    Eliminate hope

    When a relationship ends, we sometimes cling to the hope of a reconciliation to cope with the fear and insecurity of being left alone.

    Continuing to hope that your loved one will sooner or later return, once their feelings or external conditions have changed, certainly gives us relief, but at the same time it does not allow us to to fully experience the loss.

    Staying attached to hope is like continuing to postpone the time to face the pain in all its depth, which is also the first and necessary step towards healing.


    So here's an important rule to follow for forget a love: Eliminate any form of hope that your relationship will have a second chance. Fully accept the fact that it's over between you, and that now it's just you with your pain


    Process the pain

    At this point it is right that you give yourself some time to mourn the loss, feel the emptiness it left in your life and live the pain to the fullest. Rather than escape from pain by throwing yourself on other activities, in a first phase I recommend that you face it and focus on it, through the exercise of "meditation on pain" and all the other techniques

    By dedicating the right time to grief and exploring negative emotions, you will be able to process them and bring them to fruition, returning to feel better faster.

    After this period, gradually begin to go out and to restart with your life, without letting the pain completely affect your days. When you are with friends or girlfriends, don't talk about your ex partner. When you go out and your ex comes to mind, put it off and try to enjoy the present moment. In the evening, you can still carve out an hour or two for your date with the pain and memory of your ex.

    If you follow this process right, you will see that within a few months you will no longer need to think about the person you love at all, as the pain will have done. its natural course, and you will be completely healed or healed.

    Remember that the greater the pain, the greater the lesson and growth opportunity you can draw from it.

    Recover your independence

    Being alone after living a long time with a person, it is normal to feel confused and ask oneself things like “what is the meaning of my life now?”, Or “who am I without him / her?”.

    This is precisely why you need to start find your identity: You were there before you met your ex, and you will always be there, regardless of whether he or she is with you or not.

    As discovered by this scientific research, quickly regaining an individual dimension after the end of a relationship, allows you to regain psychological well-being much more quickly.

    Here is what you could concretely do to find your identity:

    • return to cultivate the relationship with your friends;
    • go out and enjoy;
    • resume your hobbies that you had recently neglected;
    • sign up for a course (salsa, theater, yoga ...) and meet new people;
    • do something new, which you have never done in your life;
    • take a trip alone or with your friends;
    • have a nice time with your family.

    Go out with other people

    Starting a new relationship will be the final step, which will allow you to move on forever and permanently forget the person you were in love with or in love with before.

    This however is a delicate step, which will only have to happen after you have completed all the previous ones, as engaging in a new relationship too early could be one of the most wrong choices ever for your happiness and your ability to love. You would end up facing a new disappointment, and it would cause a lot of pain in both you and the new partner.

    So what is the right time to start a new relationship after a love disappointment?

    The answer may seem counter-intuitive: when you feel that you can do without it because now it feels good even alone.

    In the phase where you still suffer and miss your ex, it's wrong to jump into a new serious relationship, but it can be very helpful to start dating new people of the opposite sex without any particular expectations or promises.

    Dating other people will go a long way in helping you regain your self-esteem, find support elsewhere, and remove your ex-partner from the center of your life.
