here. To aid in the process of moving on it's typical to eat a tub of Ben and Jerry's ice cream while spritzing whipped cream on your tongue while watching The Notebook. It's a lot of emotional multi-tasking. Then you bash on your ex. Then you regret the sweets and hit the gym...hard. You're convinced you'll get a body that will win your ex back, as if losing five pounds will miraculously fix all the problems in that ol' relationship. Then you drink...a lot. Dressing up and going out with the girls while prowling for new meat is sure to fix that broken heart. Right?
Let's skip all that binge eating. Let's skip that two hour run at the gym. Let's skip that nasty hangover. Let's just feel. Feel that sucky pain. Cry those salty tears. Let your emotions get the best of you. It's okay to let it all out. It's okay to be human.
My pretty friend, Erika, is one heck of a human. (Check out her Tumblr). She made up a breakup box for someone who recently had their little heart crushed. I loved the idea. She put in some yummy treats, inspiring books, a wine glass, a "grow-your-own-prince," a razor (to avoid becoming a wooly mammoth), and oodles more. How sweet is she?
Sometimes we need to be reminded that we are cared for, especially when we lose a love. So if you know someone who is going through a breakup then try putting together a "breakup box" for them. It will probably mend their heart more than you know.
