You can bounce back easily from a breakup with these three tips.

Frank Sinatra definitely had the right idea when he sang, “pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again..”

Easier said than done though, especially when you feel as though your whole life is falling apart.

This may sound dramatic, but it is not an unrealistic feeling, as those who have experienced or those who are in the midst of experiencing the breakup of their marriage or long-term relationship could vouch for it.

Couples tend to build their lives around each other, and when the relationship ends, so do feelings of security and certainty about the future.

Here is relationship advice in healing yourself after your breakup:

• Grieve  Accept that you need to grieve. Going through the grieving process is essential and completely normal. Allow yourself to  grieve for a healthy amount of time before moving on with your life.

• Reclaim YOU – Rediscover who you are as an individual and figure out how you want to live your life… for you!

• Move Forward – Once you’ve rebuilt yourself, you are now ready to find your real true love.

Want to find out more about each of these steps and how to turn them into your reality?
