I think for many people who are in serious relationships or have recently entered a relationship with someone they’ve really fallen for, the idea of suddenly ending that relationship is terrifying.

However, as scary as it is, sometimes people will break up with you or dump you seemingly out of the blue.

I know people who feel like their relationship ended for no reason, and their breakups totally blindsided them, and I’ve seen the trauma it can cause. However, it’s important not to let the pain from an unexpected breakup keep you down for long.

If this has recently happened to you or you want to be prepared for what to do after getting dumped with no warning, here are some tips for moving on and getting closure.

Allow yourself to grieve

This is usually the first step in any of our breakup advice articles because it’s important for all kinds of breakups. Allow yourself a few days or even weeks to feel everything you need to feel.

Cry whenever you have to, vent to your friends, journal, and do whatever you have to do to acknowledge and release your pain. If you try to bottle it up and act like everything is fine, you’ll be more likely to fall apart.

Snap out of it!

Once you’ve done a lot of grieving and allowed yourself to be down and sad, it’s time to snap out of it. There has to come a day or week when you decide it’s time to get out of bed or off the couch and get back to living your life.
