The 22 Phases Experienced with Every Break-up ...

Breaking up is really difficult, it's hard and there are so many emotions flying all over the place. I've been through my share of relationships and I've been through my share of breakups and below, I've outlined (in gifs!) the phases that all of us go through when it comes to break ups.

I am in phase 9 and my relationship was 3 years ago. I am so slow

Couldn't have said it better myself

I'm going through this ... The last 3 parts .. I cry everyday ...

Great post..

Ughhh I going through all the phases at the same time.....

I'm going through all of this exactly. I cry all the time and I just want it to stop at this point. But this makes me feel so much less alone. Thank you.

I've heard there was only about 12- this couldn't be more accurate, although I flicker back and forth between some ; but I feel much less guilty and alone now - thankyou!!

I thought i was the only one

THIS IS TOO RELATABLE. Lmao I thought I was bipolar

Phase 6 and 7 for me. Not half way through lol
