But here are other ways you can overcome the hardest part:

1. Don’t try to remain friends with them

If the two of you were really in love with each other, then staying friends won’t work. And there’s no point in pretending, right?

2. Don’t do anything

Don’t call. Don’t text. Don’t drunk call or text. Do not initiate contact. This will only make it harder for you. Don’t send them gifts and don’t make up excuses to get in touch with them again. Don’t. And don’t ask to meet.

3. Find support in your friends

Being around your closest friends will be crucial during this time. You’ll have such a wonderful time with them that you’ll hurt a bit less. Be grateful that you have them around.

4. Do something creative

I personally drowned my sorrow in painting and music. And it’s working wonderfully! Sing, write or dance all of your negative emotions out. You’ll feel so relieved afterwards. Be vulnerable and pour your heart into your art.
