Coming to terms with the end of a relationship can be a really difficult process. It can be easy to resort to unhealthy habits to cope with the sadness, but that's why it's important to learn about healthy ways to cope with a breakup that can make the healing process not just more bearable, but also something to grow from. According to Elle Huerta, breakup expert and founder of the breakup app Mend, it's important to be prepared for the physical and psychological withdrawal that often occurs when separating from a partner.
"The first part of a breakup is really physical," Huerta previously told Elite Daily. "Breakups change your physiology and neurochemistry, so it's normal to feel like you're going through withdrawal." When you're feeling low, it's important to remember that you can still experience love again in the future. "If you're in a rough patch, remind yourself that there is going to be a low point to every day," said Huerta. "You may have lost love, but you're still loved and lovable, and a breakup is a time to be reminded of this." With this in mind, here's how 10 Redditors got through it. And remember: You're not alone!
