Hey! Someone broke your heart???
Follow this simple "7 Steps Plan" to mend it!!
You've probably been through one or two other heartbreaks before, remember what you did what then and try to do it again. (It could help...)
Now, This "article" is from my own experience so, it might not work with you but lets give it a try, shall we?
1. Get out of "The Shock"
Accept it, he left, that's it. It might be painful to say it but it's the truth. Look yourself in the mirror and say it to yourself. Now, changes are... you're not "really" going to believe that. I mean, you probably loved the guy! But that's the first step to rebuild your heart. Hang on, girl! You can do this!!
2. Buy ice cream
Might not be the "greatest idea ever but it does the trick. If you prefer chocolate, buy it! Buy something that's not really "healthy" but you love to eat! It'll help. Buy lots of it, put it on the freezer and get on with step #3!
3. Get Netflix
Please....Romantic Comedies? They're great to mend broken hearts! (Comment below if you would like me to recommend some GREAT Romantic Comedies for broken hearts.)
I mean, it might not quite sound it because of the "romantic" part but it really helps you let it all out and make you understand that if he broke up with you...HE WASN'T REALLY THE ONE! Understand that there's better guys out there and probably much better that him! "Hey, just look at the guy in the movie...He looks awesome, right? You'll eventually find one like that if it's meant to be..." The best movie site (Well, the one I recommend) is NETFLIX, get it, it's worth it. (But in case you can't, "Putlocker" could be a good site too)
4. Organize a few days off
OKAY, so we've got the ice cream and we've got the movies. Take some days off! We don't want a heart break to make us screw our job or school! Take a whole weekend off and enjoy.
5. Let's do this!
The time has come...Get really for many many tears and sadness...and anger. Turn on your computer (or TV), get the ice cream (some tissues could be helpful), seat on your couch or lie on your bed and...stay there...just stay. Cover yourself and blankets (Just like a Taco), use your favorite PJ's and get ready for this emotional roller coaster, it's not going to be easy but..well, recoveries never are, girl. Now, it's your time to overthink, pity yourself, BE SAD, cry, get angry, imagine great conversations and comebacks you would have for him even thought, you know they're not...actually happening (Might though, so be prepared hahaha). This is your time to be completely a mess and it's fine. Try to distance yourself from the social media and your phone 'cause it can be a distraction to this important step on your recovery. It's going to hurt but if you don't take a exact time to do this, you'll do it unconsciously for a very long time and it might screw with your concentration, happiness and life. Okay look, I know you're probably thinking about drinking a bit and that's okay (if you're older than 18) but please, PLEASE don't over do it...You might drunk TEXT or CALL your Ex! NOOOO, we don't want that embarrassment, right? So, try to avoid drinking and using your phone. Remember to have a maximum amount of days to do this because if you don't put a "End Day"...you might continue for a very...very long time. Have a limit and learn to respect it, okay? It's for the best!
6.Stop pitying yourself already. Enough is enough!
Enough is enough, girl. After your "End Day'" arrives, get strong and start to...Well, start again.
Time to get your life together. Yeah, I know you aren't probably "recovered" yet but you have to admit you feel a bit better. Like if you got rid of a very heave burden perphaps, every girl and relationship is different and the result may vary but there is DEFINITELY a improvement. Now, Turn the Computer off, take the empty ice cream buckets out, throw away the tissues and start again, girl.

-Kelly Clarkson - Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)
7. Hit the Gym *Got to get rid of all that ice cream one way or another! hahaha
So yeah, get yourself a great playlist and hit the gym... Work out, feel good with yourself and try to stop think about him...It might be VERY hard but try...slowly, you won't even notice how you're not even about him that much. It will be hard but as you work out, start thinking about the positive things you learned in this relationship and how it will improve the next one! Come on, girl, you can do this and you know it. Don't let that silly boy mess with your life. Get back to your life normally and try to not fall back on the heart broken state...Now, please take a moment, look at the mirror and repeat step #1 BUT STOP THERE! hahaha, don't repeat the WHOLE process without noticing but if you feel like you haven't gotten close to letting it go...Do repeat the whole process. You'll get there eventually!
Take conform on your family, friends or pets! They'll be there for you in this hard time, tell them about your plan (aka this one, hahaha) to see if they could maybe help you out and support you with it.
I have many more advices to give, just let me know in the comment section if you might need them.
