8 Ways to Put Yourself Back Together After a Break-Up
Break-ups are difficult, but these tips will help you get back on your feet.

A break-up can break you apart. And it can be hard to put yourself back together. Even though you might be happy to finally be away from your ex, you may still suffer from some loneliness. If you were dumped, you might feel rejected. If you both grew apart, you may feel lost. If you did the dumping, you may suffer from some guilt emotions.  But now you need to ask yourself, “What do I need?”

For break-up tips and healing advice, pick up my book "The Divorce Ritual."

Consider your goals, health and happiness after a break-up. While anyone can give you advice, one of the most difficult things to do is to look at yourself objectively and decide what you need to do and where you want to go. That’s why I have included my eight tips to help put yourself back together again after a break-up.

*Put the Children First: Obviously, your primary concern is your children. That’s why I always recommend staying on civil terms with your ex so together you can do what’s best for them.

*Nothing to talk About: Unless you have children together, you might not want to respond to your ex for a while if they reach out. You ended things and to keep talking about the break-up is senseless.

Read some exciting and helpful sample highlights from my book "The Divorce Ritual."
