Has someone ever offered you the world, and then dumped you unceremoniously? If your ex has cheated on you, betrayed you, or even assaulted you mentally or emotionally, sitting in a corner of your room, shutting yourself from the rest of the world, is not the way you can get over it. It is so old school. It’s time you turned the tables: take your revenge by letting your ex know that you are stronger than what people think you are. Not sure how to go about it? Here's what you should do:

You should do it a lot more often now. Let the person know that you are having fun: if not directly, go the Facebook, Instagram or Twitter route. Your ex must see as many "happy photos" you can post, and these could include the ones you clicked while partying with friends, at the mall, or even at the movies. Make your 'status' message your biggest ally: something like “thank god, he/she dumped me. Life is so beautiful now,” will work bigger wonders than you can ever imagine.

Yes, it's time you had fun, not just to show off to your ex. And while you are at it, see if you can make plans with some mutual friends. Invite them (mutual ones specially) for a get together and don’t forget to show up. Socialize even more than before because it is the only way to show how your life has changed for the better now that you are single. Crazy selfies and "happy" status updates always work. You want your ex to know that you are having a blast in life.

Now that you’re not dating, you have all the right in the world to throw all the gifts you received from your ex or anything you possess that belongs to your ex. But you know what is going to blow them up? Selling their gifted stuff or belongings on a pony price with annoying captions. Find out a way your ex comes to know about it through a social networking site or a mutual friend. Pity you cannot see your partner's face the first time he'd come to know of it.

That’s the best thing you could do for yourself. What an ex usually expects after dumping you is to see you sob and sulk and that is something you won’t be doing to let your ex down and to regain your self confidence. Give yourself time and become successful so that your ex repents the decision of leaving you.
