Technically I’m not recovering from a break up, I’m just moving on forward with my life.  It’s just funny because it’s like the world has conspired and it was telling me that I’m just in denial and trying to give me tips for moving on.

Why did I say so?  Last Friday the Top Ten topic from The Morning Rush was about the “Unusual Ways to Mend a Broken Heart” of which two of my entries made it to the list.

Then, today the first article that I’ve read from yahoo was the Break up Recovery 101, basically it is about the 5 tips for making break up a little easier and you can read it below for appreciation.

I just realized that it is true that the person who can make you smile is also the same person who can make cry.  Well, I didn’t cry “cry” this time, I’m tired of crying.  But, I do miss someone not because I love him but because he makes me happy especially on the days that I don’t feel like doing something.

And the past few days was really different, he started to falter and everything is not the same.  I was really having a hard time accepting the fact that I can’t do anything about it.  I just have to accept things as they are.  What’s really saddening is I am just enjoying everything and now I have to start all over again.

But being under this cycle so many times, I’m just trying hard to be strong because at the end of the day, I really have to be strong and I’ve got no choice but to be happy with what I have.

So, I just want to share this video and song by Courtney Jaye entitled, Can you Sleep?  The song was played in One Tree Hill when Lucas and Brooke broke up.  Hope you like it and I’m also attaching the Yahoo Article.

The Article from Yahoo: Whether or not you were together for two weeks, six months, or four years, breakups hurt. And they can be really hard to get over. If you listen to the wise words of Charlotte on Sex and the City, it takes half the time you were together to get over him. Here are a few more wise words to help make your next breakup a little easier.

Don’t Talk to Him

The most crucial rule in breaking up is to not talk to the person you’re breaking up with. Even if you think you can handle it and still get over the person, you can’t. Don’t kid yourself; feelings will get hurt. Take some time off, get over him, and maybe someday in the future you’ll be friends. Until then, lick your wounds and recover any way you’d like; whether that be partying hard, staying in bed for days with pints of ice cream, or spending absurd amounts of money on clothes you don’t need. No one will say a thing; we all heal in our own, weird ways.

Snap Out of It

Remember how things, like stupid songs and movies and that little spot in the park that you two went to on your first date used to be “yours”? Well, they’re not anymore. Don’t make a connection to platonic objects when there isn’t one. Remind yourself that you like that spot in the park because of the good view, not because of anyone connected to it. There’s no point losing more than you have to from a breakup, so don’t get all sappy on yourself.

Reconnect with Your Friends

No matter how much you say you’re not going to be that girl who gives up her friends for her boyfriend; everyone gives up a little of their time to spend with their guy. Well, now is the time to make it up to them (and, you could use the girl talk). So, go out and have fun; grab your best wing woman, and remember how much fun being single really is.

Take Some Time for Yourself

Amidst all of this trying not to talk to him, hanging out with friends, partying more and/or eating lots and lots of ice cream-you need to remember to sit back and actually work through your feelings. Understand why things went south, and why you’re better off this way. And in no time you’ll be back to your old self, and what’s-his-name will be a thing of the past.

It’s All About Rewards

And finally, do all of the little things that make you happy every day. Yep, being single means thinking about you, you, and you. So, go and take that extra time after work and buy yourself that little ring you’ve been obsessing over. Or take a long walk and meet a friend for cupcakes because well, you can. Have fun spoiling yourself, because you deserve it after….wait, what? I’m forgetting already.
