Step 1: Cut him off. Completely eliminate his existence from your world. Do not follow him on social media, do not keep his number around, block his number, and do not give him the privilege of having unlimited access into your life, your thoughts, and your heart. This creates a solid foundation for your healing. Don't do this and it creates a shaky, easily destroyed foundation for your healing.
Step 2: Acknowledge just how damaging and destructive the act of leaving is. He left you. He left you. He walked away from you and your relationship. Not only did he turn his back on you, but he STABBED you in the back by leaving you for someone else. His loyalty had an expiration date. Now, is that really the kind of man you want to be getting attached to? Is that really the type of person you should be longing for? HELL NO !
Step 3: Give yourself the time and space to process this heartbreak. Let yourself go through the motions of heartache. Cry, scream, binge on junk food, work out/release those endorphins, gain strength. Allow yourself to mourn the loss of an idea, let the process dismantle you, then put yourself back together and be even more excellent and stronger than you were before.
Lastly, never desire a man who does not strive or moral excellence. He's now in your past, leave him there. You deserve better.
