How to deal with break up?

Just got out of long term relationship and my anxiety has gone from 0-100 . When that person has been your rock it's hard to deal with this on my own now.

Breakups are hard, very hard so dont be too hard on yourself....... I had a bad break up 3 years ago.... in that journey I did a lot of soul searching and I'm trying to love myself , it takes practice but life will get good again!!

Just take it day by day and try have some fun! ;-)

It will be a hard time, as your used to that person around!! But u have to get used to dealing with things on your own with out that support from them... Take each day as it comes and put your focus in to some thing positive

Breakups and heartbreak suck. But, they are part of being human. The bad feelings do indeed go away. It's great that you post here. I found myself diving into dating websites, just to get some positive feedback about myself. As long as you take care to be safe about doing things in real life, you might find that helpful for just the next few days. The dating websites are also helpful as reminders that there are other people besides the one you just broke up with.

My worse break up was horrible and i kind of went off the rails a bit. I found that just enjoy the little things of each day can't help make a major impact also the best bit of advice i read was "even if you don't want to fake a smile each day, soon enough you won't be faking it will come naturally"

Things will get better have a day or two and let all your emotions out then, start building a new you, even something small like a new pair of shoes or a new haircut/colour.

Just take every day as it comes and talk to people, friends, family and on here.

You don't feel ok now, but you will. When they say time heals all wounds it's so true. Don't blame yourself. Look for the positives in it. Was that person always good to you? Treat you the way you treated them? Respected you? If no then you haven't made a loss you've got yourself a new opportunity for you and all the things you want to do.

You will have bad days. I still struggle with my boyfriend cheating on me 7 months ago, but we're together still. It's a different story of course but I try to remind myself I'll be ok no matter what happens.

You'll get stronger and you will look back and think wow I should of treated myself better...I do. I wish I was stronger at the time and put myself first. But I get it, it's difficult.

Take care of yourself and never give up on love.
