How to Get Over Someone You Love

How do you get over someone you love? It’s common to think there’s a right or wrong way to move on from an ex, but there is no such thing.

Don’t be so hard on yourself.

Relax and ease up on yourself. Your body and mind will tell you when you’re ready to move on. There is no right or wrong way when learning how to stop thinking about someone. Give yourself the time and space you need to go through all of the emotions.

Give yourself guarded time. Guarded time means you will set-aside time with no distractions; this could be 15 minutes to an hour, do what works best for you. Set time aside, make an appointment with yourself, and feel your emotions. Wallowing in your emotions is a way to get the emotions up and out, that way you can deal with them and they can pass.

Dealing with your emotions will help you learn how to move on. There is a scientific study that shows there is an endorphin rush when you socialize. You may not be in the mood to socialize, but you have to treat yourself and get back on your feet, emotionally. If you’re more of an introvert, you can do this online through support groups, chat rooms, and online therapy.

How to get over him or her and move on.

Believe it or not, moving on is often signaled by meeting someone new. There’s a lot of pop psychology about the length of time you should take before you move on to somebody else but this does not exist.

Let’s talk about the word rebound. I dislike the term rebound in relationships. Finding somebody who is healthy is a treasure. If that happens to come one week or two months after a relationship, that’s okay. There is no specific amount of time you should wait. There is no point in questioning a healthy relationship because somehow it’s not the right time. Meeting someone new will assist with how to get over your ex.

I promise you there is no right time. If there is someone else who interests you, go ahead and get involved again. This is a good thing!
