Cupid’s Advice:

Breakups are always challenging, and even more so when the relationship is long in tenure. If you’re having a difficult time adjusting to your newfound single life, check out these tips from Cupid to help ease the pain:

1. Delete, delete, delete: In this digital age, we are connected to everyone digitally. Do yourself a favor and unfollow, delete, and/or even block your ex on all social media platforms. When you’re trying to get over them, seeing their face plastered everywhere you turn. It really will help the healing process!

2. Give yourself credit: Some days will be easier than others. Instead of looking at the negatives, try flipping your perspective. You only cried five times today? Cool, yesterday it was seven so that’s an improvement! You’re allowed to mourn and allowed to be sad. Let yourself feel the pain for some time.

3. Do things you love: Reclaim your independence and do things on your own. This is super important because it helps to dissociate the past from the present. Just because you and your ex went on lots of trips together doesn’t mean you have to be a hermit for all eternity! It’s totally unfair and is only a disservice to you. You deserve happiness as a single person, too!
