As a human being everyone has the freedom to choose with whom they have to spend their rest of the life so is your partner. If they choose to go, let them go gracefully because they are not meant for you. The relationship does not get spared by the duality of nature; your current partner may tear you down, but there would be someone else who builds you up. Ultimately, through breakup, wrong relationship lead to the right ones.

Life is unpredictable; it does not go according to the wishes, but it surely takes the person where they meant to go provided they outgrow the difficult phases of life that need to outgrow. When breakup happens, often it is meant to accept it so that you get over it early and smoothly. If you clearly visualize, after a breakup, whatever you have lost, you have also gained something else in proportion. Trying to control everything in life, keeps you away from the joy waiting in your life. So always keep in mind that where you do not have the control, it is better to accept what has happened and flow with life, not against it.

You cannot excel in your field by doing your job occasionally; you have to do it on a daily basis in an effective way. By keeping yourself busy with a fruitful activity, you at the same time distract your mind from the worst impact of the breakup and help you to overcome it a positive way. So discipline yourself to make every day count in your life.
4) RESPOND WITH DIGNITY
Situations of life is not in your control, but how do you respond to them is completely in your control. Do not have harsh feeling for your partner, even if you are in a bad relationship because of him and let the self-defeating thought such as fear, anger, regrets, frustration and of the same control your life. After all, your partner was a part of your life; you cannot spare yourself by having negative feelings for them. As long as you live with the memories of love and hate, you would not be able to move forward. Learn to forgive and forget so that you get over the breakup and look forward to what life has in store for you.
5) GIVE YOURSELF ANOTHER CHANCE
