How do you get over a heartbreak???
Don't mean to bring in negativity into this community but I'm seeking advice from y'all. My girlfriend of 5 years just broke up with me about a month and half ago and to say I'm utterly devastated is understatement. I feel like my world is shattered. I've known this girl since I was 15 and started dating around junior year of high school. We were both our first everything when it comes to love. Each-others first relationship and have both only been in this one relationship. We practically grew up together, same hometown, same friends, same hobbies, etc. Went from dating in high school to a strong long distance relationship for all of college. Every single aspect of my life had her incorporated into it vice versa. I can't think of very many memories that don't have her included. All my major life events she was there for. Every accomplishment, every failure, every challenge, she was there. I had it cemented in my mind that we were going to be in it for the long haul. That nothing could break us apart. However that's sadly not the case.
After both graduating in May, I moved to NYC for work and she moved to Seattle which is close to where she went to school. That's when things started feeling different. She moved to Seattle where a lot of her college friends and sorority sisters were located as well, while I moved to NYC where I practically knew no one and still don't know many people. I had a hard time adjusting and am still having a hard time adjusting while she had zero problems whatsoever with her transition. Everything that was a normal everyday routine, such as texting, calling, or snap-chatting started to fizzle out to the point where it bothered me a bit. I had brought it up a few times but things did not change. One morning I called her and asked her what was up. That led to an argument which ultimately ended in her saying that she couldn't give me what I wanted and that she can't be in the relationship anymore. A month had gone by with no contact and I reached out while we were both home for thanksgiving to discuss things. The conversation basically ended in her saying that we won't ever get back together.
So here I am at 22, severely heartbroken and devastated for the second time. I have let this heartbreak seep into other aspects of my life. It has negatively impacted my drive to do most everyday things like work, gym, and daily errands. Started seeing a therapist weekly however I can't seem to shake her from my mind. So I'm wondering if any of y'all have gone through something similar and what helped y'all along the way to get through it. Don't mean to be that guy just felt like I needed to air this out.
