Better Break Up: How to Make the Best Out of the Heartbreak

Know Your Ultimate Goals

When you begin considering a divorce, it may be hard to actually follow through. While you know this what you want, you may not know what you actually want. So you waiver, you try to make it work, you question whether you should stay.

But by recognizing your ultimate goals, you may be able to find some clarity. That means you need to ask yourself, what do i ultimately want out of this divorce? What do I ultimately want out of a marriage, a partner, and my life? If you can answer these questions, it may help you decide whether you can reach those goals in the relationship you are in.

Embrace the Discomfort

Even in the most unhealthy relationships, there tends to be a comfort in knowing you are not totally alone. So the idea of being single again can be uncomfortable for most people. However, you don’t want to let the fear of discomfort keep you in a relationship you don’t want to be in. So sometimes it can be healthy to step out of your comfort zone and embrace new changes. By doing this, you can have difficult conversations with your spouse and be honest about the issues you have. This can allow for a better break up and healing process for the both of you.

Take Responsibility But Don’t Blame Yourself

In most break ups, we do one of two things. We either blame ourselves for our failed marriage or we take none of the responsibility. But it’s important to own up to our mistakes and then recognize where other issues came into play. Taking too much or not enough responsibility for your divorce doesn’t make for a better break up. Instead, it often leads to guilt, anger, and bitterness.

Focus on the Future

One of the most important tips for a better break up is to stay focused on the future. At the time of your divorce, things may look bleak and a little scary. But it’s important to remember that they don’t have to stay that way. When you need a little reminder, refer back to your list of ultimate goals. By doing this, you can remind yourself of where you want to be instead of focusing on where you are.
