6. Reconnect With Friends

It is common for people in serious relationships to put less reliance on their friendships. Because of this, you may find yourself without clear social outlets following the breakup. This is the best time to reconnect with friends from the past and reaffirm your relationship. They can provide the needed love and nurturing to move through the loss.

However, avoid relationships that will push negative coping skills on you. If your friends pressure you to drink, do drugs or engage in unhealthy sexual situations, they aren’t great friends. Healthy people will influence you to make healthy choices.
