Breaking up is never easy. It's easy to get into a funk and wind up making the same mistakes in future relationships. However, it's clear you're ready to end any cycles and recover from this breakup smarter and emotionally healthier.

On the first day of dealing with a breakup, the best thing you can do is to demand nothing of yourself, or at least nothing other than tasks you absolutely must do, like going to work and paying bills. Allow yourself the time to express your emotions so you can begin to come to grips with breaking up. Cancel negotiable plans and let your friends and family know you'll be taking a few days for yourself.
DID YOU KNOW? According to a 2006 National Breakup Survey, the two primary reasons for a breakup are not having a shared view of the future with a partner (48%) and feeling unfulfilled or in a rut (41%).
