How do you handle a break-up? Who do you call first? A parent, a best friend, or sibling? Do you go out with your friends for drinks to escape the dreary now empty space or curl up under the blankets while shoveling your favorite treats down your pie hole? No matter, what you do to try to move on, man it really hurts.
Let’s face it; break-ups are hard. The only ones that aren’t, are the ones you never cared about in the first place. So this blog is not for everyone. However, if you feel like your heart is broken, and that you’ll never find another lover, well this one’s just for you. Some suffer in silence while others reach out to mom or dad to get advice on what do. Others will indulge in risky sexual activities in order to get over their ex if there’s no one close to lean on. Though most call a best friend who will usually fall right in line and do the best friend duty of reminding you of all the negative things your ex has done, telling you that they never deserved you anyway. Your best friend walks beside you during this process. They might keep you on the phone/sit with you, listen to yell and scream. They will take you out and get you drunk and then hold your head so you don’t drown yourself in the toilet. They will keep you from going home with the first guy/girl who hits on you in the bar after the break-up. We all know there is no “right” time to move on after breaking up with a lover; however, let’s face it eventually one has to cut their losses.
I can tell you every relationship that has ended for me, my best friend has unfailingly been right there. She has always said, “I don’t care what happened, who did what, you know I will always be team Rachel!” When your heart is broken it is the best feeling in the world to know that someone is there for you 100% no matter what. Even when you may not have been on your best behavior, your best friend will be there to support you. They will gently steer you in the right direction to get you back on track. Some best friends may not be so gentle but hey; that’s why they are your best friend. They know how to help you along your path. J

Dear238 Quick Tip: Remember, no matter how hard this break-up seems; you will get through it. Don’t change for anyone just to stay with someone. The right person is out there, and you can’t find the right one if you are willing to settle for the wrong one.
