Ways To Get Over An Ex

I have just realised that I have done a two part post without knowing it. I wrote a post about heartbreak a few days ago and this kind of continues on to this new post.

Now, you've made it through the phase of crying into your pillow and you've deleted the Adele playlist from Spotify after having it on repeat long enough for the whole household to get pissed off at you for playing it too much.

You finally manage to crawl yourself out of your well slept bed and open the curtains, the brightness hurting your eyes as you've had them shut for days, to the point your neighbours thought that you were hibernating. You get changed out of your well worn pyjama's (hopefully not an old t shirt of his) and you put on some of your nicer clothes and you walk downstairs and watch some shows on catch up. Sounding familiar? Good, you're going on the right tracks of getting over your ex.

I've had to get over men and the first time is quite hard. You literally think the world is ending and that you want to never face the human race ever again. But it does get better, I promise you. This may sound depressing but maybe wise enough, but the more heartbreak you face, the stronger it makes you.


But if you're struggling to jump over that last hurdle of getting over him, here are some ways to help you do that:

1) DON'T  OVERDO  IT  ON  THE  ALCOHOL
Drinking alcohol won't make your problems disappear (as cliché as that sounds). Have a glass or two of rose (or whatever your tipple is) but don't rely on it to get over your ex. It won't do you and your health any favours.
 
 
2) DON'T  CALL  HIM
For goodness sake don't call or message him. It'll just make things worse for the pair of you. You want to move on from him, don't make it harder on yourself by messaging him asking what he's up to. Honestly, it will make you sound incredibly needy and desperate.
 
 
3) DON'T  STALK  HIS  SOCIAL  MEDIA  PAGES
That's kind of just as bad as the above number two. Unfortunately it's a very natural thing to do - stalk his social media pages after you break up. Scrolling and endlessly refreshing his social media profiles to see who he's now following and finding out who he is having a cheeky Nando's with is not going to do your mental health any favours. Maybe the best way to stop yourself from doing that is to unfollow or even block him.

4) GET  TO  THE  GYM
  Buy a decent pair of boxing gloves and do a Anthony Joshua on the punch bag. Beat the hell out of it! Plus you're getting some much needed exercise after you've been stuffing your face with chocolates in bed moping about your ex. Two stones eh?

5) DRESS  UP  AND  GO  OUT
Find that dress/outfit of yours in the back of the wardrobe that accentuates your assets, put it on, get some makeup on, buy a good concealer to cover the bags under your eyes from crying, you don't want to be looking like a Panda and show him what he's missing! I mean don't act like a slut, but you know, just show him what he's left behind. Make him feel regretful.

6) START  A  HOBBY
One way to distract yourself from your ex is to find a new hobby. Something that takes your fancy down at the local leisure centre or even a college course. Maybe you could start blogging?
 
 
7) SHOW  HIM  YOU'RE  DOING  JUST  FINE
If, heaven forbid, you bump into him out in public, keep your composure, put your biggest smile on and just relax. Don't put a massive act on, he'll see right through it, just be yourself.

I hope these ways help you get over that ex of yours and help you move on with your life. Don't let one person define your life and what it will become.

Now sing it with me - "This is a shoutout to my ex!"
