This coping tip is probably the trickiest of all the ones you’re likely to read here and it is no April Fool’s joke; take a serious look at forgiving your ex.
Whatever they’ve done in the past and however badly they have behaved towards you, you’re highly unlikely to be able to understand their viewpoint or the reasoning behind it.
You’ll have yourself in sixes and sevens trying to logic it and spend countless hours focused on it instead of enjoying your new life.
If at all possible, repay their actions with a dash of compassion, pity, sadness even, but step towards forgiveness if you can.
The person who will benefit most from this new thinking, is you.
