If you have been with someone for a long time and then you break up it can be very difficult and it may feel like you will never get over them. There are some things that you can do to get over your ex and move on with your life. These steps help by reminding you why things turned out the way they did and why you need to move on.
Firstly have a long hard look at the relationship and what it was really like. Were you often treated like second best in the relationship? Did his needs always take priority over yours? Is that really what you want back? I think if you are honest with yourself the answer would be 'no' and once you are honest with yourself the feelings you have for your ex will weaken. It doesn't have to be difficult to get over someone you love if you are determined to do it and move on with your life. Whenever you begin to feel feelings for your ex, try to redirect them toward other people in your life. Focus on the people in your life that are important and direct all your love toward them. Think about all the things in your life that are good and positive and focus all your thoughts and feelings toward them.
You also need to be positive and know that things will get better. It is a big change to move on from a relationship that has been a big part of your life but you will do it and you will survive and bet a better person for it. You've heard the saying 'if it doesn't kill you it makes you stronger' and it is true, this relationship will be part of your past and will be an experience that will shape you for the future. Use this relationship to learn from it and grow.
You might be angry at your ex but all that does is make you feel worse, it isn't bothering him at all that you are angry. Even if your ex did something to hurt you I'm sure he is going through bad feelings at this time as he also moves on from this relationship. If they don't seem to be suffering but they have moved on then see this as a sign that it is time for you to move on also.
The best thing that you can do to get over someone you love is to redirect your passion for him elsewhere. You can even go out and do something new, something that you've always wanted to do but just never got around to it. You could start taking yoga classes, try zumba, take a photography class or take up horse riding. There are so many things that you can do so you should find something that you would really like to do and just do it and put all your passion into it. By aiming your passion at something else you can help to lose the passion for your ex and really start enjoying your life.
Keep reminding yourself of the reason you broke up and the pain that it caused and remind yourself that you don't want to go back there. You need to move on from this painful break up and enjoy your life because you deserve so much more. You deserve to be happy and you deserve to have someone that will treat you like a princess. Your ex isn't that person so it's time to move on and find happiness within yourself so you can then meet your prince.
