Cupid’s Advice:

When a relationship ends there are going to be hurt feelings, but if you deal with them properly, you’ll have a better chance of coming to terms with your break-up.  Read how Cupid deals with negative emotions:

1. Express yourself: When you find yourself in the middle of a nasty break-up with, it’s healthy to get those feelings out.  Try to turn your feelings into positive energy – and don’t direct the negativity to your ex.  It won’t solve anything.

2. Talk to someone unbiased: When you’re going through an emotional upheaval, logic tends to be forgotten.  Go to a trusted family member or friend to confide in, and listen to their suggestions.  They’ll tend to be more objective since they aren’t directly involved in the situation.

3. Be understanding: You are not the only person feeling hurt.  Consider your former partner’s feelings before reacting.
