Because, as Tina Belcher says, you are a "smart, strong, sensual woman."
Heartbreak is one of the worst pains imaginable. There’s nothing you can do to fix it, and it lasts for what seems like ages. You can’t ignore the pain, and there’s no over-the-counter medication to help you get over a breakup.
The truth about breakups is that they do hurt, but they’re a part of life. You have to kiss (and fall in love with) a few frogs to find your Prince Charming.
But here are a few ways to speed up the process of getting over your ex.
It is often the case that when you get into a new relationship, you lose a few friends. Remember what it was like to be a fun, single woman? Rekindle those friendships and start fresh.
Make friends with people around you and enjoy the time you spend with them. It’s hard not to think about your ex when you’re out with friends, but really get deep into the conversation. And don’t beat yourself up if you’re not in the mood to have fun.
Very often we stop working out and taking care of our bodies while we’re in a relationship. So much of our time and energy is consumed by the relationship that we forget to prioritize ourselves.
This is the perfect time for you to let off some steam and go for a run. Put on some tunes and block out those negative thoughts. Trust me, it works.
It may be awkward, but no one wants to see you thrive more than your mother does. Moms are here to tell it like it is. She will be on your side no matter what.
Your mom has gone through heartaches and breakups probably more times than you have, and if she can bounce back, so can you.
You are your mother’s daughter after all.
If your ex comes at you saying, “We should still be friends” then take a giant step back. Now is not the time to be forming a friendship. Instead, take some valuable time away from your ex.
Gaining alone time is hard while in a relationship, so when you’re single, be a little selfish and take a while to be alone with yourself. Distance is the perfect way to get over someone. Out of sight, out of mind really does work if you give it time.
So stop worrying about what he’s up to or what he’s doing and remain focused on yourself. The breakup healing process is hard for everyone and we all deal with it differently, but you got this.
Writing down your feelings has therapeutic effects on the brain. Buy yourself a cute journal and write down everything you’re feeling. It’s good to just let everything out, and the best part of writing it down is that your notebook wont judge you for it.
You can even write a letter to your ex, just don’t send it. Writing things down will give you a chance to be completely honest with yourself and how you’re feeling.
You are an independent woman who doesn’t need anyone but herself. Now go out, have a girls’ night and dance your worries away. You’ll bounce back from the breakup before you know it.
