Here, we make an attempt to provide you with some suggestions that might help you in relieving your pain.

Some Helpful Tips

Accept, Admit and Forget

First, accept the mistake and admit the fact. Brace yourselves to make amends and start all over again. Think of what you are going to do ahead. Doing this, half of your job will be done. Although this might not be cakewalk, make sure you cut off any contact with your ex.

Penning the Pain

Grieving is as important as letting go. What can be done is that the thoughts and the emotions can be penned down as a way to let it out of your system. Studies have shown that writing down thoughts does aid in emotional healing.

What Are Friends For

Friends can give you some valuable advice. They are your support system when you are going through this emotional turmoil. If it was someone from the office, you will have to find colleagues who are not remotely connected with him to spend time with.
The best bet would be to spend time and hangout with friends who are not from your office. Think of socializing with friends who might involve or talk about your partner only after you feel strong enough to handle that.

Keep Yourself Busy
