Get Over Your Break-Up

Dating Coach Joann Cohen shares tips to help you get over your break-up.

How do we get over break-ups? First of all, one of the most important things that we can do as women is gather the troops, get all your female friends together.

Get together, eat some ice-cream, rant and rave, get them to support you. As women we are really fortunate we have female friends and get those women who are your best friends, who are going to have your back no matter what.

The second thing is you can write it all out – journal it. Write down all the things that you are really feeling that maybe you don’t even want to say, the things, the anger, the disappointment, the fear – write it all down. Get it out. Journaling can be very, very effective in getting over a breakup.

Three – give yourself permission to feel sad and to feel bad. So maybe it’s the weekend, maybe it’s two days, you are going to eat your Ben and Jerry’s ice-cream, eat the cookie dough and cry and moan and groan, and give yourself that amount of time but give yourself a time and then you are done.

The next thing I found really effective with clients is to look for a solution. What did you learn in the situation? What could you have done differently?

Also, simply write out all the things that you think you can do to get over the breakup. Sometimes simply getting into action, even thought action, about what you can do to get out of the bad situation you are in, will just make you start to feel better.

And finally is to remember when you go through a break-up, is that really wasn’t the right person for you and now you are freed up and you have space for the right person to enter your life and someone even better will now happen for you.
