Broken-hearted No No’s
Listen, breakups aren’t easy, no matter if you are the heartbreaker or the heartbroken. But there is ONE thing that is easy about recovering from a breakup – not being a psycho. (Insert that image you wish you could forget of Britney Spears shaving her head) Trust me, a desperate psycho look is not a good look for anyone. So make sure to NOT do any of these “no no’s” and you will end up looking like the “Justin” out of “Justin and Britney”.
The Sad Drunk
No one likes a sad messy drunk, especially not one who can’t stop talking about all the horrible qualities of his or her ex. You need to be able to express your emotions, but NOT when you’re drunk. Do it the right way. Call you girlfriends over, binge watch “Sex and the City” and cry on their shoulders for however long you need. This way, you are getting out your emotions in the privacy of your own home, rather than in a club with 30 other people surrounding you.
The “I’ve Never Been Happier” Girl
We all know her and maybe we’ve been her a couple of times. This is the girl who is a hot mess all over social media. Every moment she is posting pics with new guys, she’s checking into any bar/club she goes to and writing statuses about how much she “LOVES” her life. This move is so old + obvious that everyone knows you’re not “happy.” Plus, if you have to s-p-e-l-l it out to everyone, you’re trying too hard. Bottom line, if you put more energy into actually feeling your emotions, instead of acting fake, you will be able to heal much faster and in a much healthier way.
This is the person that can’t let go, no matter how much evidence there is to do so. He or she is stalking via social media, calling or texting every day because “why can’t we still be friends?”, or keeping in close contact with the ex’s friends and/or family. These are all perfect examples of denial. Being hopeful will hurt you more in the end because what you actually need to be doing is grieving the loss of that relationship. So take some advice from Idina Menzel, and “Let It Go” girl, let it go.
