Break-ups can be hard. And if they come out of the blue or in unsavoury circumstances, they can be even more difficult to get through. But once we've waited out the low moments and come to see the light at the end of the tunnel, we often realise how resilient we are and it gives us confidence that we can survive pretty much anything life throws at us. But how can you make it through a break-up with confidence and emotions still intact? Try these simple steps to boost your self-esteem and put a smile on your face.
This will help you to face your demons and deal with your feelings properly, instead of just distracting yourself with people and social events.
They say that time heals all. And although you may think there's no chance you'll ever get over him, we assure you, you will. It's all just a matter of time.
Your friends and family will be there for you and will show you how much you are loved. Spend some quiet time just hanging out and chatting with them. Reconnect with old friends if you've lost touch while being in a relationship.
Exploring your interests and discovering new talents can help rebuild your self-esteem if it's been damaged in a break-up. Think about what makes you happy, and take it one step further by joining a club or a team, or endeavouring to do it on a regular basis. Love running? Join a weekly running club.
