Breaking up isn’t easy for anyone. If you have just been dumped—or if it was your idea to do the dumping—what you really need is a plan to move on. The first step is to accept the fact that the relationship is done. Even if you were the one who broke things off, it doesn’t make things any easier.
The biggest problem with breaking up is that you will still feel the need to get in contact with your ex. You might think of yourself as friends one day, this isn’t the time to be “just friends”. One thing to do is write down (yes, really write this down!) why you broke up. What were the things with which you were unhappy? When you get the urge to contact the ex, read that list.
As in any breakup, you’ll probably feel the need to talk about everything concerning that person and people will tend to listen and support you. (But as time goes by even your closest friends will likely find it annoying when you keep on talking about your ex.) Talk about it… and once you are done, stop.
Next, reconstruct your life first before you jump into another relationship. Go on a vacation or reconnect with an old friend (not an ex, however).
If you need to turn down the hurt feelings, contact me and we’ll talk about how hypnosis can help you reduce the pain of breaking up. Hypnosis can’t get you to forget memories (it doesn’t work like that), but it can “turn down the volume” of the pain.
