Let’s face it, breakups are tough. They don’t always end as we plan and sometimes we never wanted the ending at all. If you’ve been in a relationship before, you know how difficult it can be to move forward. Today, I bring you 6 Reasons Why You Should Get Over Your Ex

(These tips apply to all genders and orientations, by the way).

6. It’s a Bad Look…

Whether you’re ready to date again or not, moping around because of your ex looks terrible on you. Not only is it bad for your mood, but it messes with your overall appearance. According to Dorland’s Illustrated Medical Dictionary, “The face lacks expression when a person becomes sad. She smiles less and the twinkle in her eye disappears. In the severely depressed, the voice becomes monotone, void of intonation and expression. She adopts a stooped posture and a slow gait with no buoyancy or enthusiasm. She may neglect her personal hygiene and appear disheveled. A blank gaze takes the place of eye contact with another.” Maybe you won’t go as far as not bathing, but try ditching the long face. When Mr. Right bumps into you at the supermarket – you want to be ready. Greet him with a smile!

5. Your Friends are Tired of Hearing about Him.

Yes, we are your shoulders to cry on, but with time your head gets heavy! Let’s change the topic a bit and check out that cutie at the movies instead.

4. You’re Losing/Gaining Weight.

One of the most common effects of sadness is increase/decrease in appetite which results in weight gain or loss. While a little fluctuation is normal, too much in either direction can be unhealthy. Psychiatrist Sheri Van Dijk states that it’s not uncommon to feel less energetic when you’re sad. “It’s also common to feel tired or run-down, experience a decrease in your energy level, feel lethargic, or want to stay in bed all day.” The desire to do less and stay home can definitely have a bad effect on your body and overall health.

3. You’re F*@ing Up!

The distraction of a break up can seriously impair your mental clarity and ability to focus. If you wonder why your work days feel more difficult – it may be stemming from your thoughts.

2. He’s Over It

Chances are, while you’re home sulking in sweatpants on a Friday night, he’s out having fun with his friends (don’t go troll his Instagram to check). Even if he’s mentally stressing, most guys don’t show it on the outside. If your ex can get up and get out – you can too.

1.    You’re Too Dope (Awesome) to be Crying!

Recognize that you are one of a kind, and whatever caused the breakup is not likely to happen again (unless you allow it). The special traits that your ex found intriguing will be even more captivating to the next person. There are approximately 7,241,037,067 people on this earth, you WILL find someone new. It’s not a question of if, it’s more like when. Now is your chance to get yourself together and prepare to be an awesome girlfriend.
