Life is full of ups and downs; nothing is ever smooth sailing. One of the downs we’ll all experience is a breakup. Unless you’re lucky, you’re probably going to go through at least a couple of breakups in your life, and they don’t get any easier.
I’ve got three tips that can help you deal with a breakup:

Try And Talk Things Through
If your breakup happened out of the blue, it could be very hard for you to handle. You don’t know what went wrong or if you did anything to contribute to it. Sometimes anger arises after an unexpected breakup. So much that revenge seems to be an only option. I’m not here to tell you how to make your ex jealous, I’m here to suggest you talk to them. Text them, call them, ask to meet up again. Go for coffee and try to talk things through.
If you get the chance to hash things out and have a long talk, it can make you feel a lot better. You will have a proper understanding of the breakup and it will be easier for you to move on. There’s nothing worse than the feeling of not getting closure. Not knowing why you broke up is horrible and can make you feel so much worse. By talking things through, you get that closure. You can start to put this relationship behind you and look to the future.
Think Of The Bigger Picture
A lot of the times, a breakup can seem like the end of the world. Teenagers can be guilty of maybe overreacting when they go through a breakup. Many teenagers thinks they’re in love and that they’ve found the one. I don’t want to suggest that teenagers aren’t actually upset when their relationships end; I know they are. But, there are so many emotions and hormones at that age that it seems like a bigger deal than it actually is. When you take a step back and think of the bigger picture, things seem a lot better.
Remember, you’re not the only person to suffer a breakup, and you won’t be the last. People all over the world are getting their hearts broken, but they always bounce back. It may seem like your world is crumbling down, but keep your head up and your eyes to the sky. Think about all the people in the world that have horrible things happening to them, and yet they make it through every day. You’ll realize how privileged you are and that, in the grand scheme of things, a breakup isn’t a huge deal. Don’t let it get you down. Instead, think positively and remember it’s only a minor smudge of ink on the pages of the book of life.
Don’t Bottle Your Emotions
I’ll keep this last tip short and sweet. When you go through a breakup, you will probably be very emotional. The immediate aftermath of a breakup is usually filled with tears and crying. What’s my advice? Let it all out. Just let the tears flow and cry til you can’t cry no more. Don’t keep your emotions bottled up, give into them, let them out. Keeping them bottled up will only make you feel worse.
