Tips To Help You Move On From An Unhealthy Relationship
Toxic relationships can do more emotional damage than you even realize. Here are some tips to help you move on from an unhealthy relationship.
Take your time to grieve. So for example, if your ex blamed you for the break-up, it’s normal to feel angry, resentful and agitated after. It’s ok to feel the way you do and when you’re ready, it’s also ok to move on from those feelings especially since they don’t serve a purpose in your life. It may take 6 months… Maybe more. That’s ok. There’s no rush.
Let go of stifling mindsets. If you were told by your ex that you were wrong for wanting certain things in a relationship, it’s time to let that idea go. It’s ok for you to get everything you want and need in a relationship. It’s important that you no longer take everything that your ex has said as facts… but instead as opinions. Opinions that you can either take or pass on.
Don’t bother reliving the beginning of the relationship when everything was really good. People that do this do it because they’re not able to accept how things turned out. It’s important to see things for what they are and not for what they were.
Cut ties. If it’s over, it’s over. Many times people who have been in unhealthy relationships can find themselves pining after their toxic ex, trying to win over their affection and love. They may do this even though they know it wasn’t working and they know that it wasn’t a healthy relationship. Doing this is not only demoralizing but it creates a vicious cycle that you need to free yourself from. This leads to my next point:
For now, Forget the idea of staying friends. Attempting to stay friends after an unhealthy relationship will only keep you reliving the same scenarios. If a respectful friendship develops in the future, great but for now, keep your distance.
Seek counseling so that you can process everything that was said and done. When we are in an unhealthy relationship we can be blind to all kinds of factors. A good therapist will be able to open your eyes to what you haven’t been able to see for yourself.
