But we can keep our sanity by accepting the bitter truth and thinking toward the future. A positive approach toward life plays a vital role in vanquishing sadness—it gives you the mental strength to cope with hard situations.
Take it as a chance to know yourself more.
What are your priorities in life? What are your dreams and your responsibilities in life?
Remember, you can always restart.

1. First, you have to accept reality.
You had a breakup. Say it, then let it go. Don’t think about it frequently; just try to accept that it occurred.
Don’t let the memories of your ex to take over. Always remember that it is good to abandon relationships that don’t have proper emotional bonding.
You can pray for you and your ex to have happy and healthy individual futures. Don’t speak ill of them—give them respect.
2. End the relationship with a final, good interaction.
Don’t perpetuate conflicts that ended up in nothing but tension and bitterness. Your behavior should be friendly (if you can).
