Its really tuff when the person whom you love or care about breaks you apart and leaves you into pieces. You will remember him for always but it will keep bugging you for sometime. To build a relationship it takes a lot of time, energy also it becomes a part of your routine and when it breaks there is a complete void and that is what you are missing my friend. If you want to know more about different stages of breakup i will suggest you to go and watch a video named After us and you will get a fair idea about what i mean to say....

Think about all of the negative. Use your hatred to move forward. Convert negativity to positivity to change yourself. Build a wall around your heart. He quits on you now is better than when you are at your worst.

I would say that unfortunately, these type of feelings and memories, most often, are only cured with time. I would try to keep in my mind that he had cheated on you and, for just that reason alone, he was and would be, a negative presence in your life. As difficult as it may seem now, replacing the void with positive people and activities will help cure the heartache you're feeling. Also, focusing on the positive will get you on the right track to forgetting him, not to mention, putting you into a position to meet that next special someone!

That's rough and I'm sorry to hear that. We can't forget things like that easily. However, don't worry! You can do it! Firstly, you have to be willing to forget / move on. You can choose between staying in the same place, or to move forward in life. It's great that you're looking for help, but make sure deep inside you're ready to move on. Second, make yourself busy! Do various of things to fill your time. Study, read books, find a favorite band/singer, draw, jogging, meditate, etc. You can be distracted from sadness this way and you can find your favorite things too! Third, love yourself. Don't blame yourself for what happened. Cheating IS cheating no matter what the reason is. You have the right to be sad, mad and cry. Let your emotions out. Then slowly help yourself to get back up. You can ask friends if you need help! You're not alone🤗 These things can be hard for you and I understand. No need to rush, things like this take time to be healed. If you think its bothering you and and your life, seek a therapist! I hope it goes well!

Life goes on, the sadness fades by time, you deserve to be loved and appreciated.. try to stay busy so yo won’t have time to think about him and one day you will find true love! Be confident and be sure you will meet your perfect match, a loyal one that deserves your love and loves you back as you wish.. try to discover yourself to find success and never look back.. think positively and try to enjoy your life.. life is full of good things,, always try to find what brings you joy and happiness and avoid negative thoughts..
