After going through a bad breakup, it’s not uncommon to feel pretty miserable about yourself. The one person who meant the most to you is now gone and you feel like the world is ending. Even worse, you may feel like you have no worth due to the relationship ending.
Every time you look in the mirror you only see yourself as the person that your ex didn’t want, and the thought of moving on after the breakup seems impossible if you can’t get back with your ex. In actuality, you still have a chance of getting back with you ex, but only if you can pull yourself together and build some self confidence after the breakup.
When your ex first fell in love with you, you were probably filled with confidence and felt great about yourself. To help rekindle that same feeling, you need to build your self-confidence! The following steps will help you boost your confidence and increase your chances of getting back with your ex in no time.
1. Positive Attitude
Most people don’t realize this but attitude is everything. As your relationship started to head south, you were probably becoming more and more negative due to all the stresses affecting both of you. Start being more positive and tell yourself that both of you are going to be back together again in no time. When you are more positive, you will be able to think more rationally.
2. Healthy Body
People are more likely to gain weight while in a long term relationship since they are no longer worried about getting the attention of the opposite sex. Thus it is specially important to give your body some extra attention during this time. Start an exercise regimen and eat healthy with the goal of losing weight or building muscle. This will make you feel more confident when you look in the mirror, as well as getting your ex’s attention if they see you out and about.
3. Self Image
One of the best things you can do to build confidence and get the attention of others is changing your look. Go to the barber or your stylist and tell them you want to try something new. Experiment with some different hairstyles or even colors to redefine yourself. After you have done this, grab one of the latest magazines and see what is currently in fashion. If baggy oversized jeans were in fashion when you met your ex, it might be time to find a new wardrobe.
Even though these tips may not be as easy to follow right now given your current emotional state, you will find that once you start following them your mood will improve. You’ll feel better about yourself and look better as well. The only possible outcome is that others (including your ex) will start noticing you and feel more attracted towards you as a result.
