5 Things To Do After A Breakup \ Personal Tips


Yeah so me and my boyfriend split up...but I'm fine. We settled things between ourselves and it didn't end in a hostile manner, he's busy with work and having to move away for a bit and I have more than enough things coming up to keep me busy and you know what? I feel happy! Putting more distance between us wouldn't have ended well, and we were mature enough to call it a day.

I won't lie and say I don't miss him, of course I do but there's no room for negativity here- onwards and upwards. These tips don't necessarily apply to just romantic relationships, you can fall out with friends, family and so I think these still apply:

1. Take some time out from social media- seeing other couples can be difficult at first when you've just ended a relationship, so get yourself off Twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc and concentrate on more important things like your solid relationship with Hugh Jackman *swoons*.

2. Make plans with friends- there's nothing better than spending time your mates, they know just the trick to take your mind off things; cinema, shopping, day trip somewhere, pamper day, make plans to go away with them etc. An endless list of possibilities, you're real friends aren't going anywhere so go and see them and have a good laugh!

3. Take part in an online course- this one is more personal to me, I find that learning something new can turn your attention elsewhere and it can be a great excuse to try something you've never felt like doing before. For me I've started learning French and German on the Duolingo app on my phone, it's awesome and now I can attempt to chat up cute French and German boys!

4. Take care and treat yourself- we all need a bit of me time but take it to the next level; get your hair cut, dye it a new colour, treat yourself to new make up, buy a heap of books (Bridget Jones is a must), bath bombs, spa kits. Just give yourself some tender loving care because sometimes looking after number one is the most important thing, not only for your health but your self-esteem too. Me I love buying new underwear, there's nothing quite like it and it's for you no one else. 

5. Exercise- okay so I'm not big on getting active but I love going for walks, especially somewhere picturesque so I can take photos.Walks are the best way to release your thoughts and embrace everything around you, people watching, observing nature and just thinking to yourself with a bit of peace and quiet. Having a clear mind makes you feel refreshed and ready to get on with new challenges ahead.

We all go through rough patches but it's important to remember that you've got to give up some things to make room for something even better. I'm not sure when I'll be my full self again or whether there's a part of me that's changed for good, but I know the best thing I can do is look ahead and get through things my own way and that's the important thing. I'm feeling positive and I have so much to look forward to, and it's thanks to friends, family and you guys that I'm feeling this way. I have so many great ideas for this blog, and a bucket list of goals to reach that I'm eager to get started on.

My top tip that applies to everyone would be to never rely on someone else for happiness, concentrate on being a better you and appreciate every day with those you love. Life won't deal you something you can't handle, so stay strong my lovelies and dream of Hugh Jackman...or not because I don't share.

Hugs and love,
