He/she has been an integral part of your life until now, but with a breakup, dimension changes. So, it’s important to delete the memories associated with him /her.

Thus, remove the person’s contact detail, photos, and block him/her in the social media platform. Moreover, it is wise to eliminate the chat conversation as after the break-up, the chat message is another aspect which keeps the memories of the ex-alive, and one read it again and again.

When a person who means a life to you suddenly disappears from your life, then it’s natural to feel sad. But the prolonged sadness is harmful to your mental health and could even lead to depression.

Firstly, try to mend your broken heart yourself, but if you are not able to heal yourself, then it’s better to seek professional help. Do not hesitate to go to professional, as the mental fitness is as important as the physical health.

Life is a journey in itself and relationship is a part of your life, not your life. So a failed relationship should not matter more than your life. Also, the failed relationships of the past do not determine the future of your strong relationships. So, keep your spirit high, as love knocks your door most unexpectedly!
