How to cope with an ex moving on. A relationship ending is bad enough. Especially when it did not end on your terms. The situation is harder when your ex has moved on with her life perhaps even with another person. This happens to everyone. In this article I am going to give you some tips that will help you cope with an ex moving on.
Keep Your Composure – If you happen to come across your ex and they acknowledged you be polite and cordial. Crying or having an angry outburst will usually only make the ex feel as if his winning some kind of contest. If the ex still has feelings for you, he'll wonder how you manage to be so composed. If he doesn't, he'll get annoyed at your composure.
Realize you have no control over your ex's actions – You are usually completely powerless in this situation, especially if you were broken up with. The quicker you can come to terms with the fact that you aren't in control, the quicker you can move on. After moving on, you'll eventually find a situation where you do have some control (a new love), and you can be happy again.
Do Not Blame Yourself – It is pointless to sit around dwelling on what you think were bad decisions on your part in the relationship. In fact, it usually isn't completely anyone's fault. When the relationship was good, it was because of both of you. Now that it's bad and over, you have to remember that you were only half of the relationship. It is also good to realize that if your ex broke up with you, she wasn't giving your feelings much thought, which isn't a good relationship to be in at all.
Keep Yourself Busy – Hang out with friends, catch a movie or do anything else that will help you to not dwell on your ex. Sitting around all day worrying about what your ex is doing is not going to make you any happier. It may be hard to have fun with friends at first, but you'll eventually get back into your old groove.
Time Heals All Wounds – This is probably another thing people don't like to hear when they're heartbroken. Just think back to all the other times you've been heartbroken, and how many times you eventually got over it. Most likely, the same will happen and it will not hurt as much in a few months (if that). You'll soon adapt to your new life, and the situation will not seem so dreary after all.
