We all know that breakups suck and your life may completely change. You may need to change a whole group of friends. And yes, it hurts, a lot. How have you handled breakups before? How about overhauling your look with a breakup haircut? It may seem like a good plan, but unfortunately, it won’t help in the long-run.

Okay, so, let’s say that you are at the end of a relationship. How to handle it as a ‘pro’? What do scientists say about the best way to get over a bad breakup? There are three phases you need to go through.

 

  1. The worst parts about your ex. Okay, we understand, at this point, while everything is still fresh, you hate your ex, right? That is a good emotion. Anger is healthy. Let it out. It doesn’t matter if you will cry or scream, just let it out. Anger is actually a form of sadness and helps you heal. So what should you do? Take a look at the photos of your ex. Remember everything bad you’ve experienced with her or him. How many times has he or she made you cry? How many problems did you have because of your ex? What about the annoying habits your ex gf or a bf had? Be angry!
  2. Being honest. Once you have gone through the first stage of the breakup, now is the time to calm down and to be honest about the feelings you have about him or her. Do you still feel something for them? Be honest with yourself, but don’t dwell on that special love that won’t happen again. If you get stuck on this one, go back to the first stage.
  3. Create new habits. Now, if you have passed the first two stages, you are ready to get that haircut we have talked about at the beginning of this article. Don’t feel back about removing yourself from anything that may remind you of him or her. If you don’t want to hang around with your mutual friend, remember that you don’t have to. If you don’t want to go to the same gym, you don’t have to. And remember, there are more than 7 billions of people around the globe. We are sure how you will soon find a love of your life! Don’t rush, give yourself some time!
