Whether the relationship is one, two or twenty years old a breakup is never easy to handle. It’s a case of mixed feelings depending on the reason behind the breakup. You will probably go through a rollercoaster of emotions. A bit of relief that it’s all over while also disappointed that it didn’t work out. Lets not pretend there won’t be anger, confusion and heartache. It’s a time where you need to reach out to your family and friends and accept whatever support you can get. A huge part of ending a relationship is filling the gap that your ex has left behind. What do you do with all that time? Who will you spend it with? Depending on which part of your life you are in you may find it really easy to fill the void or really hard. If you are in your twenties and your friends are mostly still single, then great! You can just jump back in where you left off from the partying, drinking and late nights. If you are in your late thirties or forties, filling that gap may be a little be harder as your friends may have families of their own. Leaving little precious time for you. It’s not that they don’t want to be there and help you on your road to recovery. It is just hard with two kids and a fulltime job.
