How To Reinvent Yourself After a Breakup

In life, there are many events that damage our mental health and well-being leaving us feeling like a wounded animal for a time. One of those inevitable events is a heart shattering breakup. No matter what stage in your life they occur, breakups can be a painful thing to recover from. You may be feeling that you will never feel whole again after a rough split or divorce, and if so, take a peek at out my guide on how to reinvent yourself after a breakup.

Reinvent Your Look, Reinvent Yourself

While this may seem superficial to look towards your appearance, it’s often one of easiest things you can do to boost your confidence after a break up. After a breakup, it’s not uncommon for you to feel a need for change. You may wish to get a new cut or update your makeup—a new lipstick is always nice. You may wish to micro blade your eyebrows or sport some new lashes. And, one area that’ll likely be calling for something new is your wardrobe. For the ultimate boost of confidence, explore a few fun fashion trends to reinvent your look.

If you’re tired of your old items, switch them out for something entirely new. Rather than wearing your favorite pair of mom jeans, throw on different styles of denim, such as ripped and distorted jeans or a new denim jacket. Look for a holiday dress or a new loungewear set. Or, better yet, search for some sexy new piece of lingerie that makes you feel good.

These are just a few examples of how you can reinvent your look, but there are countless other ways. For example, if you don’t typically wear accessories, consider adding earrings, necklaces or new eye glasses to your wardrobe.

Reflect on Your Long-Term Goals and Purpose

As is often the case, we let something go of ourselves to meet the demands of even the most healthy of relationships. Perhaps you are realizing that your personal goals suffered and you’ve lost your feeling of purpose? You’ll never regret taking this time to get to know yourself—to rediscover who you are on your own outside of relationship. You may wish to take a look at my ultimate reinvention course and workbook here. If you take this time to reflect on goals you want to accomplish, your self awareness grows and you will not only feel satisfied with who you are but you’re likely to attract your next best relationship that truly matches you.

Use your breakup as the perfect excuse to selfishly indulge in your many passions and callings. I guarantee there are passions you have put on hold that are fun ways to fill the gap of a break up.

Spend Time With Those Who Make You Happy

Loved ones bring out the best in us. To reinvent yourself and the spaces you now have in your schedule, spend time with those who make you the happiest. Being around positive energy will get you out of a slump and inspire you to become a better version of yourself.

With the ongoing pandemic, you can still spend quality time with your closest friends and family. Simply give them a call or set up a video chat. Or, go on a social distance walk or hike.

Try New Things to Reinvent Yourself
