Identify your wants and needs to break free from toxic relationship cycles. Keep a journal as a reminder of what you truly deserve.
Communicate your expectations to your partner. Seek support from a trusted friend to hold you accountable and avoid relapses.
Go cold turkey: Delete their contact, block them on social media, and remove reminders of them. It's tough but necessary for moving on.
. Stay strong: Don't give in to their attempts to contact you. Close the door firmly and prevent them from re-entering your life.
Embrace discomfort: Break free from fear of starting over and embrace the excitement of meeting new people and discovering yourself.
Change your mindset: First dates are positive opportunities for growth, and no relationship is instantly comfortable. Trust in your ability to navigate the process again.
Redirect anger: Instead of blaming yourself or your partner, use feelings of guilt and resentment to learn and grow from past choices.
Break the pattern: Recognize the mistakes that led to the on-again, off-again cycle and avoid repeating them in the future.
