You have to accept your breakup by focusing on yourself. By becoming your best possible self, being happy, and putting your old relationship in the past, you can evaluate whether you want to get back together with him or her again. Although, in theory, this sounds easy to do, it will be hard but it gets easier with time and with the support of your friends and family.

Acceptance is key. The thing is you have to accept things no matter how it ends or re-occurs. I'm sure you'll be fine.

Accepting a break-up is a difficult thing to do, because you have an emotional connection to the person. The best way to accept it is to fully understand how and why it happened, and accepting that it wasn't meant to be. As they say "if you love it set it free, if it comes back maybe it's meant to be" - it's one of these situations, if it's meant to be you two will get back together.

Accepting a break-up is a very gradual process (unfortunately). Just focusing on one's inner growth is important, in my opinion. Whether, there are chances of getting back together or not, it shouldn't stop anyone from developing any potential talents and interests. Always, keep looking at the bigger picture and a break-up just a very small facet of life at large.

Well, in some cases there are chances of a re-union. The most you can do to get back with the person is calling him/her twice or thrice and if the person replies in the negative all the three times, then consider the relationship has ended and don't turn back as it would make things harder for both of you.

Stop watering a dead flower. If things ended, its definitely for the better or it wouldnt have ended!

Accept how things are now. If it's meant to then it will be. Don't become obsessed with the break up because you want to get back together with the person. Continue to live your life go out and have fun to try to keep your mind off of it. Maybe eventually you and the person will work things out in the future

Try to live in the moment. Acknowledge that you can't know what the future will hold for your relationships. Focus on yourself right now. You're newly single - what things would like to do that you weren't able to in your last relationship? Try to enjoy being single now; there's always the possibility of reconciliation down the road.

Meet other people. You are going to forget him/her if you are talking with other people

If you honestly believe deep down that a) there is a possibility of you getting back together, and b) you're willing to put in the effort to rebuild your relationship because he/she is important enough to justify it, then the best thing you can do is just to calmly approach your ex and tell him/her how you truly feel. Stay calm and candid, and avoid getting overly emotional. Explaining your feelings using rational thought is the best way to approach this situation.

If you already know that there is a chance to get back together. Do it because you know each others more than any one else do.

Acceptance isn't something you can force - you need to slowly pick up the pieces of yourself that you have lost. Accept their decision to leave; that is all you can do.

Breakups always happen for a reason. Take the time to understand and think about that reason. Getting back together with an ex is almost always a bad idea.
