Grieve for the death of the relationship, I do that by calling my friends, crying, ranting to them, I get it all out, and then I listen to break-up songs that are sort of the I will get over you songs. And I cry while listening to them, because even though I know logically I will eventually get over him, it still hurts right now, right now I still miss him. When I'm out of tears, I indulge in my favorite ice cream / sorbet, it cheers me up a bit. Then I hug my teddy bear for comfort and get some sleep. Sleep is important, it really does help you cope, for me, after a really good night's rest, I felt so much better. My heart didn't feel like it was aching all the time, I still missed him but he was no longer on my mind ALL the time. And I could finally listen to a breakup song without crying, and I knew, slowly I was getting over it. At that point, I just started doing thing to make myself feel happy, talking walks in the park, having fun with friends, more sorbet. And slowly, one day, you'll wake up and realize, your heart has mended and you're ready to try again, I'm not there yet, but one day.
