Can I just say…”ughhhh”.
Breakups suck even when you’re the one doing the breaking up…even more so when you’re not.
Girl if you loved him, like really loved him, this shit is going to hurt, there’s no getting around it.
For all the ways I’ve coped after a breakup (there have been some major disasters) I can share with you my top tips in hopes that something might spark within you and lessen the hurt.
Things have changed with all the hype over not eating icecream on the couch and crying your eyes out while watching He’s Just Not That Into You… choosing instead to workout, buy cute clothes and “ruin his life”. While that does sound kind of fun, in the worst way possible.
Depending on your age chances are you’ve already had your first breakup and have uttered the classic words “I can’t live without him”.
Then, 6 months later (maybe less, maybe more) you realize you most definitely can and as a matter of fact you are living without him.
In all of my relationships I’ve looked back and come to terms with the fact that I stayed much too long. In hindsight a breakup can even be a blessing.
When I’m about to break up with someone or have had my heart crushed (knock on wood baby) I look back at my previous breakups.
Yes, they hurt like hell.
Yes, I thought I was dying.
Yes, I watched romantic comedies.
Yes, I ate way too much chocolate.
You know what else happened?
I got through it.
I realized what an asshat the guy actually was.
I honestly couldn’t believe I chose to date him in the first place.
I started doing more with friends, family, hobbies and business.
I became happier, more focused… and thinner.
I remembered my value.
Specific top tips?
Block his number…at least for the first 72 hours. (come on, WE all know how hard this is)
Drink lots of water. (beautiful hydrated skin is a must, especially now)
Buy the cute clothes & look damn fine. (I know I said revenge was the worst, but it feel soo good)
Tell yourself “I love you”
Get out with family & friends
Start a new project
Allow yourself to cry, wipe your tears, remember you’re a badass and that good things are coming your way.
Oh.. and shoot me a message (or comment below) on Instagram or Snapchat and we will talk you through this together girl!
