Just had my girlfriend break up with me. TBH I want to go jump off a cliff but I know I shouldn’t. What should I do to let the pain go away?

Honestly going through the exact same thing, and I have been through the exact same thing, I promise it gets better you have good days and bad days... but it will get better. Hang out with friends and family and people who will make you smile. Cry if you feel like crying, but don't force yourself to lay in bed all day. Write down how you feel so you can get it out. Do things you weren't able to do in a relationship. Work out, create goals for yourself, learn to love being alone. Go on dates when you are ready.1

Dude well if you feel like jumping off a cliff then DO IT... just make sure to open the parachute afterwards or land perfectly in the water (cliff diving is fun yeah lol).
But honestly, nothing like extreme adventure to take he mind off the current situation mate. It sucks, you know it sucks and you don't me to tell you it does. Every generic answer from "time heals all wounds" to "it'll get better when you move on" will help later in life but I KNOW right now they are annoying to hear.
If the break up wasn't bad and or you still want her, the chance is there. But because she broke up with you, she needs space and you should let her contact you. But in the meantime you pick yourself up, keep those depression thoughts at bay and live life, even better than before. Let this pain she's cause you elevate you to new heights so when she returns you're at your best self, rather you get back with her or just enjoy the new you... it's win win.
1st week... eat ice cream, cry, linger in the sadness. Don't fight it.
But week 2, Awaken the beast and never let him go back to sleep. Good luck brother.0
