QUESTION: I just got my heart broken by my boyfriend of over 2 years. How do you make yourself feel better when you feel like you'll never be happy again?

  1. for temporary bursts of happiness, spend time with friends. But otherwise just give it time.

  2. You don't. Feeling this way is normal and it's going to suck a whole lot for a while.

    Make sure you keep separated. Trying to be friends afterwards when you have a broken heart is usually just painful for both parties.

    Make sure you surround yourself with supportive friends. Don't have any? Go make some. Seriously, having good people in your life and making sure you socialize regularly will really help.

    Make sure you take care of yourself, and don't beat yourself up for feeling bad. Eventually you'll get over it... and you might even find someone new! You can't predict that, so just grieve as you need to. If your friends call you a downer, they're being shitty friends.

    Whatever happens, don't be dependent on the idea of being in a relationship. Honestly, good relationships are hard to find and being single has been much better for me than being in a bad one. Being alone is not a negative thing and doesn't reflect on you badly.

    I also wanted to add.. OP, if you're a woman, I know society places a lot of emphasis on women's relationship status (if you're single there must be something wrong with you! crazy/bitch/ugly/prude/slut/etc.!)---don't fall into the trap of thinking that way. It's a bullshit double standard. Women are people independent of whether they're a daughter/wife/girlfriend and not dating someone doesn't make you less valuable. For some reason society seems to fear single women that aren't dependent on the men in their life.

  4. Go grab a tub of ice cream and your favourite movie. Next day go to the gym and burn all the ice cream off. After that focus on the future, not the past. Try to be the best you can become instead of following the footsteps already taken.
