The emotions that make it difficult
What to do next
Grieve the relationship and allow yourself to move forward. It's okay to acknowledge that you miss them. Allow yourself to let go, give away or return the items gained from the relationship. If giving the items back is unsafe or the other person has stated they don't want it, respect that wish, and don't.
Appreciate the time you spent with that person and the fun you had. Remember, the entire relationship was not bad. You made a choice to connect, love, and spend time with the individual. This made the relationship have merit. There was love, fun, joy, and good in it. Without those elements saying goodbye would be easier.
Talk to someone you trust about how you feel. This will help you to safely share and allow you to release the emotions. Talking with someone who is wise helps us to get a balanced perspective of the situation. Allow yourself to express the hurt and sadness in a safe way. Be honest about your part in the break-up.
Learn from the relationship mistakes. Learning from our errors helps us to feel empowered. Not creating the same type of relationship environment allows us to grow. Being in relationships allows us to see ourselves the way other people see us. Use that information to make changes and become better at relating to others. Grow in compassion, understanding, and communication.
Choose to be better in the next relationship. We have to make a choice to improve and change. You can stay the same and repeat the mistakes of the past relationship or you can choose to get better. You can choose to change using the information you have learned about yourself. If you keep blaming the other person and refuse to see what you contributed, then change will be limited, and growth will be difficult.
