I can't get over my ex: Advice?

I would delete all pictures of him so you don’t find yourself looking through the pictures of the two of you or him in your phone & getting upset. Reconnect with friends and family. Keep yourself as busy as possible with your little one. Maybe look into dating apps etc? I would defiantly file child support on him. Don’t let him get away with not providing for your baby. He’s still the father! Best of luck mama

It takes time and it doesn’t happen overnight.

When my college boyfriend dumped me, I ended up moving back home with my parents. It was humiliating. I was 27. My nights and weekends stretched out in front of me and I dreaded going home after work and being alone. So I got a waitressing job. It kept my mind occupied and it allowed me to save up money quickly so I could get the heck out of my parent’s house quicker.

For me, it was doing whatever you need to do to keep yourself busy so you’re not dwelling over the past. Work has always been therapeutic for me, so that was what saved me. But it may be different for you. Sign up on an online dating site or app. Join a sports team or running group. Join a gym. Take a cooking class. Whatever you’re interested in - do that.

You will find peace again.

And block them on all social media too. In this situation, ignorance is bliss.

I had to be sad for awhile when I left an ex. It sounds repetitive but just go out, find a good bar girlfriend and karaoke or something. I stayed single for awhile had my tears and had my fun but once I was in a place I didn’t miss him I could finally focus on me, and it turned out me was pretty great on her own.

*Find yourself again. Focus on you and baby, join a gym or go running with a friend regularly. Sometimes physical activities help mentally. There are plenty of things to do that don’t cost money.
*Keep your mind busy; hide or get rid of momentos.
*Occupy yourself with friends, family, etc.
*Talk about it but don’t dwell on it. Talk through the hurt. Don’t push it down, you have to deal with it/feel it so you can move on, but don’t over do it.
*Do NOT call or text him unless it’s baby/parenting related. Don’t be that girl.

When I went through my bad split, whenever I’d start getting upset I’d write down every fault of his whether it was not helping, drinking, constant yelling, etc. then would realize each time that I deserved better. Also, writing down good things about yourself, things you want to do, etc. helps built up confidence again. It’s hard, but you’ll get through this❤️

Take ur time. Remind yourself WHY you are not together. Stay busy…see friends…remember WHY ur not together. Remember to focus on you and the baby. That’s what’s important now. You and that child.
Taking an ex back is like trying to reheat McDknalds in the microwave. It just isnt any good. Lol
