5. Be Kind to Yourself

Our inner critic has the tendency to be extremely mean and bully our self when we are down and out, criticising, blaming and being angry.

This is the worst time to start beating yourself up emotionally about the break up and making yourself take all the blame for it, when it was both of you that contributed. Think of what you would say and do if your best friend asked you about the best ways to bounce back from her break up – if you are not treating yourself as if you were your own friend, then you are going to hurt more.

Wish this was posted around 2 months ago when I was starving myself out of grief.
Now that I've put on 4kgs in 3 weeks since the break up... I can see exercise would have been a better outlet than food!!

Doctor who!!!!!!!!!!!
This goes to -Allie's- comment. If this sounds unrealistic, then either A. You've never been in love, or B. You're just in denial. Everything listed I believe are positive and realistic ways in coping...
Why the doctor who picture? Love it XD
Perfect 👌👍
