Life | Break-ups Suck!


We've all been there at some point in our life, it's just happens. It's sort of like a right of passage into becoming a woman.

Well I've been going through a break-up my self recently and although I know it happens all the time and that "I'm still young and I'll find someone else", this break-up has really took it's toll on me. It's been a few months since it happened and even after all that time, I still wouldn't say that I'm 100% okay. 

But I know that it will take time before I'm fine and ready to even begin thinking about a new relationship so being to enter a stage where I'm getting "okay" with the situation. Does that make sense?

In an attempt to speed that process up I did a little bit of googling on ways to help get over a break-up and since I found that a few had helped me, I thought I would share them with you guys! Just in case like!

break up

1. Let it all out.
(I could have made a terrible Frozen quote but I held it in!) 
I found that venting out a lot of my frustration about my knobhead ex really helped me and made me feel a lot more calmer. Whether it's just screaming into a pillow, punching that pillow or even a good long cry, let it all go. Don't hold in your emotions!

2. Treat Yo' Self
I am a firm believer that there is always a reason to treat yourself and a break-up is pretty high up on that list. Whether it's that pair of shoes you've been eyeing for the past couple of weeks or just simply that new chocolate bar that you keep seeing advertised - Treat yourself! You are so worth it!

3. Listen to happy music only
We all have that one song that we classed as our song, I know I did. DELETE THEM ALL. No girl wants to be listening to her music on shuffle then have a mini break down because our romantic slow song came on. Just get rid of them! Popsugar has even helped us girls out and created a Best Breakup Song Playlist to help us get over our exes!

4. Friends & Family Time
There's nothing better than spending some quality time having a laugh with your friends and family. Make plans to see that friend you've not seen in months or go out for a family meal. These people love you and will do anything to see you smile again and you might just find that you've gone a few hours without thinking about your ex! Bonus!

5. Do Something For YOU!
The one thing that I loved to do when I first became single was driving. Even if I didn't have place in mind, it was nice to get out there and clear your mind. Some people would go for a walk or a run but driving for me is when I get my time to think!

6. No Contact
Normally a hard one but if it's really over, just avoid them. Don't put yourself through any extra stress and block his number and his profile on every social media account. That also means no cyber-stalking days after to see if he's as heartbroken as you!

7. Cleanse!
Get rid of all those reminders around you. That means photos on your phone, gifts he gave you and even any clothes ect that he might have left over at yours. Get rid! On the plus side, there might be some things you can sell on eBay - might as well get some money back from this break-up!

8. Don't Rush Things!
Don't feel like you have to rush into another relationship just because you feel lonely. Going back to number 4 but choose to go out with friends and family instead. Obviously there's no harm in a little flirting with the opposite sex, you're not a hermit after all, but just focus on time on yourself!

9. Love Yourself
The most important part of any breakup is to love yourself. No matter what happened whilst you were together or how your relationship ended or, that doesn't make you a bad person.

    1. Ha thanks a lot Pam :) That made me giggle! xo

  2. Heart breaks honestly suck big time!! I have gone through so many and it usually ends up going the same way - I get angry - then blame myself - in denial - then get thrown into meeting someone else - Not good though but yeah it hurts big time

    1. I know how you mean :( It really does suck! xo

  3. Thanks for sharing that playlist, I've found happy music to be a great help whilst dealing with my breakup. xx

    1. I'm glad to help :) Good music is definitely needed through a break-up! xo

  4. Break-ups are no fun, and I remember how stingy they are! :(
    I went through the most awful break-up ever years and years ago (thankfully!) and I can confirm one thing for sure - life gets better, and then one day you realize that you haven't even thought about that person for over a year haha. (Even though when you broke up, it felt as if the whole world collapsed).
    I think some break-ups are also especially sore because of the relationship we are involved in (my former one was extremely unhealthy, he was a total jerk and I was stupid - if to sum it up).
    On a bright side, then you meet someone and like this cheesy but amazing quote says, you realize why your previous relationships didn't work out.
    I've been dating my now husband for over 4 years aka happiest years of my life :)
