" How to Survive a Break up (girl)

How to survive a break up with grace and dignity. Steps for getting over that certain guy and leaving with your head held high.

1. Do not cry in front of him, you don’t want to look like a basket case and make him think that he’s making the right decision.

2. Get in the car and let out a good scream when you’re at least two blocks away from his house.

3. Drive to your best friend’s house for a shoulder to cry on.  

4. CRY….have a long, good cry.

5. Eat plenty of ice cream; your emotions deserve it.

6. Box up all the things that he gave you, or that remind you of him.

7. Print out all emails he sent you; gather up all letters he wrote you...

8. Cut off all contact with him for at least a month...

9. If he goes to your school, always look good.

10. When he does come back around, (because you’re too great of a girl for him to not come back), make him work for your attention.

11. The rest is up to you!"

"How to survive a break up

Been a few days since my last post. Blogs are full of "no kidding" advice that seem so trite i.e. obvious. However you might not know that your number one enemy after a breakup is silence. All it does is let your brain continue its maddening pace at trying to resolve your problem. Its best to let your mind work itself out while you sleep. Watch a movie, turn on the tv, or even much better put on your favorite jam music and sing. Play it long and loud, and for heavens sake dont you dare play anything depressing."

"How To Survive A Break Up

The following is a list of things you can do to help you Survive a Break up.

It is a good thing to be with friends and family as much as possible after a break up.

A healthy way to work through your feelings is by writing about the break up and the way you feel during the healing period.

Even though many people may disagree, it works if you cry one good time, to get all of your emotions out.

Get a journal and write down what you have learned from the relationship, about yourself, relationships, and life.

Create time to do activities you enjoy.

It is important not to engage in self-destructive behaviors such as blaming yourself for the break up or not caring for yourself.

Do not expect to get over the relationship quickly.

Take good care of yourself.

You may need help."

Comment:  "How To Survive A Break Up"

Breaking up

Nobody likes to hurt another person, especially somebody they have been close to, and it is often very easy to guilt trip somebody into staying with you when they are trying to end things.

Resist this urge!

When you use guilt as a way to stop a break up you not only cheat yourself out of having a good and true relationship, you foster resentment in the other person which could lead to greater pain and heart ache in the future. "

"you will survive! Don't let a break-up poison your future

Who says breaking up is hard to do? Some people find it so easy they can walk out with no warning and never look back. For them, it's off with the old and on with the new.

But the person who's been dumped has a harder time adjusting – all the more if the break-up is unexpected or their partner disappears with no further contact. Unable to ask what went wrong, they're left with a burden of anger, bewilderment and grief that has no clear outlet.

They may even feel ashamed, either for failing at the relationship or for being foolish enough to love such a selfish rat."

"Q. How to Survive a Break up!?

My boyfriend just told me last sunday that he slept with another girl. He said it was b/c we weren't married. Yes we both said we'd take a break for a week (it was 3 days). well we never gave any rules. But now he said he doesn't know what his feelings for me are. He also said i deserve better than him so he said he doesn't think we should be together anymore. We have been together for 3 1/2 years. We have a 2yr old. I was hope'n for this to work. But now im not so sure. How do I move one and survive?


Look a break up is never fun... and ur broken heart will heal..be glad he told you this now.. and accept it and move on..you do TRUTH LY deserve better and will have better...live for your kid and only him... He should be the only reason ....good luck ...im if you need to talk more..

A. Survival is very hard - my advice to you is to give all the love you would have given him and give it to your child who is worth your time and energy. If you leave your bf alone for a long while he will some how miss something nice about you. Don't call him - just show him that you are in control of yourself. It will be hard but you can do it."

From http://www.teentouch.org/coping_dating.asp


Nobody enjoys a break-up, no matter how old they are. Ending a relationship can be messy and painful.

If you're the person breaking up, here's how to do it quickly and directly, with minimal damage to both parties:

Do it face-to-face.

And do it privately.

Don't accuse or blame.

This only increases the hurt and the likelihood of an argument or the person saying, "I'll change."

Avoid "making a case".

You want the break-up to seem like it was fated to happen and not the result of anyone's behaviour. Simply say, "I want to go out with other people," or "I guess I don't feel the way I used to." Make it clear that your feelings have changed and that it's not the other person's fault.

Now you have to put the pieces back together, but the pieces aren't going back the same way they did before. What can you do?

Time is your best friend in surviving a break-up. Keep busy. The busier you are, the less time you have to feel miserable.

Talk is your next-best friend. Find someone you trust and who you feel will understand and help you get through this difficult time.

Take it one day at a time. Things usually have a tendency to get better. It's just a matter of getting through each day, and the next one becomes a little easier.

"How to Survive a Breakup

The end of a relationship is one of the more painful and stressful things people experience. As a culture, we have no clear-cut rituals for ending relationships or saying good-bye to valued others. We are often unprepared for the variety of feelings we experience in the process. Sometimes, the emotions that come up after a break-up can catch us off-guard and impact our functioning at school, work, and with other friends."

From http://www.forbeginners.info/dating/breaking-up-2.htm

"How to Survive a Bad Breakup

Try to understand why the relationship failed, but remember not to blame yourself or analyze the matter until you feel crazy. Realize that if your partner wanted to be with you, you could have worked out your differences in other ways than by breaking up. Blaming him or her will also not do you any good, because even if it was his fault, all you are doing is defining yourself to others as a victim. It is a sad truth that you cannot have a relationship with someone who will not have a relationship with you."

"How to survive a breakup.

So that's it then, he/she's done with you, what do you do with your life now? I will guide you through the next few months of existance.

First of all, let's get one thing straight. The phrase "Let's just be friends" or the more popular variation "We can still be friends" is a thinly disguised code-phrase. In reality "Let's just be friends" means "I never want to witness your presence again you pathetic fetid wasting pile, but I don't want you to feel bad about it." This is the first major bound you have to make in getting through a breakup. Once you've established this, you can move on. Only once in recorded history has a couple remained friends after a breakup, in the early Renniasance, and the friendship lasted only as long as the effects of the alcohol.

The method of the breakup is irrelevant. But this instruction assumes that you're at home to begin with. So if you were broken up with over the phone/e-mail/them walking up to your door/instant messanger/carrier pigeon/fireworks/skywriting/graffiti/singing telegram/tv evangelist. Then these instructions are for you. If you are unfortunate to have this happen to you in a public place then drag yourself back home by your lips and adjust the time accordingly."
