These are some random ideas that my besty and I came up with yesterday when we were on the topic of dealing with exes. Ex boyfriend, ex husband, ex something. Basta ex. She said it’s only now that she realized that she should do something about her 4-year heartbreak from GCP.
Anyhoodles, according to her, moi and us, these are the most common tactics one could do to deal.
We’re not saying these are effective. And we’re not saying we practice all the items. Ho-hummm.
Bless Brian McKnight for One Last Cry. Get a towel instead of a hanky or Kleenex. Think about your excruciating fights and happy make-up (and make-out) sessions. Go ahead and cry about the past. Sob. Bawl! Once you feel your tear ducts dehydrated, stop. Wipe your tears and smile. Congratulate yourself for accomplishing an emotional catharsis.
Be beautiful, wear that winning smile and beauty queen confidence. Go out on a date and discover things and places that your good for nothing ex never showed you. Go out. Look for adventure! Have fun and see where it takes you.
Careful, a bootie call should never be romanticized. Intimacy shouldn’t be confused with passion. Lust is not the same with love. Combine the two at your own risk. You don’t have to act all needy and cuddly after the deed just to make the other feel special. Set parameters to avoid casualties. Good luck! Tough luck!
If you must talk about the past, use your mental sieve! Dissecting memories is hard to avoid. The most important ones will always try to come out. So before saying anything, pause and select only details that will not provoke another string of arguments or wave of regrets.
Forgetting is optional. Forgiveness is mandatory. Remember, even bastards have a redeeming factor, and that is mortality. Yes, dear. Them fuckers are also bound to die. Forgive them now and let afterlife take care of them.
I wonder which among these five would my besty do. I’m guessing, everything except 3.
