#1– Get Even
Anger is a normal emotion after a break up, but acting on that emotion is not okay no matter how the breakup went down. Any action you take out of anger only makes you look like the crazy ex, and it just supports your ex’s decision to dump you. You’re not crazy; you’re hurting. Work through your anger, don’t act on it.
#2– Hold it In
It’s okay to be in pain after having your heart ripped out of your chest. Cry and scream about it. Talk about it. Seek comfort. Write out your emotions. (But don’t contact your ex.) Work through your emotions daily to find your strength. You won’t feel this way forever, but healing takes longer when you stuff your emotions.
#3– Stalk Them
Don’t show up at their house or send a dozen texts messages a day. Don’t beg them to take you back, or ask what happened between the two of you. Here’s the deal: they dumped you because they weren’t willing to fully commit to you for a lifetime. Don’t waste your time on someone who doesn’t want to cherish you and stay committed for the long haul.
Some people can go into a depressive state after a breakup; they feel like no one will love them, and can even feel that life isn’t worth living anymore. Don’t ever think that you don’t have value because someone else decided to walk away. Getting dumped doesn’t mean you’re a terrible person or you did something wrong. If you’re feeling depressed and in pain, there are places you can go to talk to someone such as The Hopeline or Teenline
