Your Guide to Moving On in Style
A break up can knock your confidence in a really big way. It seems like you’ll never feel like yourself again, but with our help, you will!
Nothing is worse than those post-break up blues. You’ll be going through all kinds of emotions, from feeling frighteningly insecure to unpredictably angry. It’s totally normal to feel like this – but that doesn’t make it enjoyable! Well, it’s time to wipe away those tears. We’re here to help you recover all of that lost confidence, and then some! A break up may feel like the end of the world but it’s not all doom and gloom. Sometimes a drastic change in your love life is a chance to start all over again, a time when you can re-invent yourself and have a lot of fun in the process. So put down the ice-cream tub and turn off the weepy film, we’ve got work to do!
The first thing to do following a break up is to try and feel good in yourself again. Many people think that their partner ending their relationship had something to do with their looks, so it’s easy to feel pretty down about yourself. Well, it doesn’t matter if you are going for a complete image overhaul or just treating yourself to a manicure – treating yourself like the goddess you are will send your confidence levels through the roof. What about a new haircut or colour? Or perhaps a new wardrobe? Whatever helps you to start feeling fab again, do it!
Get out there and have some fun!
Getting out there and meeting new people is a great way to regain some of that lost sparkle. There’s opportunities everywhere, from taking up a new hobby or going to a different bar on a night out. Attracting the attention of some new people and getting talking to someone different can reassure you that you’ve still got what it takes to get some heads turning. Getting chatting to someone is a great way to brush up on those flirting skills too, and you might even have some cheeky, no-strings fun with someone! As long as you’re doing it in a safe way, having a bit of a re-bound fling is no bad thing at all, as it will do wonders for your confidence and maybe lead to you meeting someone you want to be with.
Put yourself first for once
While you’re doing all of this, it’s important to reconnect with yourself too. Having some time alone to do the things that you want to do can be really liberating. If you’re worried that being alone will have a negative impact on your sex life, then think again! There’s plenty of toys, films, books and whatever else you fancy to keep you going. So focusing on your work, social life and quality time with friends and family doesn’t mean that your libido has to suffer. By having fun both with yourself and others, you’ll realise that your break up wasn’t the worst thing to happen to you after all. What’s that? Your ex? Well, by getting up, out and on with your life, you’ll be showing them exactly what they are missing – and nothing feels quite as good as that! So stop feeling sorry for yourself and get out there, a whole new chapter of your life is waiting for you.
