Imagine getting to know someone, learning about the things they love, how they like their coffee,

meeting their family…..only to break-up with them.

Yeah…it’s nobody’s favorite part about a relationship but it happens. The aftermath of a break-up can either be

an enlightening experience or a traumatic one. It all depends on how you handle yourself. Tai the FM96 Rizz host

has taken the liberty of curating a list of ways to handle a break-up like a champ.

  1. FEEL EVERYTHING NOW. When you’re fresh out of a break-up you’re going to feel a ton of different emotions that at first would be too overwhelming for your mind to comprehend and most of our instincts or intuition will tell us to bottle it up and deal with it later. DON’T DO THAT. In my experience, it never works out. If you’re feeling angry, sad, jealous. Give yourself the freedom to feel all of those emotions earlier on because once you’re done feeling it. You’re done. You’ll be able to move on with your life feeling a little bit lighter.
  2. GIVE YOURSELF TIME. You’re probably going through this break-up while you’re having a hard time at work, you’re assignments are due or you’re having problems at home and with all of this happening you’re unable to grieve. Please give yourself time to feel. Cry if you must but allow yourself time to understand all the parts of you that are hurt so you begin rebuilding yourself from there.
  3. REDISCOVER YOURSELF. When you’re in a relationship for a certain amount of time you begin to make said person your identity and lose site of your own interests. Some break-ups turn out to be a blessing in disguise because you’re able to rediscover yourself and you start getting back to the hobbies you once enjoyed and even pick up a few new ones.
  4. DON’T GO THROUGH IT ALONE. Some find that isolation after a break-up is the best way to deal with it. The only problem with that is that humans aren’t built to be alone. That’s why solitary confinement is a form of punishment in most prisons. That’s why we need each other. Find your safe space whether it be among your closest family or your best friends allow them to help you and hold your hand through it. Because 10 times out of 10 they’re more than happy to be there for you.
