Breakups are tough. Everyone tells you that there are other fish in the sea, you're better off, and you should just get over it, but it's not that easy. Every breakup is different, every reason is different, but there are lots of similarities, too. The pain, the regret, the hope – those are usually the same. It's just that nobody ever tells you the full truth about breakups.
1 Typically, the Love Doesn't Just Disappear
You can't just turn it on and off like a light switch, even if your ex was horrible and your breakup was messy.
2 And It's Possible to Love Someone and Hate Them at the Same Time
You'll probably feel a whole big mix of things after your breakup, in fact.
3 Certain Songs, Movies, and Books Will Hurt You Too Much for a While
It might be a while before you can listen to certain songs, watch certain things, and go to places that remind you of your ex.
4 Sometimes Venting Your Vitriol Really is the Only Way to Feel Better
Everybody always tells you to rise above it, and you might resist the temptation, but it's understandable if you don't.
5 You Might Want to Get Back with Your Ex … a Lot
If you really think it's a possibility, you might want to surround yourself with friends and family for a while, so you don't send any texts or make any calls you'll regret.
6 You Might Even Be Willing to Put Yourself in Some Really Painful Situations
For example, you might force a friendship with your ex just to keep them in your life, even though it hurts.
