How did leaving help or hurt you after the break up and looking back, would you have stayed, rather than just leave, and dealt with the pain?

I moved not to a whole new city but another district. I just couldn't stop thinking about her. My apartment still had so much things of hers, and I found myself so sentimental.
I remembered every single street we walked along around that area, and the footsteps we made today, and the conversations we had.
I also dropped all my friends since they became her friends as well. I let her have them, the whole lot, and started over with no friends. I also reinvented myself, changed my whole look, went traveling searching for a way to forget her, etc. In time it finally happened after over a year where I got so excited about doing things and had cut off all ties to her and all things reminding me of her that I could move on.
Note that this wasn't a usual kind of break-up. She was my fiance and broke up with me a week after I celebrated the fact that we were going to get married with my friends. I went from the highest point in my life to the lowest over the course of a week, and I became disconnected from the entire world around me.1

You should never run away from anything, it just means you gave someone that much power over you. You should stay in that state work on yourself and be happy. part of going through a break up accepting sometimes that person was not right for and figuring out who you, will you make the break up destroy or make you a better person.0
