Moving on from breakup

Hi Ms. Rica:
I need your help. My girlfriend broke up with me. Biglaan lang po. Nung tinanong ko siya kung bakit, sabi po niya hindi niya alam. Hindi ko po maintindihan kung may ginawa akong mali. I was already planning a life with her. She doesn’t want to talk to me anymore. I just want to know what I did wrong. Why won’t she tell me?

Hi K,
I’m really sorry that you’re going through a break up now. Mahirap talaga ang makipaghiwalay, lalo na kung ikaw ang hiniwalayan at hindi mo pa alam ang dahilan.

You may find it unfair that she did it out of the blue and she doesn’t want to talk to you anymore. It sounds like your ex-girlfriend needs time and space from you to reflect on her needs and desires, especially when it comes to relationships or having a partner.

Kung nasabi mo na sa kaniya na gusto mo siyang kausapin pero ayaw pa rin niya, it may be best to give her the space she wants.

Kapag pinilit mo, baka lalo pa siyang maguluhan, mainis, at lumayo. Maybe it’s true that she doesn’t know what’s going on with her. Hence, she also doesn’t know what to tell you. Devastating as it may seem, you have to let her go.

Masakit talaga, pero madami naman pwedeng gawin para maka-move on ka sa pangyayari. How about getting support from your family or friends? Maybe they’ll be able to help you get through the pain and bring back your self-confidence.

For a lot of people, having a strong support system like friends and other loved ones helped them get through a break up.

It’s important that you take some time out to grieve for the loss. Okay lang malungkot. Okay lang din magalit. What’s important is that you’re aware of how it’s affecting the rest of your life. Minsan kasi, hindi natin namamalayan na hindi na healthy ang pagmumukmok natin.

Consider having a new hobby or learning a new sport. Meet up with your friends. Catch up with a family member you haven’t talked to for a long time.

Though these things may not take your mind off the pain of the breakup, they could prevent you from feeling extreme sadness due to your loss. Malay mo, you might meet someone new! Take it from the sexy mind

Though it may seem easier said than done, you’ll find a way to be okay on your own in time, and likely sometime in the future, you’ll meet that special someone who will feel the same way as you do about sharing your lives together.
