There's rarely a single reason why a relationship ends, but when it does you’re likely to experience a number of intense feelings as you come to terms with your future.
Splitting with your partner can be like going through a bereavement. It’s likely you’ll experience periods of denial, anger, emptiness, depression and acceptance. And it’s perfectly normal to revisit some of these stages more than once. This is your mind helping you come to terms with the loss of your relationship.
As well as going through these stages, you may also feel confused, alone, or anxious about the future. But there are practical steps you can take to help you cope with how you’re feeling, get through this difficult time, and begin your new life.
Remember: your emotions will recover and you'll begin to see new opportunities and chances to make positive changes for your future.
