way you would a good friend. You’re worth it.
