5 Things That Girls Do Post Break Up That We Shouldn’t Be Doing!

So the title is a tad long but this has to be said! 

I get it… heartbreaks SUCK! You want to cry, you want to throw a tantrum or in extreme cases, ruin his life but HEY! heartbreaks are a part of life and SHIT JUST HAPPENS!

I remember my first major heartbreak…couldn’t eat for days, was distraught, blamed myself for everything and just freaking WANTED him! In short, I was going nuts!

And I know that I am not alone, a lot of us go through this but it’s time we stopped behaving stupidly due to heartbreaks! Below is a list of 5 things that girls do post break up that we shouldn’t be doing or at least be doing them in moderation!

1) Retail Therapy:

Hollywood has really glamorized this but just think about it for a second, so he broke your heart and the only way you think you can get over a heartbreak is by breaking your bank? Real smooth move!

Also, this is bad cause personally I have bought a lot of useless shit this way that I had no idea what to do with later!

 2) Haircut

I have not done this myself but just explain to me, why? Is he attached to your tresses? Your hair is awesome! Don’t cut it. Period.

Also, change is good but this could happen! 

3) Binge Eating

Ice cream is great but HEY GIRL! He is not worth those extra calories!

4) Turning into philosophers

Tweeting or blogging pictures like this. Need I say more?

It’s as if, ‘A heartbreak is like gaining a direct PhD in philosophy! I ain’t going to school for that sh*t!’

5) Behaving as if he is the only guy in the world!

He isn’t! Someone else is going to come along and chances are that he may be a douche as well!

This is how I look at it, being in a positive, good relationship is like achieving Nirvana and most of us are going to be stuck in this cycle for quite some time, so might as well BE AWESOME and logical!

  1. Well, as a long-time married woman, I haven’t had to deal with this. So what’s my excuse for attacking the ice cream? Oh, maybe because I’m a long-time married woman. 😉

  2. The guy who breaks up with you today is only the stepping stone to the guy who you really love tomorrow. Trust me. I’ve been there, thought the pain would kill me; it didn’t and looking back now, Thank God for that breakup.

  3. Wise words indeed. For every pot there is a lid — that’s what I like to say. Consider yourself lucky for realizing this guy is not your Mr. X. great post.

  4. Number 4 isn’t bad though, this is the best result especially if in the process we actually gain some wisdom.

    I have actually changed my hair a number of times, never been sorry. Change is good (Wash that man right out of my hair).

  5. I’m loving the comments as much as I love your post. Good words of wisdom to keep in mind at a really bad time. And the hair thing, really important. I went from having long blonde hair down to the middle of my back to having a pixy cut overnight when I unhappily changed boyfriends once many years ago. Bad move. My hair has never been the same since.

  6. Can totally agree with all of the above. And especially the binge eating part. Food somehow makes you feel way better esp ice cream and chocolates. But like you said,no guy is worth the extra pounds of weight gained.

  7. I’ve never experienced a heartbreak let alone, a relationship haha! Well, I hope you’re alright, Ria! The guy… whoever he is, is a total jerk. And you’re right, there are a lot of other guys out there to think about 😉 He’s not the only one!

  8. One heartbreaker wanted to get back together again. Fortunately, I’d given up masochism in high school. So … no.

  9. Hah that’s like opposite for me 😛 Though I know she wasn’t the only girl in the world. Gives me a chance to put it about a bit. Mmmm yeah.

  10. Here, here. Took me way too long to realize that in the end, I’m stuck with me, so I better be really happy with *me* and not waste my time worrying about *him*

  11. Hey, just checking out your site and was immediately drawn to this post as this is exactly where I am right now. I am proud to say that I am not guilty of the first four offences, but the fifth…. ugh thinking he’s the only guy in the world for me has me going out of my mind! I’m glad to hear how common this is and am hoping I stop thinking like this soon!
