Most Helpful Girl
It might sound strange but when me and my ex broke up I decided to become a vegetarian. It was a huge life altering thing for me, because I relied on meat so much. It got me feeling healthier and looking fitter which made me feel great about myself and really helped me get over him. I also began to exercise more often for the same reason, it helped me with my confidence.
I also took a lot of walks, I have three dogs so I do a lot of walking anyway, it's a great way to clear your head. I read a lot and wrote down my feelings. I also made a list of all the reasons my ex wasn't the one for me.
I also began reorganizing my dorm, gave him back the stuff he wanted and threw out the rest of the stuff that reminded me off him- a clean slate. I also went on a few dates, went out with friends- kept socially active.
The big thing I had to do was stop telling "the story" about how badly I was hurt and how horribly I was wronged. I had to stop thinking about the hurt, it kept me from moving on.
