How to Get Over Someone You Love and Move On With Your Life

Are you wondering how to get over someone you love?  Are you at the point where you're starting to believe that you will feel this heartache forever?  Well the heartache will probably not disappear overnight, but equally, it won't last forever.



Here are some tips to help you move on.

1.  Still in contact with your ex?  Then the truth is, to understand how to get over someone you love starts by you breaking all contact with them. There is no point in still talking to your ex on the phone or seeing them socially if you're trying to get over them and you're still in love with them. All you're doing is making the pain you're in last longer and go deep. So break contact.

2.  Get out and about and meet new people. The last thing that you want to do is to spend your days and nights sitting home alone, brooding and thinking about your ex. If you're out and about with friends then you can distract yourself and occupy your mind with other things. Yes you probably still have to go home alone, but it means you're not spending hours on your own when you're at your most vulnerable.

3.  Be good to yourself. No doubt mistakes were made by both you and your ex, so don't spend your time blaming yourself for what you did wrong. That's not to say you shouldn't accept responsibility for your own mistakes, but learn from what has happened and take what you have learnt into the future.

Understanding how to get over someone you love depends on you coming to terms with where your life now is.  If you're not happy with yourself, then you will have a hard time leaving your past relationship behind you.

Think about the direction you want your life to go in.  Are you headed the right way or are you stuck or moving in the exact opposite direction?

Do you need to make a different career choice to fulfill your goals?  Is there more studying to be done?  Perhaps you need a different group of friends to socialize with?  Maybe dropping some pounds and getting fit is what you need?  Whatever new path you need to take to move you forward in life, then you need to do it because a move like this is often the answer to the question “how to get over someone you love!”

What's also worth remembering and will help you, is to accept that just because you love someone, it doesn't necessarily mean you have to be with them.  If that person is not right for you then moving on, for yourself, is the best thing you can do.
