How To Get Over A Breakup
Ahh, it feels soooo good to be back! Okay, let’s talk mom jeans…I was scared for a very long time that I just didn’t have the body for them…I tend to have ‘dancer legs’ and I felt that you had to be SKINNAY to pull them off, BUT I still decided to try because I wanna be that cute mom jean girl and I am thinking it worked out prettttty well! I love how this outfit turned out! I actually cut the bottoms of these jeans off myself, I just couldn’t find any that I really loved completely so I thrifted these and put ’em under the knife!
Also, I really love red and I love that it’s so in this fall. I was talking to my mom today and she was laughing at me because when I was younger I hated red, like with a passion, and now I can’t get enough. (I honestly think it all started with my prom dress…)
NOW LET’S TALK BREAKUPS
Let me be honest….someone requested I write this a lonnnnng time ago and I was like wtffffffff, I CANNOT. Number one, that is like pretty personal, right? And number two, who is my dramatic ass to say ANYTHING…. but lo and behold, the more I told myself no, the more I thought about it so here is my dramatic ass writing this post.
So, let’s see: How To Get Over A Breakup…
I don’t know. You just kinda do. But, to me there are a few things that kind of get the kettle hot…
- You should probably cry….: I’ve tried the whole “I am like sooooo fine and like instantly over it, like that didn’t hurt at all” thing and I was a liar, I suppressed those feelings until my lake of suppressed feelings overflowed and I cried in front of someone I didn’t want to cry in front of and didn’t stop for probably the next 24 hours. Yikes. So, turn on that sad playlist and like get it over with. Oh, and talk about it all. The good, the bad and the ugly.
- Don’t buy a ticket for the rebound train *toot toot*: I’m not saying don’t put yourself back out there, because being around other people does help a ton, but the rebound thing? Nah. I’ve done it (yikes 2.0) Story: I thought I was cooler than my RG (rebound guy) and ole RG got rid of ME. LOL…
- The GloUp thing is fine: Honestly, I think the post breakup gloup is pretty great, just don’t get carried away. It’s nice to have a place to put your pent up emotions (working out, cooking healthy meals, shopping!) just don’t get obsessive. Get hot, post selfies. It’ll make you feel waaaaay better than sitting in bed.
- Get away from the ex: it is very difficult to heal when you keep yourself immersed in the same situation that you were in. You don’t have to be mean, but being nice is different than remaining friends. I think it’s almost impossible to heal in that sort of environment. Send them light and love, but get out.
- Create new goals: I think one of the hardest parts of breaking up with someone is trying to forget all of the plans you had with them for y’all’s future together…like that SUCKS. And I think that one of the few things that helps is creating new goals to work towards for YOUR future.
- Remind yourself that if you could love the wrong person this much, the right person will be so much better: enough said.
