I do not know any other way to say it, but breaking up really sucks. You can avoid it sometimes especially if you are the one that has been dumped. There is really no way of making the hurt go away and I hate to tell you this, but it will take some time before you will feel normal again. You will get over it, but if you want your ex back that is a different subject. That pain will not go away so the solution to that problem is to get a plan going and get your ex back.
However, before you do that there are some things that you need to do before you get all excited about getting your ex back. You just cannot pick up the phone or go over to their house and beg for forgiveness. It may seem like a good idea, but doing something like that will not get you anywhere. Instead, you should give your ex some breathing room as well as to yourself. You probably do not think that you need space, that you need to be with them, but you will be glad that you did when your ex is back in your arms. This article will show the three things that you need to do before you get your ex back.
Analyze the importance of your relationship: Lots of friends and your family will tell you to build a bridge and get over it or to stay strong and hide your tears, but if your relationship means anything; you will be experiencing emotions like anger, guilt, loneliness, shame, and hurt. You should let yourself feel those things for a while. Yes, pick yourself up and be strong and positive that everything will work out, but if you have to go to your bed at night and cry; do it.
Figure out why the break happened: Take a good look in the mirror. Search yourself and your relationship and find the root cause of the problem that caused your relationship to come to end. It may be hard to point the finger at yourself because often we point a finger at the other person. However, if you want to get back with your ex, then you have to find out what you did wrong. Be honest with yourself and if you find, which I am sure you will, work out a plan to change your behavior. Make sure that you apologize, but do it with respect and dignity.
Solve the issue: Once you have made the necessary changes go to your ex, if they agree, have a conversation with them, and then if they agree to work things out, find a workable solution that works for the both of you.
