Your relationship is over, you’ve eaten all the cookie dough and ice cream in the house. Now you’re contemplating going to the 7-Eleven for more. Everywhere you look in your home you see his stuff or things that remind you of him. The memories of the relationship immediately rush back to you and you’re left feeling lonely, angry, hurt and lost. It’s time to take some control over the situation.
Delete his e-mails. Remove his phone number, voicemails, texts and pictures from your phone. Unfriend him at Facebook. If he’s left anything at your house, get rid of it. You can return it to him if you want, and you don’t have to see him. After all, that’s what the postal service, FedEx and UPS are there for! Send it to him. Otherwise, throw it out. You don’t need it. As Lucy said – he deleted you from his life, give yourself permission to do the same.
It might be hard to find the energy, but it’s worth it. Go for a walk for a few minutes every day. Take yourself to someplace enchanting, like a garden, and stroll through it. Go to a new gym or yoga studio and try a new class.
3. Be Social
Start accepting invitations to go out. Take yourself out to a dinner and a movie. Invite others to go with you. You’ll feel better and more energized.
