Healthy Ways to Get over a breakup

Hi, my ex-boyfriend just got married this weekend. I was not present at his wedding but am deeply struggling with the loss. Everyone keeps on telling me I did the right thing by ending the relationship (and it was the right thing to do) but I really made the decision by popular choice (not wanting it myself). I was deleting everything of his and removing him from my life completely. We had had a strong relationship of over four years and it had taken less than one misunderstanding for him to suddenly move to the person he is married to. I had imagined that he would have fought for our relationship but he didnt. Please help! I am trying my best to think positively of all of this but sometimes I do get troubled thoughts that I dont want to think of. The relationship I was in after this one also did not last long due to other complications. I am trying my best to do whatever I can to move on but its making it much harder. Please help and suggest me the best ways I can accelerate the healing process. The last time such a painful breakup had happened, I had done charity :) but it seems those opportunities are no longer available because I have a full time job now. Please suggest ways for me to stop thinking about our memories and help me get over the pain!

Hi anonymos1486,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Sorry you feel this way.  Whatever decisions you made back then, you should never regret.  It seems he didn't care about saving the relationship with you. He just accepted it and moved on. Try to move on by going out with friends, finding ways to keep your mind away from thinking about him and the marriage. If you can't do this on your own, seeing a pychotherapist and being able to explain how you feel will help. The right one will eventually come along.  Please visit the following link it might be helpful.


Best of luck,
