This doesn’t sound like a bad idea but waiting a bit to get a clear mind before jumping into the dating game again is best to avoid the hollow feeling that comes with a “rebound” hookup.
Happiness is something that comes from within and letting other people determine your mood is something you should avoid at all costs.
With that being said, there are quite a number of things you can do when you go out of a toxic relationship that can help you stay happy.
The time you have on your hands should be used in discovering a part of yourself you have no idea was there.
Doing so can do a lot in solidifying and boosting your confidence before you go in search of another relationship.
Exercises can do a lot to boost your mood when you’re feeling down. It also helps to detoxify whatever ill feelings you have by ensuring that your body releases endorphins which help to increase your confidence and make you more physically attractive to the opposite sex.
Trust me when I say it’s better you go jogging or visit the gym than mopping over food while watching a sad movie at home.
Make New Friends
One of the best ways to forget a bad relationship is to make new friends. New friends will bring about new ideas and experiences which will make you heal and forget the pain of your past relationship quickly.
New friends will help you explore new hobbies or have newer experiences with old ones. The activities you participate in will help you burn time as it will provide you something to focus on.
This will prevent you from dwelling on your past relationship while also helping you find a new passion which is bound to make you a better and more intelligent person.
Never Isolate Yourself
The worst thing you can do to yourself after coming out of a heartbreak is to isolate yourself. You must do all you can to mingle with people even when you’re not feeling up to it. Spend time with old friends while you meet new ones.
Surrounding yourself with positive people will do a lot to lift your spirits and also boost your confidence. In time, you will begin to feel like the person you want to be, someone that doesn’t dwell on the past.
Avoid Memories Of The Past
You most likely will be surrounded with memories of your toxic relationship but the best thing to do is to stay far from anything that evokes memories of your time in the toxic relationship.
Avoid keeping memorabilia of them or going to the places you used to hang out with them. Stay off tv sows that remind you of them and keep discussions with their friends as minimal and brief as possible.
Invest In Yourself
You should invest a lot in yourself if you want to quickly put the toxic relationship behind you. Change your wardrobe and look. Look for new places to hangouts and be open to new challenges.
As soon as you’re sure you’re ready to date again, go in with the aim of having fun and you can be as selective as possible with the kind of partner you want to pursue.
You should have an idea of the kind of person you want to date and should go specifically for those kind of people.
Don’t waste time flirting with someone you know you won’t get along with in the end! Be confident and allow the new and improved you shine. Be rest assured, you’d find someone better than the last person you dated.
