After the Break-up: 3 Signs that you're ready to move on

Updated: Jan 10, 2020

I can't think of anyone in America who was happy to hear about Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan getting a divorce. Well... maybe his new girlfriend... and her new boyfriend. Hmm...

And just 5 months after ending their 9 year marriage!!

I don't know about you, but I personally wasn't ready for them to start dating so soon. I mean, I'm not even over the break-up... how can they be?!

It made me wonder...

How do we know when we are truly ready to move on after a major break-up??

So many people, especially celebrities (yeah I said it), get this part wrong. This explains how you can be with the right person and your relationship still go horribly wrong.

The fantasy we have about love is that it's enough all on its own. It's passionate... it literally pulls us in... but it's also work.

Every relationship you start will be a combination of what you've been through in your past relationships and what you're willing to learn in your new one.

We'll never enter any new relationship fully equipped to make it work. There are things we'll have to learn along the way; there's no way around it.

BUT! Here's a few signs that you're ready to move on in a healthy way:

1. You don't hate your ex.

If your blood boils every time you think about your ex, you aren't ready to move on. The best thing you can do for your next Boo is forgive your last one. They don't want to feel like they have to pay for the mistakes of your last relationship and they shouldn't have to.
