Cupid’s Advice:

It can be hard to move beyond the negative emotions of a divorce or break-up.  Cupid has some tips:

1. Make it a clean break: It can be difficult not to contact your ex after having them in your life for so long.  However, the only way to truly move on and find happiness in other things is to cut off contact for a while.

2. Refocus your energy: Put the time and energy that would’ve gone towards the relationship into something positive in your life.  For Katy Perry, she’s focuses on her fans and her music to get over the ending of her marriage.

3. Acceptance: Accept that he or she wasn’t the one.  Perhaps your ex was only meant to be around for a season or two.  Understand that this experience will help you grow and that you will find someone new.
