You will never forget your first true love. How could you? They were the first person that you felt such intense feelings for that being apart from them was like missing a part of yourself. Whether you felt that as a young person or someone at college, the subsequent breakup with your first love can rip you apart inside. However, that does not mean you should get back together with them.
Nothing will crush your confidence in yourself like getting a divorce. People talk about marriage like it is some unbreakable bond, and if your marriage falls apart, it feels as though you’ve somehow failed horribly in some way. Yet, when one relationship ends, that doesn’t have to sink your confidence.
Breaking up with a partner can be one of the toughest things you ever do. The sudden disconnection from someone that you saw every day and spent a lot of time with will leave you feeling empty, like a shell of your former self. However, there are ways that you can get past it, and surviving the first weeks is the most important part.
