Break ups are the worst!! Maybe you should go burn things or use the Rachel McAdams Program.
♡♥♡SAD GIRLS GUIDE TO BREAK UPS♡♥♡
FEEL ALL OF THE FEELINGS: This honestly is one of the biggest points of sad girls guide in general. You are allowed to feel what you feel when you feel it. If you want to cry and be sad, then cry and be sad girl. And if you want to yell and be mad – then girl you know you can yell and be mad. You should never ‘try to put on a happy face’ when you are bummed out, because when you suppress your feelings they just end up blowing up like a 5th grade volcano at a science fair that you accidentally put too much baking soda into – A BIG OL MESS YA’LL.
Seriously, DESTROY something: Now I’m totally known for being the absolute most dramatic person all of the time, and someone has even suggested that I write a Sad Girls Guide to ‘Throwing a Fit’ – but seriously, throw a fit. In the privacy of your own home, don’t do it in public because oh god could you imagine. Break a plate or something, get all those feelings out because it feels so good. One time I burned vinyl over a dude – I’m dead serious. Also, if you’re gonna ruin something somebody you dated got you or like a shirt or like their bands record or anything – pick one thing and ruin it then put the rest in your boyfriend box, oh you dont have one of those?? Start one. There’s an episode of gilmore girls about this when rory breaks up with dean but I couldnt find it on youtube to link u.
VENT then SHUT UP:After a break up everybody wants to know what happened at first. Use that time to vent. Tell your friends, your mom, your live journal all about it. It feels GOOD to do this at first and also helps you sort things out. You are even allowed some subtweeting. However if you go that route – expect to have the other person partake in that as well. So maybe limit that. There does come a point, and usually sooner than you expect, when your friends are totally sick of hearing about your broken heart. When you feel like your friends aren’t listening or are changing the subject and especially when they are like LOL SHUT UP. LISTEN TO THEM.
SAVING THINGS IS FOR FIREMEN, NOT FOR HEARTBROKEN GIRLS:I am honestly the queen of overthinking, second guessing, and attempting to ‘salvage’ things that are already over. Even if there is a chance of getting back together, you totally ruin that by trying to fix things to soon. GIVE IT TIME. One time I locked my phone in a jewelry box and put it on top of my fridge so that I would not make any text messages or phone calls to the guy who broke my heart. If it’s gonna come back around, it will but oh my god can you just relax for a minute and mourn?
