53. After a breakup, cut off all lines of communication.
ALL. I mean it. That means no calling him (even if he calls you first) and no texting him (even if he texts you first). I don’t care if it’s his birthday, if his mom is sick, or if he’s crying - DO NOT make contact with him.
I know it’s hard, and I know you miss him, but believe me, you’ll never get over him if you don’t let yourself see what life is like without him. Who knows, maybe you WILL get back together later on down the road - but before you can make the decision that life is better with him in it, you need to see what life is truly like without him in it.
