There is a skill – an art, if you will – in surviving a breakup.
We all have to move on somehow after a breakup, but it seems so much easier for some people than for others.
What’s the secret?
Since all breakups are different, so are the ways people deal with them. You may spend the post-breakup period obsessing over your ex or removing all signs of his presence from your life.
It doesn’t matter what you do, the main thing is that you heal.
Breakups can be traumatic; they can shake you to the core and turn everything you thought you knew upside down, making you question your own gut instinct.
Breakups are painful when you break up and they are painful when you break up. It is often difficult when things come to an end, and the end of a relationship can crush you.
Maybe you believed that you found the one person you would spend your life with and for some reason it didn’t work and all of a sudden you have to rethink your entire future.
Sometimes we react emotionally much more passionately and dramatically to a breakup than we expected.
Before you broke up, you assumed that you would be fine and that you were breaking up with your partner for good reasons, and after the breakup you were deadly sad and barely got out of bed.
Our behavior is often influenced by our zodiac sign.
Here’s how to deal with a breakup.
Check it out just in case you need to know how to react the next time you break up.
Aries (March 21st – April 19th)
The Aries separation strategy is twofold. First, you don’t want to look like you were actually hurt, and second, you would get bored quickly if you spent too much time loving your heart.
You fill the time after the breakup with activities and spontaneous undertakings.
You’re usually ready for anything, but trying to come through a breakup makes you even more enterprising. If you can just keep moving, you don’t have to deal with the emptiness your relationship has left.
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
Your relationship isn’t over until you say it, and once the time of your relationship’s death has been explained there won’t be a reunion tour for either of you.
Since Taurus breakups are so final after all, it will take a lot of fondling from friends, family, and yourself to heal your heart.
And for you, pampering means bubble baths, expensive wine, comforting dishes and watching your favorite shows. A cute puppy to cuddle with couldn’t hurt either.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You believe that the best way to get over a breakup is to leave it behind as soon as possible. You’re doubling your social schedule (if that’s even possible) because you won’t meet anyone new if you just hang out in your apartment.
After a breakup, this is a good time for you to make a change, so either change your hair color and / or get it cut, buy new clothes, and join a gym. Geminis enjoy expressing another side of their personality.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
When you love, you love deeply; you never enter into relationships lightly – so when you have to deal with a breakup you spend a lot of time alone writing poems and emails that you will never send. Sometimes you indulge your favorite secret vice, whether it’s ice cream or reality TV.
If someone wants to move you roughly but heartily, to feel better and tell you to pull yourself together, you are also ending that relationship. You need tenderness and compassion when you are lovesick, dear Cancer, and not tactless empty phrases.
Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
One of the strongest traits of Leo is their pride, so be careful if they are hurt by a breakup. You will tell the story of the breakup to just about anyone who is willing to listen.
If the breakup happened because your partner cheated on you, you definitely want revenge, even if it just happened through a chain of public scenes.
Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
When the breakup happens, you’re well prepared and figured out what went wrong, what you could have done better, how to get your ex back, whether you want your ex back at all, or whether it’s best for you to leave it alone and move on.
It’s not that you’re not emotional, you’re just very pragmatic and don’t want to waste time wallowing in sadness, dear Virgo.
Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)
The Libra agrees to the breakup and then just won’t let go. It’s a bit obsessive, but it will come across as good friendship because you are so charming and lovable.
If you say it’s over, let it be over too.
Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
When Scorpio is faced with a breakup, all of his emotions run into high gear. You feel hurt, attacked, rejected, and used.
You are tempted to get revenge, and the really scary thing is that you can wait until your ex has completely forgotten about your promise to get back at him … and then you strike. Your ex will never see it coming.
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
Sagittarius can be straightforward, and there’s nothing like a breakup to make you extra blunt. You are extremely straight forward and hurtful without worrying about the consequences.
Once you’ve said your part and the other one is walking around seriously wounded, you go on a change of scenery so you can meet someone new and forget about your ex completely.
Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)
After a breakup, Capricorn rushes into work and cracks jokes to lighten the mood. You’ll be relieved that you’re not stuck in a relationship that didn’t deliver what is needed in the long run.
Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)
Breakups are when your preference for being a little cut off from your feelings comes in handy. You have no doubt that you will be fine and that you will be better off without your ex.
Aquarians find need terrible and have a policy of not being dependent on anyone, so breaking up won’t hold you back in any way.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces are the most forgiving of all zodiac signs, so when a breakup comes up, it means you tried your best to make it work, and it just wasn’t meant to be.
You will be devastated and maybe play the victim in your head in the movie. It will definitely take you some time to recover. Hopefully, you can redirect all of the negative feelings into some creative projects.
