No contact is vital
If you are in the process of trying to get over an ex, the no contact rule is vital. This means that you do not talk to them, see them, or engage with them in any way for a determined period of time. The no contact rule helps you to detox from the relationship, and also gives you time to work on yourself.
What is no contact?
The period of time after you break up with a partner is often referred to as the “no contact” period. During this time, it’s important to refrain from any contact with your ex — no phone calls, no text messages, no running into them at the supermarket. Even if you still have feelings for them, the no contact period is a critical time for you to work on yourself and heal from the breakup.
The importance of no contact
The period of no contact is vital for you to be able to move on from your ex and heal properly. It allows you to break the cycle of abuse, and start to see yourself in a more positive light. No contact also allows you time to work on any issues that may have contributed to the break-up, such as low self-esteem or Codependency.
How to deal with work
If you work with your ex, you may have to see them every day. This can be really hard, especially if you are trying to avoid them. The best thing to do is to be cordial and professional. Do not engage in any personal conversations, and try to keep your interactions to a minimum. If you have to communicate, do so through email or text.
What to do if you work with your ex
If you have to see your ex every day at work, it can be torture. You may find yourself obsessing over what they’re doing, who they’re talking to, and what they’re thinking. You may even feel like you’re going crazy!
The good news is that there are some things you can do to make the situation more bearable. Here are a few tips:
- Avoid them as much as possible. If you can’t avoid them completely, try to keep your interactions to a minimum.
- Keep your conversations short and to the point. Don’t get drawn into long conversations about things that are irrelevant to work.
- Be polite but distant. Be cordial when you have to talk to them, but don’t go out of your way to be friendly.
- Focus on your own work. Make sure you’re concentrating on your own job and not letting their presence distract you.
- Stay positive. It’s important to stay positive and focus on the fact that this situation is only temporary.
How to deal with events during no contact
Even if your interactions with your ex have been cordial and you have both agreed to remain friends, you may find yourself in a difficult situation if you are invited to the same event. If the event is something that you would normally attend together, such as a friend’s wedding, it can be even more difficult. You may feel pressure to attend the event to support your friend, but you may also feel like it would be painful to see your ex.
You can definitely handle work and events during no contact, but there are a few things you should keep in mind. First and foremost, avoid any contact with your ex if possible. If you have to see them, be cordial and professional but try to keep the conversation brief and focused on work-related matters. Secondly, try to stay busy and social during this time so you don’t dwell on your breakup. Attend work functions and social gatherings, and keep up with your hobbies and interests. This will help the time pass more quickly and make it easier to stick to your no contact resolution.
