Our expert says:
How long it takes to heal is a very personal thing and is also linked to what happened in the relationship and in the ending of the relationship. However, it also depends what you do next. If you spend a lot of time alone pondering the what-ifs and only thinking about that person and the losses it will also feel a lot harder.
It is important to grieve, as any ending or even change in a relationship is a loss of sorts, but alongside that grieving it is also important to get on with the other aspects of your life and also be open to new opportunities. This can be hard to motivate yourself in, but if you do, you find that gradually you begin to feel stronger and begin to heal.
