If you are a teen, young adult, person, chances are you’ve been through at least one breakup. There’s also a chance you’ve been through a bad one whether you’re the dumper or the one being dumped. It sucks either way.
Think about the last time you either lost a tooth or had a sore spot in your mouth. Notice how for the first few days, you can’t stop messing with it? Now after a week or so, you stop messing it with constantly & when you do it starts to go away? That’s how a breakup kinda works too.
In this post I will go over my tips on dealing with it & how to be okay.
How To Begin The Healing Process:
Allow yourself some time to grieve. Spend a day or two just watching sappy rom-coms, listening to sad songs, eating crappy foods, crying, etc. Then after those couple days, that’s when you slowly pick yourself up, dry your tears & put down the box of Golden Oreos.
Exercise! Just make sure you don’t over do it. Never underestimate the effects a good cardio or weightlifting can do on the mind and obviously body. Not only will you feel good but you’ll look good too. Turn on some feel good jams & dance in your bedroom while getting ready for work. (one of my favorites)
Change Up Your Look: This doesn’t have to be permanent but, play around with your makeup, cut your hair (you prob need a trim anyway), Curl your hair, try that new eyeshadow you’ve been dying to get your hands on. Buy new makeup. Buy some new clothes that make you feel HOT.
Surround Yourself With (Self)Love: Make more of an effort to meet up with your girlfriends (You’ve prob blown them off since you’ve had an SO), call up an old friend, Have lunch with your grandparents, take yourself to see a play. Get some Starbucks on your way to work. Put on a sheet mask & glow the f up. 🙂
DO NOT STALK THEM ON SOCIAL MEDIA!!!!: If you take one tip from this post let it be this one! My friend Jess swears by this. As a matter of fact, DELETE them. That way you’re not tempted to creep and that way they can’t try to hit you up or see you. Don’t allow them the opportunity to haunt you like that. Just an all around nope. Don’t creep on them after you delete them either. (I’m guilty of this)
Now these are just a few of my favorite tips on how I personally deal with breakups, we all have our own methods. It’s important to allow yourself time to get over it. Don’t rush your process. Trust me when I say, you WILL be okay soon enough. It may not seem like it now, but you will be. ❤ I mean sure, you might still think about them from time to time, but the thoughts will be further & further apart. Remember, nostalgia is a filthy liar. There’s a reason you guys broke up.So remember those reasons. ❤
I hope these helped! If you have your own tips, I would love to hear them as well. I’m working on a breakup playlist & then a feel good one as well so check back for those. 🙂
