Listening to music can ease the mind from troubling thoughts about the past.
Good break-up songs are:
Gotye- Somebody that I used to know
Christina Perri- Jar of hearts
Beyonce- Single ladies, Best Thing I Never Had
Kelly Clarkson- Since U Been Gone
Justin Timberlake- Cry Me a River
Maroon 5- Misery
Another tip is make a list of all the negative things about your relationship and then list the positives that counteract these. For example, negative= He was possessive. So, the positive to now being single, would be that you can see whoever you want, without having to explain to someone where you are or who you are with!
Get rid of everything you shared or anything that will remind you of him and have a party to celebrate your new found single life! This way you will forget about him by having fun with friends instead of dwelling on the past you are aiming to move forwards.
Finally, you must, must, must, avoid all contact from him so, delete him and block him from Facebook, unfollow him from Twitter and delete him from your mobile phone contacts. Remember, a clean break is quicker and easier to heal than a fracture!
I hope this has helped your heart heal <3
