Okay, so this isn't a question as such. I just wanted to start a thread of tips and facts that have helped people get over a break up & hoping others will share theirs. I'll start:

Did you know, statistically on average half a million people all over the world will be going through a break up on any given day? This means no matter how alone you feel there are hundreds of thousands of people going through the same thing, the exact time you are.

Also, the love you felt whilst you were with someone, came from you, no one physically gave that to you. It's yours, free to give and feel again & again.

I love the tip about your love coming from you and that it's yours to give again smile I will remember that.

I do the usual exercising and throwing myself into things I enjoy. I also buy some new underwear then I know I am wearing knickers he's never seen grin.

What helps most though is experience - I've been through this before and I know I'll be ok. I know the day will come when they are not the first thing I think of. I know the time will come where a whole day passes without thinking of them. I know I will feel that way about someone again.

The thing that got me through is yes, been there before so it's never as bad. But I also remember that whatever they did was about them and no reflection on me.

Dont fight the feelings. Wallow. Cry. Mourn. But set a deadline for when that will stop and make a conscious effort to get a handle on it when the deadline is up. No slagging off your ex, no analysing, just acceptance and learning.
