Post Breakup

So, you’ve broken up with your boyfriend. Have you begun moving on yet? It’s hard to move on and get back to normalcy, but it’s not impossible. However, if you’re looking for a few things to use as guidelines of things you shouldn’t be doing during this time, we’ve got you covered.

  1. Don’t be friends – My friend always tells me that Men and Women cannot be just friends, and for the most part she’s correct. You cannot. Especially if the man that you’re trying to befriend is your ex-boyfriend. It just sounds wrong, doesn’t it?
  2. Do not seek revenge – Do not do irrational things such as keying his car, destroying his things, or sabotaging his life in general. Forgive, forget, and move on. It’s harder than it sounds, but it makes you the bigger person for humbly walking away from something that you absolutely do not deserve. You know what you deserve.
  3. Do not communicate – You are used to your daily habits that were formed with your ex, and that creates a void now that the two of you are apart. Resist your first instinct and slowly readapt to the single life. (Spoiler: It’s awesome.)
  4. Do not online stalk your ex – This isn’t a healthy way of letting go. It only makes his face fresher in your mind than it was to begin with. It’s tempting to check and see if he’s more miserable than you, but what if you check and he’s having loads of fun and living an awesome, new life? Don’t do it.
  5. Do not lose hope – Every breakup happens for a reason. Remember this when you’re feeling like you will never find someone. You will, it just wasn’t him.

Breaking up is hard to do, but it has to be done if things aren’t working out. Just remember that it’s all a part of a bigger plan. You will end up where you are meant to be soon enough.
