How to Recover After Ending a Toxic Relationship

  • Grieve the loss (cry, be angry, be sad)

  • Practice self-compassion (it was not your fault) 

  • Engage in radical self-care (daily and often) 

  • Make a list affirming who you are (I am...)

  • Process what you learned about yourself as a result of the toxic relationship

  • Determine how you would like to show up in present and future relationships 

  • Forgive yourself for the things you allowed

  • Forgive yourself for not leaving sooner
