The minute those words are said, nothing else matters. He’s gone. You couldn’t not hear him. It’s over.
Stop. The relationship may be over, but your life isn’t.
Allow yourself one day to be sad. One day to cry, to whine to your friends, to listen to soppy music and allow yourself to eat copious amount of chocolate. And then stop. Depression will get you no where. No one else will want to kiss you if you have snot running down your face, so clean yourself up and stick a smile on your face, even if it’s fake.
They don’t call makeup warpaint for nothing. Slap it on – if you look gorgeous, you will feel gorgeous. Then go out, show the world how beautiful you are. He doesn’t need to see. There are plenty of other people out there that will appreciate your beauty.
There’s no cure for heartache like a night in with the girls. Stock up on the facemasks, hot chocolate and cheesy movies. For the entire evening, allow yourself to forget all about the male species. As long as you’ve got your girls, you will be ok!
A word of warning, however. Avoid rebound relationships at all costs! That “get over one guy by getting under another” line is a total myth. Rebounds don’t make you feel better, they just end up hurting both people involved. Not good.
In time, your heart will heal. Heartbreak happens to the best of us, and no one is immune. Just remember this: You will get over it. One day, you will find the guy that will want to be with you, the guy that won’t leave you. Don’t be sad while you wait for him. Get out there and enjoy life, girl. There are plenty of guys out there that will want you – you just have to go out and find him. Good luck!
