Cupid’s Advice:

Break-ups are almost always rough. While it may seem challenging to heal, it’s important to maintain a strong sense of self. Cupid has some tips that you can implement into your life to help keep your past from dictating the future:

1. Respect the past: Your past relationship ended for a reason. You don’t have to forget the good times you had. Respect the relationship for all that it was, because it probably was right for you at that point in your life.

2. Be present: If you spend your time dwelling on what used to be, it’ll be super challenging to find happiness in another relationship. Yes, you should respect the past for what it was, just know you are a different person in the present. Learn from your past self and relationship, and fully embrace yourself for who you are presently.
