If you’re struggling to come to terms with a breakup then the 30 Day No Contact Rule is for your you. Coping with a breakup is never easy. All you want, is to be reunited with your ex. No matter how much support you have, dealing with the fallout of a breakup is a very lonely and traumatic experience. Sadly, even your closest family and friends will eventually tire of your tears and emotional meltdowns. You need to regain control of your life and, the sooner you do this, the sooner the pain will begin to subside.
It is perfectly natural to crave a reconciliation with your ex. We all want something, or someone, we cannot have. Many people use the no contact rule to get their ex back. Does it work? Yes, sometimes. Do relationships last? No, not always. The problem with feeling in such a vulnerable state is that you begin to idolize your ex. You forget their faults and annoying habits and place them on a pedestal. However, commonsense dictates that if you do not resolve the underlying problems that caused the breakup in the first place, then your relationship is doomed to fail. Therefore, I have to be perfectly honest and say that ‘no contact’ may not bring your ex back to you. Primarily, ‘no contact’ is a strategy to help you recover from a breakup and move forward with your life.
Using the no contact rule is also a useful tool to use if you want to escape a toxic or abusive relationship. Anyone who has ever dated a narcissist will understand how difficult it is to achieve closure from such a relationship.
