Guide to Getting Dumped

Guide to Getting Dumped

Now we all know getting dumped is the worse feeling ever in life. It’s like humiliation and a heart attack wrapped into one. But in actuality getting dumped is a new start, a chance to start all the way over!

Is It REALLY Over?

Acceptance is key. You can’t stop the heartbreak and move on until you severe your ties with your ex. Don’t try and keep in touch under the cloak of  friendship. Maybe you can be friends later on but for the time being the pain is too raw and it’s to easy to wind up in a yo-yo relationship.  Give yourself a “lot” of space.
