Break-up season is in the air. 

The rose-tinted glasses you’ve been wearing since the new year is starting to crack. 

This is the year you take control of your life and don’t settle for less than your deserve

But it’s 2020 and this is the year we don’t act like children just because your relationship didn’t work out. 

So here is what we’re going to do. 

 

  • No ghosting.

No more of this please. When did we start thinking this was okay?

It’s brutal and no one learns anything from the experience other than how to avoid your problems. 

You don’t learn to confront what wasn’t working for you in the relationship and your ex-partner won’t learn what they did wrong.

  • Set a time period to be sad

Depending on whether you’re the dumper or the dumpee, whether it was a long or short relationship.

Set a time limit to wallow in self pity and cry into buckets of ice cream and fried chicken and then wake up the next day and start fresh.

  • Figure out your glow-up

Whether it’s learning a new skill or getting the perfect revenge-body.

Figure out how this break up is going to be the catalyst for you to be MORE than you were before.

This is also a great way to distract yourself from any lingering loneliness.

  • You don’t have to cut people out of your lives

Just because your ex is an ex doesn’t mean they have to be gone from your life.

If you can find a way to co-exist or even be friends then don’t let other people tell you that’s abnormal.

That’s healthy and mature!
