4 Methods to Handle a Breakup Well (as told by gif)

So as you’ve might have gleamed from posts this last two weeks or so, I’m going through bit of a rough patch in my love life. I’d like to say that I normally don’t respond this poorly to a break up, but in reality, all break ups are different and can be handled differently. I.E.:

life sucks

As a reminder to myself, as well as maybe some ideas for you to try, here are my 4 Methods to Handle a Break-Up Well (as told by gif, of course.)

1. When you first wake up, it takes a few seconds to remember why you have this sense of foreboding. I’ve trained my morning process to immediately start by saying ,”no” to the negative thoughts that will try to come racing into my head. Just keep repeating NO, NO, NO until you can find a proper distraction. (the app 9gag is one of my favorites.)

2. Dates, dates, and more dates. Its easier to move on when you know you have plenty of options. Some times you might feel like, “no one wants to date me” or “I don’t know anyone” then resort to facebook creeping friends you don’t know well enough (that are single, duh). Or tinder, the “hot new app” for finding singles in your area. (this is a judge free zone, I remind you.) Last resort: repeat dates from guys/gals that didn’t work out before. Second chance, ya know? Just keep your self occupied!

3. This might be a given, but I’ll say it anyway. Distance yourself, or even better, cut yourself off from the person you’re getting over. Its 9 trillion times easier to move on when you don’t have a text message you’re waiting on, or over-analyzing every single detail about their behavior or words.

4. Lastly, just simply know its going to get easier. Because it does, I swear to you on all that is holy, it will get easier if you make sure you’re treating it in a healthy way. A wound wont heal if you don’t keep it clean, mind you. Eventually:

 no power

I really hated using only 4 methods (such an odd number) but I couldn’t think of fifth worth sharing, and this post is getting long enough as it is. Everyone, have a good night, and if you happen to know a revolutionizing method to handle a break up that I don’t know, for god’s sake post. </3
