Break-ups not only happen to the best of us, but they’re nothing if not complicated. Sometimes they’re unwanted, while other times they’re almost a relief. All of them can leave a person feeling like they’re not quite themselves for a while. Taking some time to yourself to get your bearings and regroup can be therapeutic for a while, but sooner or later, you’re going to be itching to get back to normal. Here are a few tips for coming back strong and getting your life back on track once you’re ready.

It also stops them from secretly checking up on you. While you’re at it, consider deleting their number from your phone as well.
