Stages of Moving on After a Breakup
As much as we’d love just to snap our fingers and *poof* move forward, moving on after a breakup is a process. Taking it one step at a time will help you move forward with confidence. Here are the 5 stages of moving on (and up) after a breakup.
1. Reflect on the Relationship
Toss those rose-colored glasses in the trash and take a moment to reflect on your recent relationship. Whether you know the reason for the breakup or have some uncertainties around the decision to part ways, it's important to recognize that breakups can be difficult to accept. Take some time to consider the aspects of your relationship that made you unhappy. You may find that when you start looking at the flaws of what you had with another person, you begin to miss them less and actually feel happy to be on your own.

2. Express Your Feelings to a Trusted Person
Talking to a trusted person is a good way to think through everything aloud and learn through different perspectives. If this means grabbing a bottle of wine and ugly crying to your bestie, then so be it. She knows you would do the same thing for her. If you'd rather keep your feelings out of your inner circle, getting love advice from a live psychic may be the best move for finally letting go of all your baggage.
3. Cut Off Communication With Your Ex
Stalking your ex's social media accounts prevents you from moving on after a breakup. Take the plunge and hit that "unfollow" button before you even finish reading this paragraph. As the old saying goes, "Out of sight, out of mind."
Fighting the urge to text or call them is also sound advice. If they keep checking in with you, be firm and let them know you need to cut off communication in order to focus on yourself.
4. Invest Your Time and Energy Into What You Love
Many people in bad relationships fall into the trap of spending all their free time doing what their significant other wants to do. Now that you finally have time for yourself, start to rediscover what you enjoy doing. Finding a new hobby can take your mind off the heartbreak and help you crack a smile. Try doing yoga or meditation to center yourself. If yoga pants aren't your thing, find joy doing something creative.
