A break in a relationship is always a painful event, the consequences of which many prefer to drown out with a new love union, but it also often turns out to be temporary. Psychologists recommend taking a love time out, and we found out why.
“No” to the past
It’s important to understand that having sex with your ex after your feelings have calmed down will not bring relief, and you simply will not be able to communicate like you did before by simply letting go of the emotional connection. If you come to a decision to end this relationship, refuse any contact with your ex, no matter how you justify this “friendly” sex. Find the strength to turn this page in your life and thereby restore vitality for the next novel.
Realize what you expect from dating
Even if enough time has passed and you feel ready for a new relationship, analyze what your mistake was the last time (or times) when you were mistaken in a person. Perhaps you subconsciously choose the wrong partners that you would like, or follow the opinions of friends and family, evaluating a potential partner for a long-term relationship through their eyes. While you are free, understand what you really need.
Learn to listen only to yourself
As we mature and gain experience, we often begin to adopt the views and behaviors of other people, which may not coincide with our own desires. It is especially unpleasant when public opinion influences the choice of a life partner. Remember that you will have to live with this person, not your friend, who at a common meeting pushes you under the table with her foot, expressing her dissatisfaction with your partner. Listen only to yourself.
Be open to new things
When a topic constantly occupies our thoughts , its implementation is delayed for a long time. Paradoxical, but true. Try to switch to something new, for example, finally sign up for courses that you didn’t have time for before, or find a new hobby. Our goal is to shift the focus of attention. However, always be ready for new meetings, do not give up acquaintances and you will see that “your” person will find you himself.
