How long does it take for our head and our heart to heal after a couple breakup ? When will we be ready to fall in love again? Without a doubt, every relationship and every person is different and there are many who bet on one nail to remove another nail and others who need a time of self-knowledge and healing before starting a new relationship.
A new relationship after the breakup
When one fingernail removes another fingernail, it may work, but it may not work. Many times we think we’ve met someone new who gives us everything our old partner couldn’t. And we quickly embark on a new relationship in which often what we love is more the fact that we don’t have to consider being alone and all that it can mean to miss the life of a couple, than what this new love can offer us emotionally.
For this reason, our psychologists always recommend before starting a new relationship: to be emotionally prepared.
How do you know if you are ready for a new relationship?
Here, we’ll walk you through some of the signs that tell you that you’re ready to open up again to find love:
1. There is no resentment or pain
If deep down you are looking for revenge on your ex-partner or if you feel hatred towards this person for everything that happened, it is very likely that you are still grieving this relationship. If, on the contrary, you are indifferent and even happy that your ex-partner can be with someone else, then your pain has healed.
2. You enjoyed your single life
Although not everyone is able to enjoy solitude and celibacy, it is important to learn to know each other, to love each other and to open our horizons at this stage to see what we want in our life and try new things.
3. You know what you want
Your emotional maturity has evolved, your self-esteem is much higher, and time has allowed you to understand what you want in your life and in your relationships.
4. You have stopped comparing
Maybe a new person has appeared in your life with great positives that gives you a new illusion. If you don’t compare him to your ex, you’re ready to move on.
5. You are confident again
The relationship breakups that usually cause the most damage are those where the trust between the two parties is broken. When you can trust and feel safe in front of another person, you were able to work it out.
If you think any of these signs may be difficult for you to overcome, you can always turn to our psychologists to heal your wounds and move on. Be happy and fall in love if you wish! Don’t let anyone clip your wings!
