It safe to say you can add “Getting Over An Ex” onto the list of things you WILL have to go through in life at some point, along with paying taxes and dying. Everyone will go through it eventually whether you’re the one who initialized the break up or are the one being broken up with. Just because they call it a “break up”, doesn’t mean you should be broken. Sure it will be hard trying to adapt to life without a person who you probably thought highly of, but that does not mean it is impossible. The key to getting over an ex is understanding that you left the relationship with a lesson learned. Whether you wanted to or not, you learned something. You learned something about yourself, the love interest, relationships, and will learn about growth once you successfully get over the person. There is no fool proof way to getting over an ex, you cannot buy a magic pill to relieve the symptoms, and you certainly should not consider doing anything to harm yourself…no one wins. The old cliché statement “time heals all wounds” is probably the most popular statement used when dealing with breakups, and anyone who has ever been through a breakup can tell you it is true.
