|Photograph what you fear losing the most|
Which stage of a break up do you consider to be the toughest? Living in denial, accepting the fact or moving on? Besides dealing with the pain of losing someone you love, you have to face family and friends bombarding you with endless questions that you can’t find the answers to. We are no Aunt Agony, but we assure you that travelling is the best way to mend your broken heart.
After a break up, you learn to live by yourself again. All of a sudden, there’s nobody to send you cute good night texts, no one asks you what are your day-to-day plans or cares about what you had for dinner. How do you rediscover yourself? Here’s a step-by-step guide on the best way you can heal and bounce back from your break up!
|Mending a broken heart with alcohol|
Drink, drank, drunk. I believe everyone’s at least 18 this year and we’ve all been there, done that. The first step to moving forward is facing your vulnerabilities. Instead of being blinded by the pain in your heart, jio a few of your closest friends for a night out! The focus of this social gathering is not to numb your pain with alcohol, but to remember that you still have people who love you by your side.
Of course, we all know that drinking is an expensive habit in Singapore (uh, everything is expensive in Singapore). However, this is when you should take advantage of Japan‘s all-you-can-drink saké (Japanese rice wine) buffet! You can choose from more than 100 types of sakés and you can’t find on your next visit because they are seasonal items! A trip to Tokyo might be just what you need for a rapid recovery.
2. Grow by challenging your limits
|Do something crazy like skydiving!|
Moving on doesn’t mean forgetting your past mistakes. How do you learn from them and become a better person? In a relationship, we often become reliant on our partners and grow accustomed to a routine thus, wearing ourselves out. Ask yourself this: when was the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone?
Go on an impromptu sky diving trip in Australia! Conquer up to 14, 000 of altitude in Cairns, Queensland, relishing beautiful views of the Great Barrier Reef. Scream your worries with all your might – no one’s there to judge you! After daring yourself, you’ll never tell yourself, “I can’t do it” again. After you’ve experienced 60 seconds of free falling for up to 220km/hr, what’s there left for you to fear in this world?
3. The calm after the storm
|Take some time to reflect and rediscover yourself|
After recharging, it’s time to rediscover yourself and put the pieces of your life back together. Pamper yourself with a quiet trip away of the hustle and bustle of Singapore life. A slower pace of life might just be what you need to lose and find yourself again. Take a trip around Hanoi to discover the hidden gems that you might never notice travelling with a partner.
4. Begin again
|Get to know more people and start afresh!|
As Taylor Swift so smoothly puts it, “I’ve been spending the last eight months thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end but on a Wednesday in a cafe I watched it begin again.” While you don’t necessary have to begin dating dating again so quickly, it’s nice to put yourself out there and know more people. Travelling alone gives you the opportunity to converse with strangers and get to know another culture better!
Alternatively, if you like to be surrounded by people, join one of the biggest and most popular beach party in the world! You may have been to Thailand numerous times but nothing beats Koh Samui’s full moon parties. Surrounded by the vibrant nightlife and high-spirited party goers, you’ll forget your heartbreak in no time. Book now and we’ll see you there next Saturday!
Wherever you are in the world, remember that you are never alone because your family and friends will always love and support you. The world’s your oyster and one of these days, you’ll surely find someone who loves you right.
