My worst breakup happened when I was in college. I asked my partner, who I loved very much, if they wanted to stay together after we graduated. It was weird — I went into the conversation basically asking them to be my life partner and left a few hours later with the knowledge that it was over. That period of heartbreak was earth-shattering and barely anything could help me get through it. If you're going through something similar, I bet you wish you had a few mantras to help you get an over an ex, just as I did.
When I was going through it, my friend Kaylis said, "This won't destroy you. Devastate you? Yes. But you are more than that relationship. Your day needs to be for you, putting yourself on the path forward. You are enough. Strong enough, smart enough, loving enough, etc. You are so enough. You just need to get to the day that you don't think about him until your feet hit your bedroom floor. And then, one day, you won't think of him until you're in the shower or eating breakfast." Considering the possibility that I would ever get to a place where my stomach didn't twist in pain at the thought of this person who meant so much to me was, quite frankly, mesmerizing. It took a long, long time, but the time did finally come.
If you're in a similar place, consider repeating the following mantras.
