We’ve all been there, and for those who haven’t been, I want to prepare you for what you’re in-store for. Here are some steps to get passed that crushing feeling of heartache:
1) Get rid of the souvenirs: It is almost mandatory for you start throwing things away and start erasing memories – unless you believe the relationship will be restored, if there is a possibility of the relationship being rekindled, store away, give back or hid anything that pertains to the relationship to give yourself space until time permits, but never throw away anything. Memories affect a person most after heartache, the memories cause you to think about what could’ve been, what happened, what will not happen, and what you did or they did. It puts you in a stage where all you think about is the relationship and mainly in a regretful manner, this stage or phase is where it saddens many or sometimes leads to depression. Thinking about the relationship over and over again is what you need to stay away from and you can only do that by getting rid of the things that brings back old memories. Old memories will come, but having those souvenirs brings back more memories, more often.
