Never Do These Things After Breaking Up With Someone
Going through a breakup can be an upsetting and painful experience for both parties. Even if it ended amicably, no longer having someone there can leave you feeling vulnerable, angry and heartbroken.
With so many emotions to contend with, it can be easy to act impulsively. Unfortunately, this can prolong your heartbreak and makes it more difficult to move on.
These impulsive mistakes can also make it less likely for you and your ex to potentially be friends in the future.
So to help you stop this from happening, here are three things you should avoid doing at all costs.
Start looking for revenge
When a breakup is caused by unfaithfulness, it can be easy to want to seek revenge. You might want to burn your ex’s belongings or post inappropriate photos of them online.
Some people also seek revenge by vandalizing their ex’s car or property. However, this thrill will be short lived and only make you more bitter as a result.
This will make it much harder to start moving forward with your life. So even though you may have been wronged and treated badly by your ex, revenge is not the answer.
Instead, you need to accept what has happened and learn from it. That way, you will be able to hold your head high, avoid embarrassment and come out on top.
Try to be friends too soon
If you think you’ve made a terrible mistake and want to get back with your ex, you might think being friends is the best place to start.
But in fact, this can have an opposite effect. Your ex will understandably be in a vulnerable position, just like you. They need time to process what has happened and whether it’s worth giving your relationship another try.
If you rush in and try to be friends too soon, this can cause additional confusion and upset. So give her space to reflect and don’t have any communication for at least a few weeks.

Stalk your ex’s social media
As wonderful as social media can be, stalking your ex’s profile on Facebook or Twitter is a bad idea. It can be tempting to want to know what they are up to now they are no longer with you.
But this can quickly become obsessive and turn into an unhealthy habit. If you see posts of her with new friends or a new boyfriend, this will also prolong your recovery.
So if you need to, unfriend your ex or at least hide their posts so you can’t see them. That way you can avoid all temptation to keep tabs on what they are doing.
As hard as it might be, not doing these things will help you to quickly recover from your breakup. They can also improve your chances of reconciliation if you think you might have made a mistake.
So follow this advice and consider whether moving on or trying to make things work is the best option for you.
