1. Give him space
Let me break it down: Don’t call, text, tweet, or send messages by friends.
After a breakup, most times we want to talk about it or attempt to rekindle the romance too fast. Space is sometimes the best thing. I remember when my ex- boyfriend and I would have an argument. I wanted to talk about things immediately after. But being slightly more logical than me, he would suggest we cool off and talk about it later because we may emotionally say things we would regret. As the stubborn, ‘wonderful’ girlfriend I was, I frequently declined his offer and would proceed to talk anyway. Of course I ended up saying things I regretted and didn’t even actually mean.
The same applies with break-ups, sometimes it’s best to let time heal a wound before attempting to speak. Time and space can work a type of magic that humans just can’t do.
