Last Update : October 29, 2019 by Olivia

What not to do after a break-up? Indeed, a very important question!

Finding the courage to date again after a break-up should really be your goal, wouldn’t you agree?

That’s why you should avoid at all cost the most common mistakes people tend to do after a break-up.

Have you fallen under the trap?

Check out the following mistakes you shouldn’t do!

# Stalking your ex

Breaking-up in the era of social media is a challenge! It is normal to obsess a bit about your ex and to start to check his/her social media activity…but the line between checking things and stalking on social media is a fine one.

The best thing you could do? Avoid using social media for a little bit! Especially if you’re planning to stalk your ex, it will only hurt you, no good will come from it. A healthy detox is the best option for your heart and for your mind.

# Drastic changes in your look

Another classic after the break-up: tattoos, piercings, haircuts, etc.

Have you thought about changing your look as a cleansing ceremony?

Well, it might not be the best idea…

We understand how you might have found yourself listening to break up songs and thinking that the best way to feel renewed is probably to change something about the way you look, but if your mind is not in the right place, the result won’t probably be great!

The best you can do is to try to cleanse your mind and your heart first, once you feel you’re starting to get over your ex, then it will be the perfect moment to change your looks!

# Give up on romance and love

This one is perhaps the most important one to avoid of all three: drama.

An overwhelming feeling of disappointment in love will probably overcome you. That’s normal, it’s part of the grief of the break-up.

However, the end of a relationship doesn’t mean the end of love and romance for you. Quite the contrary. It rather means that you’ve got experience that you can put into practice in your next relationship.

The best thing you can do is that start your action plan on how to get over your break-up. You can do it!
