Is Your Ex Getting Married?Here Are 7 Ways To Cope With The News . Part 2

4. Stop the social media stalking

Unfollow your ex on all social media platforms, McCance says.

“You may want to think about unfollowing any mutual friends or family of theirs that you may know,” she says. “If not, it’ll lead you down a rabbit hole.”

Even if you unfollow them, you may still want to check in on them from time to time. Don’t, McCance says. Restrain the temptation and just move on.

“It’s almost like self-punishment,” McCance says. “All that commiserating and ruminating will make you feel awful.”

5. Surround yourself with people who love you and keep busy

“You need that energy from the people around you to be reminded about how great you are,” McCance explains. “You need a confidence boost and those who love you will do that for you.”

And on the day you hear the news, McCance suggests to keep yourself occupied by either taking on a task or project or by getting out of the house.

“Practice self-care that day and distract yourself,” she says. “By self-care I mean treat yourself to a spa day, for example. Do something kind for yourself.”

6. Write down all the reasons why it ended

Sometimes people might start contemplating if they’ve made the right choice and only remember the good times in the relationship, McCance says.

Don’t do that – instead, make a list of all the reasons of why the relationship didn’t work out. It will remind you of why you’re not with that person anymore and that you did make the right decision.

7. No need to mention this to your current partner

“I wouldn’t even bring it up to your current partner,” McCance says. “Because now that energy is in your current relationship so keep the past out of it.”

By bringing up your ex, it may also make your partner feel insecure and they’ll wonder if you’ve really moved on.

Watching your ex get married could really be a hard one to go through , you could start feeling like you are the problem most especially if you are still single.

Learn to look past it and be strong.
