If you changed during the relationship and gave up friendships, put aside passions, and didn't have your own identity, now is the time to change that. Get to know yourself again and spend time doing things you like, being around those who support you, and growing back into your own person. Find new things that interest you, try different activities, join groups, and figure out what makes you happy. Take back what you lost from the relationship, and learn from every one of your experiences.
"Take plenty of time for yourself, nurture yourself, and give yourself time and space to heal. When your cup is full, so to speak . . . everything else will follow," Sangeeta Pillai, founder of Soul Sutras told POPSUGAR. There's no need to rush the healing process. You can take as much time as you need to figure things out, and there's no reason to be quick about it. Feel your emotions, connect with them, and grow through them. Being able to heal fully can only happen if you take time to let yourself.
