Some people say that for every year you are in a relationship, it takes approximately half of that time to recover. In my opinion, it takes as long as you want it to. During a breakup, you go through a grieving process which is similar to a death of a loved one. If someone you loved as passed, you receive a tremendous amount of support from friends and family. However, if you are going through a divorce or a breakup, you may feel alone and quite isolated. Your friends sometimes do not know how to react. They may say to you – “Well, this person was not the right one for you. There are plenty of fish in the sea. You can do so much better!” Obviously, this is the last thing you want to while trying to recover from rejection.
