lead to depression and you doubting your self-worth. This can especially be the case if you’ve just broken up with someone or left a relationship unhappy.

The first order of business is to take some time to yourself after coming out of a relationship. This can help you get your thoughts in order and clear your head. Try to focus on the positive aspects of your character to get back on your feet. Confidence and self-worth is an important factor during this stage, make sure to grasp the opportunity in front of you.

After you’ve collected yourself, take some time to close the chapter on your past relationship, as it were. You can accomplish this by using a pro and con sheet to recap what about the relationship didn’t work. This step helps you realize that you have self-worth and that there’s a good reason why the relationship didn’t work out.

Often times people beat themselves up after a messy breakup. This can manifest in mental and physical ways to punish yourself or beat yourself up for flaws that you perceived on your own. Realize that these doubts are planted in your head and not real, and understand that you deserve love and respect. Stop beating yourself up over possible reasons behind the breakup and instead move forward.

If you are still having problems with your confidence and loving yourself, don’t be afraid to lean on your circle of family and friends. Being surrounded by people who love you and appreciate who you are can help you see what you are missing. Speaking to your friends and family helps you see the positives about yourself and feel better about who you are as a person.

Breaking up is always a hard thing to do, but try not to rush into another relationship if you have confidence issues or cannot love yourself. If you don’t have a good measure of self-worth or cannot love yourself, you aren’t going to be able to love another or receive love. This is why it’s important to use these steps to build a good base of self-love so that you can move on with your life.

    I learned loving myself after surviving an abusive relationship. I realized that I was holding someone I don't deserve from the start. Letting go was hard but when I realized how powerful I became, I'm now proud of myself. From then on, I promised myself never to be broken again and love myself more.

    It is extremely important to love yourself after a relationship! If you have low self-worth, you definitely risk becoming more of a target for toxic, nasty people. Love yourself first and foremost. While relationships with other people can come and go, the relationship you have with yourself is one that will always be with you.
