#10 Back Your Decision Confidently
This is very important after the breakup. If the breakup was your decision, keep in mind that only going back and re-thinking about all the good times you had with your partner may cause you to forget the reasons why you broke it off. Try not to second-guess the situation if the decision to end the relitionship was not yours.
#9 Cut Off All Contact
If you are in contact, you are still in love. You need time to heal and so do they. Maintaining a channel of communication will never allow those wounds to fully close. Block them from Facebook. Don’t hang out with them in group settings. Especially don’t show up unexpectedly to their house or work. Don’t randomly call just to “see how they’re doing.” No drunk texting, either. You can continue communication only when you’ve completely moved on and want to be friends with no ulterior motives.
