Learning How to Let Go of Someone You Love

Learning How to Let Go of Someone You Love

If you have been with someone for a long time or even for a short time, breaking up can be hard. Letting go of someone can leave you feeling devastated and sad.

Love is an amazing thing, but it can also be messy and when you find that you are with someone that you aren’t meant to be with, this has to end, and it can cause pain and heartache. It is hard for people to separate and to go their own way.

When you have love that you feel will no longer benefit you, you need to let them go and here are some ways to do that.

Don’t Make a Time

Do not pressure yourself wondering if you are going to get over someone fast. When you break up with someone, it can be very hard on you.

Do not wonder how long you will be sad and give yourself as much time as you need to get over them. You need to make sure that you are allowing your feelings to come to you because if you hide them then you will never heal.

Do not allow yourself to suffer because you are not letting your feelings out. Eventually you will feel better, and you will move on into the dating scene. Allow yourself to grieve and focus on what you need at the time.

Know Why It Ended

Look at why your relationship ended and realize that you wouldn’t want to spend the rest of your life with that person. When you end a relationship, you have good reasons for it.

Pay attention to where you want your life to go from here and what you want in your future. Know that good things are coming.

Be Kind

Love yourself and learn to care for who you are. Take a mini vacation or do what you can to have fun. Buy you a new car or get a new hairdo. Do whatever it takes to bring happiness in your life.

Be gentle and forgiving to yourself and do things that will let you please yourself instead of others.

Focus on You

Figure out what you want in your life and what you want to see happen. Maybe you are angry today about what happened in your relationship, but you have to learn to let this go and better yourself.

Dig deep inside of yourself and figure out why the relationship ended and what you are looking for to have happiness. Know what you couldn’t get out of that relationship and let that sink in.

Let Them Go

One thing that you have to realize is that you need to know if you really want to let this person go or not. Do you still love them?

Love is hard to find and maybe you still think and wonder if you really did want to leave them. Maybe you should try to get back together. If you still think that you are compatible and that you didn’t break up because of cheating or abuse, you can try to see if the relationship will work out better the second time.

If someone wants to know if they should get back with their ex, look deep at where the relationship was and what was going on. Find out if he is meant to work out with you or if you missed something the first time.

When you break up for reasons that aren’t that serious, you might be able to work the relationship back out and to find happiness with them.

Talk About It

Find someone that you trust that you can share your feelings with. Talk about why you broke up and how you feel.

Make sure that you are with someone you trust and in a safe place. This can be a family member or a friend.

Tell them the feelings you are having and what you are having a hard time with.

Stop Blaming

Once you break up you need to stop blaming yourself and your partner. You need to let things go. Even if things were bad, you broke it off and you have suffered long enough. Stop thinking about it and move on.

No Contact

Do the no contact rule with this person so that you do not run into them all the time or see them on social media. Block them and stop going to the same places that you used to go together.

If things ended poorly, you need to keep space between you and your ex and make sure that you are not spending time thinking about them or looking at things they are doing.

You need time and space to heal, and you can do this by not communicating with them, not texting them and not looking at their social media. If they want to talk to you, you need to at least wait a month and give yourself time to heal.

Go Out of Town

Take some time to go out and find out new things that you can do. Explore the town or go on a mini vacation.

Think about things that you want to do and reflect on things that help you escape and have fun.

Find Your Next Move

Figure out what you want to do next. Do you want to date someone new?  Do you have a new career that you have in mind? Are there hobbies that you want to try out that you never would before?

What about friends? Do you have old friends that you neglected?  Figure out what you want to do and then do it.

Let Them Go

Let go of people that have contact with your ex. Cut the ties with people that still talk to him and still have information about you.

Feel Your Feelings

No matter what you are feeling, allow yourself to feel them. When people break up, they sometimes hold their feelings in because they are ashamed of them.

Whatever you are feeling, you need to embrace them and not let them control you. Feel them and then let them go.

Explore and understand what you are feeling and if you show yourself love by allowing yourself to grieve, you will heal a lot faster.

Daydreaming of What Could Have Been

Stop thinking about what could have been and make a new life for yourself. You have to let things go and move on.

Figure out a way to stop getting sucked into the past and move on to the present. Stop wondering if you should have stayed with your ex and know that your decision was for the best.

Forgive Yourself and Them

No matter what caused the relationship to end, you have to forgive yourself and your ex. Doing this can help you to heal and move on.

You have to look at where you are right now and not let things hold you back. Maybe you don’t want to forgive that person, but you have to so that you can move on.

Do not blame yourself for things and even if you made a mistake, forgive yourself and be happy.

Live the Best Life

Now is the time to go out and live your best life. Do not sit at home alone and sulking. Do not get out of control and learn to take your life back.

Remember who you were before you got with that person and now better your life and become the best you can be.

Give yourself credit for things you have done that are good.

Look Forward

Stop looking at the past and choose to look at the future. Figure out what you want to do in your life and what you will do to make your life good.

Stop holding yourself back because of mistakes that you have made. Let things go and learn to be happy in your life.

Trust that you will find happiness and that your life will be better. Stop putting faith in others but believe in yourself.

Meet People

Go out and meet new people. Make new relationships and allow your life to be open. Find people that you relate to and do not hold back the relationships that you can make.

Go out in the world and meet as many new people as you can. Have fun. This doesn’t mean you have to fall in love right away but enjoy life.


Love is something that is very hard, and it is hard when you have to break up and lose love. When a relationship is over, it can be hurtful to both people.

If you have been hit hard in a breakup, you will love someone again. This will come naturally to you and you will recover from your loss.

Know that you were with this person for a purpose but now it is time to move on. You can reach your dreams and your goals and be your own person.

When you lose love, it can hurt your ego and cause you pain. You will find your life purpose and no matter what is going on in your life, figure out who you are.

You will see that there are so many opportunities around you and that you will find your happiness in the end. Find your own light and your own journey and do good for who you are and what you want.

Getting over someone will not happen right away but take time and live the best life that you can live.

If you have the right attitude after a breakup, you will see that you will get over your hurt and you will be able to move on.

Life After a Breakup

When the person that you loved has left you, you will see that you have to spend time letting go. Do not feel that you have to do anything special right away after your breakup but learn to live your life and to change what is going on inside of you.

Transform your thinking and do the best that you can and be the best that you can. Find joy in your life and love again.
