How I Survived a Broken Heart

Y'all know I'm not shy about telling you I went through a bad breakup last year. I'm hella over that but trust, it wasn't easy. Here's how I got through it...

CLEAN SWEEP

I got rid of old text messages, pictures and their clothing I still had. You don't hang on to old Band-Aids. Throw that in the trash!

SILENT TREATMENT

I tried my best to cut off communication. It was the best medicine for me.

GETTIN' MY MIND RIGHT

I started forcing myself to have a lot more fun. I tried new things—going out and just doing more stuff. Like if somebody invited me somewhere, before the split I would've been like, "No, I'm not sure." But in recovery mode I was like, "Yeah, sure. Why not? Let's go hangout. Let's go to dinner." A healthy relationship does not mean you need to be with that person 24/7.

LOSE THOSE DIGITS

You have to get rid of everything associated with them. Its best to get rid of their number. Or if you can't quite let go, at least change the title of their name in your phone.

ON REPEAT

Beyoncé's "Lemonade" had just come out when we broke up, so I played that on repeat.

KEEP IT MOVING

I dove into work and just started having more fun!!!
