You will survive this breakup.

There’s a skill — an art if you will — to surviving a breakup. We all must go on after a breakup but some people seem to do it so much easier than others. What is their secret? Do they just not invest very much into the relationship so that when it’s over they’re fine, or do they just bury their pain deeply so that on the surface everything seems wonderful but inside they’re suffering?

Since most breakups are different, so are the ways that people deal with them. You may spend your post-breakup time completely obsessing over your ex or maybe you spend a lot of time completely erasing their presence from your life. It doesn’t matter what you do as long as you heal.

Breakups can be traumatic; they can shake you to your core and they can take everything you thought you knew and turn it upside down so you question your own gut instincts. Breakups hurt if you’re the one being broken up with, and they hurt when you’re the one doing the breaking up. Endings are often difficult and the ending of a relationship can devastate you.

You may have thought that you had found the one person you’d be spending your life with, and for whatever reason it didn’t work out; and suddenly, you must rethink your entire future.

Sometimes our emotional response to a breakup is far more passionate and dramatic than we expected. Before you initiated the breakup, you assumed you’d be fine that you were breaking up with your partner for all the right reasons, and then after the breakup you were completely gutted and couldn't get out of bed.

Much of the time, our behavior is influenced by our zodiac sign. Here’s how you deal with a breakup. Check it out, just in case you need to know how you might react during your next breakup.

 

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

The Aries breakup strategy is two-fold. First, you don't want to look like you're actually hurting; secondly, you'd get bored quickly if you were spending most of your time being heartbroken. You fill your post-breakup time with activities and spontaneous fun things.

You're usually up for anything but when you're trying to deal with a breakup, you're even more enthusiastic. If you can just keep moving, you won't have to deal with the void that your relationship left.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Your relationship isn't over until you say it is, and once the time of death on your relationship has been called, there will be no reunion tour for the two of you. Since Taurus breakups are ultimately so final, you need a lot of pampering by friends, family and yourself to heal your heart.

And pampering for you means bubble baths, expensive wine, comfort foods, and binge-watching your favorite British baking shows. A cute puppy to cuddle with wouldn't hurt either.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

You believe the best way to get over a breakup is to move on as quickly as possible. You'll double your social schedule (if that's even possible) because you won't meet somebody new hanging around your apartment. After a breakup is a great time for you to switch it up, so you'll either change the color and/or cut off your hair, buy some new clothes, and join a gym. Gemini is excited to express another side to their personality.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

When you love, you love deeply; you never enter into relationships lightly, so when you're dealing with a breakup you spend a lot of time alone writing poems and emails that you won't send. Sometimes you'll indulge in your favorite guilty pleasure whether it's ice cream or reality television.

If someone tries to tough love you into feeling better and tells you to get over it, you'll end your relationship with them as well. You need sensitivity and compassion when you're heartbroken, Cancer, not an insensitive catch phrase.

One of the strongest character traits that a Leo has is their pride, and when it's wounded by a breakup, watch out. You will tell the story of the breakup to almost everybody who will listen. If the breakup was caused by your partner cheating on you, you will definitely want some revenge, even if it's just making a number of scenes in public.

You'll be thoroughly prepared by the time the breakup happens, and you'll have figured out what went wrong, what you could have done better, how you can get your ex back, if you even want your ex back, or if it's best for you to cut your losses and move on. It's not that you're not emotional, it's just that you're very practical and don't want to waste time wallowing in sadness, Virgo.

Libra will agree to the breakup and then simply not let go. It's a little obsessive but it will come off as being a good friend because you're so charming and likable. If you say it's over then let it be over.

When Scorpio is dealing with a breakup, all their emotions are going to get ramped way up. You'll feel wounded, attacked, rejected, and used. You'll be tempted to exact some revenge, and the really scary part about that is that you can wait until your ex has completely forgotten about you promising to get back at them... and then you strike. Your ex will never see it coming.

Sagittarius can be direct, and nothing like a breakup to make you extra blunt. You'll be extremely blunt and hurtful without considering any consequences. Once you've had your say and the other person is the walking wounded, you'll take off for a change of scenery so that you can meet someone new and completely forget about your ex.

Breakups are the time when your preference for being somewhat cut off from your emotions comes in handy. You have no doubt that you'll be fine and that you're better off without your ex. Aquarius abhor neediness and make it a policy not to rely on anyone, so a breakup won't slow your roll in any way.

Pisces is the most forgiving of the signs, so if a breakup is happening, it means that you tried your best to work things out and it just wasn't meant to be. You'll be devastated and may find yourself playing the victim in the movie in your mind. It will definitely take some time for you to recover. Hopefully, you'll be able to channel all the negative things you're feeling into some creative projects.
