Best Advice on How To Get Over a Break Up


Get a copy of "It's called a break up because its broken" - its by the guy that wrote "He's just not that into you" and its hilarious, its literally like talking to that friend that doesn't think before they speak and is completely honest. It WILL cheer you up and it will calm you down when you're having that panicked 'I'll just text them to see if they're okay too' moment.
Have a change around. Move the location of your bed or your sofa if you can, or just cleanse your wardrobe a little. Change will provide a relief and be a kick start to you moving on... also you can move your sofa back it's less dramatic then cutting off all your hair for a 'new look'
Remove them from all forms of social media. If you take just one piece of advice from this post, please let it be this! You WILL NOT move on if you're Facebook friends, you think you will, but you won't! You think you're both being super mature by remaining friends. Nope. It is one of the hardest things to do as you lose your stalking ability but 100% the best. Stop checking their Twitter NOW (I see you!)
If it looks like they're moving on, don't make it a new hobby to slate the new girl/boy. It's not their fault, its your ex you're mad at. You will just end up becoming bitter and as Mean Girls once quoted "Calling somebody else fat won't make you any skinnier. Calling someone stupid doesn't make you any smarter."
This could be the making of you. No seriously, it doesn't feel that way now, I know, I know! But it still could be, you will learn from this and you will grow from this and you will become a better, stronger person. 
Grieve. Don't make this a public meltdown, but don't pretend you're okay (except to the person who dumped you obviously!), take a day off work, eat some takeaway food and sob your heart out. Do not deny yourself of this process, but also try not to over-indulge. 
Do all of the things that you couldn't do when you were together. They hated chick flicks but you love them? Pull up Bridget Jones and make a damn evening of it. They hated Mexican food? Time to try out that Mexican restaurant. 
You don't want to be with someone that doesn't want to be with you. You may think that you do, but you don't. You're worth so much more than that! 
Everything happens for a reason. This has happened because you are not right for each other, you may think you are, but they don't. Go out and find someone who is right for you.

What is the best advice you were given for a break up?
