Everyone gets over an ex differently. It depends on how you process pain and sadness, the nature and length of your relationship, and what ended it in the first place, or any number of other things. Still, no matter what, there are a few things you have to do for yourself. It may take a while before you feel like doing them, but seriously, they'll help.
You really are. This could be the best thing that ever happened to you.
Wallowing is essential. You're entitled to a little self-pity.
Go out with your friends. Belt out your favorite song as you drive down the highway. Dance naked around your house. Whatevs.
I know, everyone else tells you to rise above and be the better person. I believe I have actually given that advice before myself. Still, sometimes you have to. Just do it … with good judgment, let's say.
You need a sad one and a happy, upbeat one. Perhaps an angry one, too.
Don't. It will just lead to emotional manipulation and other bad things.
You're worth it. Listen to Yang. Always listen to Yang.
I'm not even going to say anything about stalking. I know you feel like you'll miss a lot if you stop following your ex on social media, and yeah, you will, but if you really want to get over this, just stalk the public stuff.
See? This is the purpose of unfriending your ex.
Maybe even with someone who's not your usual type.
Hey. Sometimes they help.
A little at a time … or a lot. Whatever works for you.
If you can't own it, you can't get over it.
Seriously. Crying can often be just the release you need.
Unless your ex is seriously The One, of course. But if you're really trying to get over her or him, just don't do it.
They'll protect you. Right now you need some protection.
Not yours. You've still got you. You're the clear winner in this situation.
