Ignore your ex’s life. Don’t show your ex that you are interested in him at all. When he posts updates about life events, like a promotion or a trip, don’t engage. Don’t like the post, don’t comment, and don’t mention it to your friends. Make it so your ex thinks you are totally off his radar.[20]

I am going through a hard time with a very you g boyfriend. 9 years younger. And i have been crying and texting him and the last i did was called him. He said he was busy playing game and hung up on me when i ask if he still wants us.

Every once in a while a song will come on the radio that inspires me. It really gets me motivated. It gives me this amazing feeling in my chest and for a short period of time I feel like I have some incredible out of body experience where everything is effortless.

Hi, my ex broke up with me a while ago. We went full no contact for about 8 weeks and then he finally texted me to catch up. We talked for about a month, hooked up a couple times, and he was treating/talking to me as if we were a couple. I want to get back together. So I’ve told him I still have feelings for him and eventually want to get back together. I know he still has feelings for me but he says he doesn’t know what he wants (We’re also doing long distance so this is a big reason of why he doesn’t know). I told him a week ago I can’t be just friends anymore so I went into no contact again. Was this the right move? I want him to realize he does want to get back together and be more that friends. Should I have just stayed friends and waited? Or was it smart to go no contact again!!

Self-esteem is about believing that you are a person of worth and that you are adequate the way you are. When it comes to relationships, it is important that you feel complete and whole as an individual rather than looking for someone else to complete you or make your life worthwhile.[9]

Avoid contact for the first month after the break-up. They will call you if they want to talk. If they don’t, nothing you say or wear will change that. Sometimes, ignoring your ex makes them feel like you are perfectly fine without them and are moving on, which is the exact opposite of what they want.

After i came back to my home country, we kept in contact and both agreed to face reality but we still always said we loved each other, we still talked about marriage and sometimes agreed that it was the right person but wrong timing. I would still hope to get a job in his country but only time will tell how long that would take.

One inspiring, helpful , insightful and motivating email everyday. I have helped thousands of people (somewhere around 50,000) with these emails. The reason why these everyday emails are so effective is because you get a small dose of inspiration, motivation and useful information every day.The no contact period is the most important part of the plan and with Part 5, you will get support during the no contact period.

Then you are still suffering from post-breakup denial and bargaining. Denial and bargaining are two of the many stages of grief after a breakup. It’s extremely common for people to want to get their ex back after a breakup. However, it’s not always the right choice.

When my ex husband dumped me, and after the fog had cleared, I picked myself up and looked for the fast track to heal. I went to therapy, read self-help books, joined support groups, all the things I was supposed to do during a divorce. When people said, “The only thing that will heal you is time” I wanted to get all Chuck Norris on them and punch them in the face. I couldn’t control time, so I wanted that theory to die. I rushed through the healing process like a banshee and celebrated each month that went by, because to me it signified that I was that much better. Then one night I had a dream about him, that we were still married and actually happy. Talk about a tailspin. I was FURIOUS that I had been set back, I couldn’t stop thinking about him, I cried and frantically called my therapist. “WHAT THE HELL IS THIS” I asked her. And she so calmly told me, “Remember when I told you the grief process is a process? You go through it over and over again, possibly for years and years to come”. Well, that was NOT what I wanted to hear. However…I listened and I surrendered to the feelings. Not right then and there, but over time. Reality was, I had lost a big part of my life. It was the death of a marriage. I am not superhuman, I cannot control my grief. Once I let that go, it got easier.

“Getting over an ex is never easy. But the way I did it was with my girlfriends. They help me through everything. We stayed busy hanging out. And basically they were there for me when I had nobody else. I still think about my ex, but I know that he’s just not worth it.” –Stacie, 16

Proof It Works: “The more you just sit around at home, the more you run things through your head, which results in your idolizing this person you’re hoping to forget,” says Adam Durham, 23, a civil engineer from Durham, CT. “The one thing that always clears my mind is getting back to nature. It gives me a whole different—better—perspective on life.”
