Getting Over a Breakup
1. TALK TO WHOM YOU BROKE UP WITH.
This may seem silly, but it really helps. Tell that person about how you still feel about them. Talk about the best moments you both shared with each other. Tell how valuable you felt your time was with them and thank them for making you a part of their life. In the end, wish a hearty and truthful goodbye.
2. GET YOURSELF SOME TIME.
This does not mean you stop doing everything and watch sad, romantic movies while enjoying a tub of popcorn. No. Do the things you are supposed to do. Don't take time to "recover". It isn't a wound, it's a memory. Keep going, complete everything left undone, thanks to your heart's problems. Write, write more, read, read more, think, think nothing. Just do what you're meant to at that time and finish your work.
3. STOP ACTING AWKWARD.
Don't, repeat, don't take down your pictures from social media. Don't delete your texts. Don't use Drake lyrics as instagram captions. Don't talk shit about them now. Don't forget them, keep them as lessons. Just don't dramatise your life. If you see your now-ex, wave a hi, ask them how they are. Talk to them, say bye before you leave. Keep attending parties, keep going for movies. Don't pretend they don't exist. After all, they brought you some of your happiest smiles and best gifts. Don't believe that crap of 'oh we are exes, we can't be friends, ew'. That shit is dumb. Grow up, continue to talk to them when you have to. Simplify your own life.
