Remember and do these six things to begin your healing process:
While healing is a process, you have the power to move on even when your ex already has. Your ex just happened to stumble upon someone else before you did. You get to be the one who made special Red Velvet cake or introduced them to Game of Thrones or whatever made your relationship special. They are not mutually exclusive. One of the best ways to cope when your ex has a new love interest is to take care of yourself.
The relationship you two shared was special and unique and nobody can take away from that. They are not mutually exclusive. While healing is a process, you have the power to move on even when your ex already has. If your ex moved on before you did, dealing with this can be especially difficult. The memories you share are yours and yours alone. Often times, we confuse love with life compatibility, intimacy and relationship status. You can write that it was horrible and you were in lots of pain, and then you can end the story writing that you got help and were able to move on with your head held high and more to offer the person you choose to spend your life with.
