Emotions and Self Esteem :
How long does the pain last?
There´s no set answer on how long it will take you to get over a breakup. If you have wanted to get out of a relationship for a while, the breakup might actually seem a relief and you might be completely over it in a few weeks. However, if it was a shock to you, and especially if there were betrayals involved, it can take a really long time to mend yourself.
Give yourself the time. Spend some time with yourself, and a lot with friends, and do things you enjoy. Go on a trip, even if it´s just for a weekend. It may seem like the end of the world, but everyone on the planet has experienced these heartaches, just like yours. You´ll come through it a stronger person.
