Someone recently asked me: 

How do you get over a break up? 

Following is the answer that may help you too: 

When a relationship ends, we experience all kinds of feelings of loss. 
Maybe we lost our best friend and lover, someone we truly love, 
someone we had future plans and dreams with. It takes time to heal 
from a break-up. It’s a process of letting to. Letting go is sometimes 
difficult. But regardless of why the relationship ended, there are 
some things we can do to help us move forward. We can ask ourselves: 

What am I holding on to? If it’s anger, we can work on forgiveness. If we’re holding on to disappointed hopes, we can set new goals for ourselves. 

What is worth holding on to? Anything that we have learned that can help us to grow and be better is worth holding on to. We also have memories we can cherish of the love shared and good times together. 

Finally, when we truly want nothing but the best for the other person, we are free to find the best in ourselves. 
Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. 
You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.

There are things that we never want to let go of, people we never want to leave behind. But keep in mind that letting go is not the end of the world, it’s the beginning of a new life.
