    Why Are Breakups So Difficult?
    Simply put, "the more important a relationship is to us, the more painful the breakup is
    likely to be,".
    The more time and emotion you invest in a partner, the more challenging it can be to
    move on, and learn to be single again.
    Additionally, it tends to be more difficult when the breakup was not entirely your own
    decision.
    "It is much more painful to be the breakup recipient, than the breakup initiator," However,
    no matter the cause, all breakups can be challenging.
    It's important to remember that your feelings are valid, but you'll get through this.
    What's the Difference Between Sadness and Depression?
    "It's important to distinguish grief and depression,".
    While both emotions cause things like sadness, insomnia, and loss of appetite, a person who
    is experiencing grief, will feel these symptoms alleviate over time.
    Depression is more complicated.
    "The feelings are constant and overwhelming,".
    Additionally, there are often feelings of guilt and shame attached to depression, and
    may be about more than just the relationship loss.
    1 Give yourself time to grieve.
    Allow yourself to be sad about the loss of your relationship, rather than trying to rush
    into feeling well again.
    People who refuse to face the pain of a break-up, get involved in rebound relationships, before
    working through the painful issues of the past relationship.
    They tend to project their pain and desires onto their new partner, substituting their
    previous partner, and not seeing the new person for who he or she really is.
    Give yourself time to grieve, the process may be as painful as mourning the death of
    a loved one.
    Breaking up is a loss, and the only way to come out of it healthy and with peace, is
    to grieve properly.
    2 Don't Seek Revenge.
    That's probably the hardest one to achieve.
    When you break up with someone, you often harbor feelings of anger.
    Perhaps you were deeply hurt, and you want to hurt them as bad as they've hurt you.
    Maybe you want to project your pain, or perhaps you simply want to be understood.
    But being vengeful will only make you appear sour and petty.
    In other words, avoid saying bad things about them to your mutual friends, or trash talking
    them on social media.
    Instead, look at it from a more philosophical point of view.
    Understand that there's a reason why this person is not in your life anymore, and make
    your peace with it.
    Once you stop wanting to punch them in the face every time you see them, you know you're
    over it.
    3 Find time to exercise.
    Studies have shown that getting at least 30 minutes of exercise, at least three times
    a week, can lift your mood as much as taking certain antidepressants.
    Exercise raises the levels of serotonin, the brain chemical that boosts feelings of well-being.
    physical exercise Not only is it going to boost your self confidence, because you'll
    start seeing positive changes; it's going to boost your energy and your mood, because
    you'll be releasing endorphins and serotonin.
    If you're not really into going to the gym, begin exploring different types of avenues.
    For example, why not try out yoga, rock climbing, or surfing.
    Dance is also a fantastic option.
    Sometimes it's just a question of finding something that's really fun, and then it
    doesn't even feel like physical exercise.
    Whatever type of physical activities you choose, the moment you start to take care of your
    body, you'll start to step out of this depression.
    4 Remind yourself that you still have a future.
    When you commit to another person, you create many hopes and dreams for a life together.
    After a breakup, it's hard to let these aspirations go.
    As you grieve the loss of the future you once envisioned, be encouraged by the fact that
    new hopes and dreams, will eventually replace your old ones.
    5 Don't Listen to Sad Music.
    Music is a means of escape of many people.
    But, are you spending your time looking for "sad breakup songs", or listening to "We
    Were in Love", or "All By Myself" on repeat?
    That's not going to help.
    Those songs were written to make you feel sad.
    If you already feel sad, it's only going to make your sadness worse.
    Instead, listen to some proper party hits. and dance your life away.
    Listen to something that's not about love or heartbreak, and you'll be surprised at
    the positive change in your mood.
    6 Getting support after a breakup.
    Getting through a breakup, is easier when you receive support from family and friends.
    You don't have to go through this alone, so surround yourself with positive people
    who encourage you.
    If you're feeling lonely or scared, call a loved one and make social plans.
    Avoid negative people who may judge or criticize you.
    This can worsen depression, and make it harder for you to heal after a breakup.
    You can also fight loneliness and depression after a breakup, by cultivating new friendships
    and reconnecting with old friends.
    Get together with a few co-workers for lunch or dinner, or get involved in your community
    to meet new people.
    Join a club, take a class, or volunteer in your spare time.
    Even if your depression isn't severe enough for psychotherapy, it may be helpful to join
    a support group.
    Look for breakup and divorce support groups near your home, or choose a support group
    for mental illness and depression.
    You'll meet people who've gone through the same experience, plus learn techniques
    to cope with your emotions
