Breakups are tough, and I get that. No one can really prepare you for what’s about to happen the moment someone breaks up with you.
Even mainstream movies and TV shows don’t paint a pretty picture – a girl will wallow in tears, wearing her pyjamas and binge-watch all of Nicholas Sparks’ novels-turned movies while eating a tub of Ben and Jerry’s.
For women, it’s pretty difficult to get over an ex-boyfriend or ex-husband, though I’d like to say that women are emotionally more capable of getting over a breakup than men.
Regardless of what caused the split between you and your ex-boyfriend/ex-husband, it’s understandable to have some feelings of pain, guilt, anger, sadness, and loss mixed into one sad little bowl. You can even fall into a trap of obsession – of trying to reach out to him or worse, trying to get back to him.
No matter what happened between you two, it’s far more important to move on. Read on if you want to know how to get over him.
