When getting over a relationship I always try to invoke that feeling of being in love. You know how it is when you're in love, everything seems new and bright and you feel light and elated. I try to feel that way about being single.
I imagine the world is once again brand new and waiting for me to enjoy it on my own; and on my own terms. It always starts with a haircut. I don't visit the hairdresser that often so by the time I go there are a lot of dead ends to be removed.
I try to enjoy that process of removing the dead ends as a symbolic, meditative experience; which usually works. I personally enjoy learning something new so after a breakup, I pick something up like learning a new language or a new sport.
That really helps me to feel positive about change. Plus, it gives me something else to talk about besides the endless "So, how are you feeling now?"
