Remember These Things When You Break Up

Break Up

If you go through a breakup and you are struggling to be happy, here are some things you need to remember about the breakup:

  • You had good reasons to break up. There were lots of fights and tears.
  • The reasons are still there even if you miss them. Don’t forget the bad things that happened.
  • Feeling bad is hard but you need to embrace your feelings and let them flow.
  • Feel free to go out and drink for a week. Do whatever you can to feel good for a while.
  • Eat some unhealthy foods like ice cream and chips.
  • Tears will come, allow yourself to be sad and to heal.
  • It is okay to cry even when you are in public. Go out with friends so that you can cry to them and feel better.
  • If they dumped you, they didn’t deserve you. Find someone that wants to be with you.
  • If you dumped them, don’t forget that breakups are hard no matter who ends it.
  • Don’t want to get back together with them. You broke up for a reason, move on.
  • Even if your family and friends loved him, you are going to get over him and they have too as well.
  • Being single is fun and you can do all kinds of new things.
  • Going out on the rebound can distract you and be fun, but it can make you feel even worse.

  • Be sure that you are not boring and go out with your friends.
  • Therapy is not a bad thing and will not make you a bad person.
  • The sadness will fade as time goes on, even though it doesn’t feel like it.
  • Stop looking at their social media and move on. You do not need to know what they are doing, who they are dating and what their family is doing.
  • If your ex starts dating someone, don’t compare yourself to them. You are the best you can be, and they are not you.
  • You can go outside in sweatpants if you want to.
  • Don’t let people control what emotions that you have.
  • Be your own self. If you are sad, be sad.

  • Remember to be the best that you can be and show the world that you are strong and that you are brave.
  • The feelings that you are having right now will eventually fade and your life will feel better, and you will be happy again.
