Not all relationships thrive as we would wish to. There are many questions behind that; maybe the relationship is at a standstill, or there’s a third person involved, or the love simply ends.
In many cases, it’s very difficult to overcome this situation and it takes a lot of time to forget your ex-partner. The reason is because you have shared great and unforgettable moments and you have invested your time, future and love to make it work. Sometimes forgetting represents a chasm and emptiness that we do not want to face.
There are relationships that can’t work at all and sometimes as we get very comfortable; we do not remedy it or we are content with a little comfort without questioning the perception of reality.
The path by overcoming the split up is: negation, being afraid, pain and sadness as a first step; acceptance and recognition as a second step and the final step is the reconstruction of your life.
The loss of a loved one involves grieving; a similar situation when someone close to you dies. The best solution is to have a close friend, family or professional to tell them how you feel in each moment.
Can your ex-partner become your friend? Of course, but it takes time. When you split up, the first thing you have to do is to break with the other person; you can’t behave as if nothing happened. To break up is get used to being alone and to enjoy your individuality again.
