If I could give you a hug I would, but all that I can do right now is let you know that even though it’s going to take some time – and plenty of tears – you will get through this, and one day the hurt will stop. Until then, here is my guide to getting over a breakup with as little regretful text messages as possible.
Until next time,
Love, Angela xx
Do you reaaaally want to see Billy off on a boys night out for his birthday with a lady by his side? No. Not only do you not want that, you sure as heck don’t need to see that either! After a week or so from the breakup cut him off on social media, delete the texts and delete the pictures. It will only stir up emotion and a shit ton of what if’s. Going through a heartbreak is hard enough as it is, you definitely don’t want to come across something that’s just going to make what feels like the worst time ever even worse.
Girl, let yourself be sad. Let yourself cry until you can’t cry anymore.
This is a huge part of your life that has come to an end, and it is normal to mourn the happy and loving memories of your relationship, after all, not all of it was bad. Put on Sex & The City, get yourself a tub of ice-cream and let yourself mourn over every little detail and moment of your relationship that you need to. Just try not to let yourself wallow in sadness for too long. Give yourself a week, two at the very most and then start taking a break from the depressing songs and tragic movies.
Once you have cried all you can and listened to so much Adele that you have practically changed nationality, think of the reasons why this needed to happen and why it could be a positive change. Trust me, it might have seemed absolutely impossible to think of some while you were grieving, but there are reasons why this can and will be for the best and the first step to moving onwards and upwards is acceptance.
Go Out and distract yourself!
Call your girlfriends, get a haircut and go and distract yourself! whether it’s by going out to a trendy bar in a fine dress or doing something as PG rated as strawberry picking at the local field, getting out and distracting yourself is going to save your life! It’ll be hard to start out with, maybe there’s an initial feeling of guilt or maybe it’ll be strange doing something you used to do with your ex with someone else, but trust meeeee! before you know it you won’t even have thought about the heartbreak in a while! That’s when you know its time to move on to step 5.
Your life is a whole new adventure and now you will be ready and excited to start fresh as the new YOU! The world is your oyster, my love.
