I hate to admit it but I’m a hopeless romantic. I love love but heartbreak is a thing that happens when things don’t work out. I’m part of Dani Austin’s Facebook group, The Sassy Club and I was surprised at how many girls asked how to get over a heartbreak. Having been there and seeing tips other girls gave, everyone more or less processes things the same way. So I wanted to share my tips on how to get over a heartbreak because heartbreak sucks and all the advice is better than no advice.
Stages of Grief are a Real Thing
If you go through the stages of grief, it’s okay! Some people don’t just get over it and move on. Don’t listen to people either when they tell you to just let it go and move on because it’s hard. Everyone deals with things differently. The stages of grief happen even when you don’t think they do. Just handle them as they come.
If you met me in person then you know I’m the type of person that milks a situation. If I’m sick, you will know it. When going to heartbreak you feel miserable. Treat yourself. Eat ice cream, buy something you’ve been wanting, or rewatch your favorite show. Do whatever makes you feel better, you’re allowed to.
Distraction is the name of the game. If you spend too much just sitting and thinking about it, it will just get sadder. Start a new hobby or hang out with friends. Do something that is consistent and will keep you busy.
It’s Going to Be Okay, It Just Takes Time
In the words of my favorite band Lany, “Everyday I let go just a little bit more. In the end I’m gonna be alright.” Don’t expect to get over it right away and if you do, that’s awesome. But things take time. Don’t see the other person and see if they moved on faster. Focus on you and deal with it as it’s happening. One day you’re going to be fine.
