Most often, breakups are messy. They leave you with so much pain, and they hinder you from thinking logically. You don’t know what to do next, feeling like you’re simply stuck in that moment of sadness and grief. Is it possible for one to heal faster? The answer is yes, and you can do it through a rebound relationship.
A Rebound Relationship Can Make You Feel Like Yourself Again
Logically, one might think that rebound relationships are a bad idea because you’d have to allow a certain amount of time for your heart to heal. However, science seems to disagree.
Research conducted by Brumbaugh & Fraley points out that engaging in a rebound relationship can have more benefits than we think. In their study, they found that people who engage in new relationships after a breakup are more confident about their desirability. In addition, the rebound relationship they engaged in helped them come to terms with the breakup with their former partner.
