But breaking up and moving on with your life can sometimes be difficult.
It is not as easy as you might want it to be.
After being with your ex for a period of time, you are so used to having your ex in your life.
Sometimes you will be reminded of your ex when you hear a certain song, visit a certain place, when doing some things, etc.
All these memories might bring your mood down.
So to help you get through this period, you decide to spend more time with your friends.
It will be easier if you and your ex do not keep mutual friends.
But if you and your ex do have mutual friends that you see regularly, it might be more difficult.
These mutual friends might not be used to see you alone when you go out with them.
Some of them might try to persuade you to reconsider your decision and try to get you and your ex back together.
Tell your friend that you have made up your mind on the break up.
There will be friends who will understand and respect your decision.
There will also be some who will continue to try to persuade you.
When this happens you might have to stay away from those friends for a while less it sour the friendship.
Choose to go out with those friends that you are closet with and are supportive towards you.
Another things you might face if you and your ex have mutual friends is that you might run into your ex when going out with these mutual friends.
If you find it awkward to face your ex you can check with your friends before going out if your ex will be there.
Another option is to go out with your other friends that your ex are not close to.
One of the biggest difficulties you will face when you break up and decide to move on with your life is your parents.
Especially if your ex and your parents got along really well and your parents like your ex a lot.
They will tend to ask you questions out of concern on why you and your ex have broken up.
When this happens, tell you parents that you have made up your mind on the break up and moving on with your life.
After a while, your parents will understand and accept your decision.
Breaking up with an ex and moving on with life can be a difficult period of time.
You will need the support from people around you.
Thus choose people that you are close to and are supportive towards you to tide over this difficult period of time.
