Top 5 Worst Ways To Cope After A Breakup

I know going through a breakup can be the absolute worst thing EVER. Every time I find myself in “breakup mode,” there are always the same things involved: lots of chocolate, even more red wine, The Notebook, and my best friends.

But there are just some things you absolutely cannot do while coping after a breakup. They’ll only make your life more miserable. Take these examples from Michael B Jordan in That Awkward Moment as lessons of what NOT to do post-breakup:

Don’t eat your emotions. This will only result in you gaining weight and feeling more terrible about yourself. Instead, head to the gym to blow off some steam.

Don’t continue sleeping with your ex. This is an absolute no-no! Sleeping with your ex proves you still want to be with that person and leaves you feeling like you’re being used. Get over the situation and get under someone else.

Don’t let the breakup impact your friendships. Michael B. Jordan lies to his friends by telling them he’s sleeping with someone new while he continues sleeping with his ex.  Friendship is forever… A hookup with an ex you’ll never get back together with isn’t worth it.

Don’t talk to potential new lovers about your ex. Um… duh! No one who’s new in your life wants to hear about your past relationships. Talk about yourself and the positives in our life and get to know this new person instead.

Don’t go out of your way to impress your ex. Michael B Jordan goes out of his way to make a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner for his ex who’s still sleeping with other people.  Don’t ever put an ex in front of yourself. Instead, go do something for YOU that makes YOU feel good about yourself.
