They say home is where the heart is. But what if love doesn’t live here anymore? If you and your ex were sharing your space, there can be much more to the break up than it initially seems. He is out of your life, your heart and your space now, but living in the house you spent so many memories together in can be difficult.
Here’s how you can spruce up your space to welcome a new life (yours):
- Chances are, he has taken along all his things including things that he bought for the home for both of you to use. Get everything you need to live a comfortable and functional life to the least. Get the repairs done, get the linens you had set your heart on and get the sofa you are most comfortable in but didn’t buy because ‘he’ wasn’t interested in it.
- Purge everything that reminds you of your time together (and causes pain now). Your wedding picture frames, holiday souvenirs and the proposal gifts. Rid them. You don’t have to keep seeing them and make it difficult for you to move on.
- Decorate your place and throw a great break up party. Friends, cocktails and laughter is the perfect recipe to forget painful times.
Now go, get a life that is ‘yours’.
