An Introvert’s Guide to Dealing With a Breakup

Breakups are hard on everyone. Whether you are a girl or a guy, that time after a breakup is going to take you into someone of your life’s worse days. It is at those time you are in dire need of some close friends or family that can help you get through it and who can make you get back to normal life as soon as possible. What about the introverts, though? We all know what life of an introvert is and how their social circle is limited to just a handful of people. Dealing with breakups for introverts, therefore, is much difficult than how we would have it. This article is going to give a few ways introverts can overcome the sadness of breakups.

#1 Take a deep breath and chill out

A breakup is a sad thing, but it shouldn’t be made a matter of life and death. You need to calm yourself and understand that it is not the end of the world. You have your whole life ahead of you, and a million things are waiting for you. This one sad incident should not put you down in any case. Your sadness and low feelings are all a product of your mind. If your mind is positive, then you will not at all go through a sad phase after a breakup.

#2 Tell your friends to chill out

If you have a bunch of extrovert friends, then you are going to facing a hard time with them at this point. They love you of course, but their ways of fixing you are just not the right one. They will immediately put you on new dating websites and take you to parties to meet new people. They will be trying their best to hook you up with someone or get to flirt at least. Well, you are an introvert, and it’s your nature to be into hat shell. You need to tell your friends that you are comfortable being that way and that they need to calm themselves. All you probably need to know is that they are there for you and that belief alone will be enough.

#3 You have to process and grieve

As much as it is healthy not to take a breakup too seriously, it is equally important to analyze the situation and know what went wrong. It isn’t easy for an introvert to give someone that much love and importance, so they definitely have to grieve over it now that they have left. At the same time, you should process the situation where you made a mistake or where the other person was lacking. This will ensure that the next time it doesn’t get repeated.

#4 Get over it

After you are done with all the steps from 1 till 3, it is now time to let it go. You have lost a loved one, but it wasn’t all on you, you still have it for you to love someone else. Know that fate has chosen someone better for you and it is only sometimes that you find him/her.
