Getting Over It
As some of you may know if you follow my personal blog (gothistory), my blog posts haven’t been the happiest to date.
Last Wednesday night around 11:30, my boyfriend, now ex-boyfriend, decided it would be a wise time to call and break up with me. Luckily, I have some pretty amazing friends who came over right away to comfort me and help me brush some negative emotions off.
Regardless, I was devastated. While the relationship was only a month long, I invested a lot of care and patience into the relationship because I did not get to see him every weekend, nor during the week. If I had been told the relationship was only going to last a month, I wouldn’t have bothered. I commit to things with 110% responsibility and carefulness. Naturally, getting over this relationship hasn’t been a one-day process. I’m still not over it as I write this, but with time, everything gets better.
My instant, and best reaction that I had to this was to surround myself with friends. This helped me get things off my mind, and should help anyone get stuff off their mind. However, my friends were very busy this weekend (as was I, studying for 4 tests), so I ended up shutting myself off from my technology and my main bases of communication. Surprisingly, this really helped me to just be by myself. I wasn’t bothered by constant questions, nor was the topic being reiterated over and over again. The next thing I found to be super helpful was to delve myself into music. I turned to my favorite band SafetySuit just to calm my nerves. You’d be surprised to know how much music helps with just your thoughts alone. And lastly, as y’all know from my last blog post, I LOVE to exercise. Sprinting and feeling the pain in my muscles helped me get past my emotional nagging.
Now, hopefully y’all don’t think I’m going crazy and just writing about myself. I wanted to lend some tips to you guys if anyone else is going through anything difficult. If y’all ever need anyone to talk to, my ask box is always open. A one-month breakup hasn’t been the worst thing I’ve been through, and sure as heck won’t be bothering me forever.
Remember, you’re all stronger than you think.
