"The Break Up Survival Kit

1. Accept that your appetite and sleep patterns will no where near resemble normal for some weeks yet try to EAT and SLEEP as much as you can.

2. Once you have actually broken up don’t ring, write or orchestrate accidental and unnecessary meetings.

3. Don’t don’t don’t listen to pop music, (or country music as Kansasman pointed out).

4. Avoid the use of alcohol/sleeping tablets/street drugs to try and dull the pain.

5. Grasp reality.

6. Make a list of all the things that made you wanted to throttle the ex alive, or worse.

7. Get absorbed in a new book or project, like I did in building this community.

8. Pack up/burn/sell/donate to charity the gifts that your ex bought you and letters/cards that they sent you, basically remove anything that reminds you of them heavily, either temporarily or for good.

9. Read children's books, you will find their simple stories and colourful pictures soothing.

10. Get crafty!

11. Move your furniture around, buy fresh new bedding and paint a wall a new colour, this helps to re-claim your space as YOUR space.

12. Round up all the ex's belongings in your home and put them somewhere in a bag/box.

13. Listen to talk based, current affairs radio stations.

14. Do The Cup Experiment

15. Keep a diary.

16. Pamper your body.

17. Look through the Archives here at the community to read lots of useful advice and encouragement.

18. If you do need to have contact in order to sort out matters of importance, such as access to any children, keep the dialogue polite and brief.

19. Allow yourself time to cry, it’s necessary, even you guys!

20. Talk to your friends, we’ve ALL been hurt and had relationships blow up in our faces.

21. Try not to worry about the severity of your despair, it will pass."

Break-up Survival Guide

Maybe you knew it was coming. Maybe you didn’t. You’ve been dumped.

So, other than moping around in your pajamas, spending quality time with Ben & Jerry, what can you do? Well, clear away that mountain of soggy tissues, and I’ll tell you how to get through the worst of it, the first 30 days.

Three things: Take care of yourself. Give yourself time to mourn. Move forward."

From http://www.health24.com/

"10 tips on break-up survival

Few things are as devastating as a messy break-up. Your self-image has been ground into the dust, you feel ugly and unwanted and you're sure people are talking about you behind your back. Or even worse, they feel sorry for you.

And there's this ache somewhere between your stomach and your ribs that just won't go away. Especially after you saw your ex with the new partner outside the bank this morning. But all is not lost, even though it feels like it right now.

Take heart.

Life is not over.

Other people will find you attractive again.

The awful feeling of sadness will not last forever.

You could be better off without this person.

Your finances will recover.

You can learn from this mistake.

You'll have more time now to spend with friends.

You don't have to account for your movements.

A cheat is going to do it again.

The best revenge is looking good and being happy."

Break-Up Survival Guide
by Rinatta Paries

Losing a loved one is never easy. Even when the loss is your choice, it isn't easy. Whether a person experiences a break up of a relationship, a death of a loved one, or another powerful loss, there are predictable stages one goes through, predictable feelings one feels.

Swiss-born psychiatrist Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross described the five classic stages of the coping with grief and loss. According to Kubler-Ross, a person experiencing loss will go through all of the stages, in any order.

The five stages are:

  • denial
  • resentment
  • bargaining
  • depression
  • acceptance

Loss and subsequent grieving is a powerful, transformative time. It is a time to take care of yourself, to let go of the past and to create a future. Unfortunately, many people get stuck in one of the stages of grief, unable to complete their process and move on.

If you are experiencing loss and grief right now, if you have recently ended or are in the process of ending a relationship, I would like to support you in moving through it in an empowering way. I've created the following list of suggestions for you to keep handy to help you cope:

Remember that you...

  • will feel pain
  • have survived this type of pain before and will this time as well
  • will feel lonely
  • are ok and lovable

Accept that...

  • the relationship is over
  • your ex partner has both good and bad qualities; do not idealize or discount him/her

Focus on...

  • yourself
  • personal growth
  • self care

Get complete with...

  • yourself
  • your ex


  • the magnificence of who you are
  • your part in the relationship break-up

Give yourself time to...

  • grieve
  • be alone
  • recover

Make sure that you...

  • get touch, from friends or a body therapist
  • have someone to come home to sometimes, like a relative or a friend


  • your community
  • yourself
  • your future
  • your dreams

If you're experiencing the end of a short-term relationship, consider the following:

Realize that...

  • the pain you feel is not about your ex partner, but about your past
  • if you start healing your past, the pain will subside
  • holding on to anger at an ex partner will keep you attached and in pain

Get complete with...

  • your ex partner
  • all of your ex partners
  • your parents

Give yourself...

  • room to grieve
  • room to grow

Build for yourself...

  • a community
  • self-esteem
  • a life that you love

Whether you are ending a long-term or a short-term relationship...

  • don't look for a new relationship until you are done grieving
  • trust that when ready you will attract the right partner
  • welcome the pain as an opportunity to evolve

It's through self-evolution that you will be able to create the relationship of your dreams.

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do - Break-Up Survival Tips
By Michael Russel

Some people can get over break-ups easier than others but most people will go through one or all of these stages:

Anger, sadness or possibly denial.

Everyone deals with his or her emotions differently. Having some remedies handy will help you to get through it the best way you possibly can.

There are some that might suggest throwing caution to the wind by eating entire pints of ice cream, drinking tequila shots, shop till you drop therapy.

But others offer more practical advice like getting out with friends or practicing yoga. See which break-up antidotes will work for you.

1. Get a makeover. Try something different than what you have ever looked like before.

2. Use his picture as a dartboard. Get that anger out!

3. Going out to eat with friends

4. See a psychic just for the fun of it

5. Get a totally hot new outfit

6. Learn something NEW - Pole dancing, crocheting, skydiving, whatever

7. Go to the gym, workout, burn off anger and get really buff doing it.

8. Take a mini vacation if you can. Something as simple as getting away for a weekend can refresh you while helping you to see that this is for the best.

9. If you cannot get away for a vacation then use self tanner to look like you did. You will look totally hot and every one will think you went on a vacation to the Bahamas or somewhere else great.

10. Curl up with a blanket and let yourself cry but for no longer than 60 minutes. Then get up, dry your tears and get on with getting over him.

11. Get a cool new hairstyle. Try a totally different color with the corresponding make up changes. If your hair is long then consider a short haircut for something completely different. You will have heads turning!

12. Go ahead and do something that he always HATED to do. If he hated to do the things you used to love and you stopped doing them to make him happy then start enjoying them again. Remember; do not give up the things you love for anyone. You lose a part of yourself when you do that. No man is worth giving up what makes you happy.

13. Get dressed to the nines, go out and then Flirt Like Crazy just because you can!

14. Indulge in eating a pint of ice cream

15. Clean Clean Clean! It gets your mind off him, burns energy and you have a super clean home for your efforts.

16. CHOCOLATE! - Need I say more?

17. Tell him you lied when you told him that he was the best you have ever had?

18. Long walks on the beach

19. Learn Yoga

20. Try to remember that some people are in our life for a reason - to teach us something. Maybe he has taught you all that he was supposed to and now you can find the person you are meant to be with.

In conclusion, although breaking up is hard to do you will get through this and usually your life will end up better for it. That which does not kill us will make us stronger. This too shall pass.

Yes, these are all clichés but they have been around for years and that is because they are true and they work.

Like the old song says "I will Survive!" Yes, you really will.
