Break ups don’t have to be all doom and gloom. Find out why some of your happiest days might be right around the corner!
Going through a tough break up feels like the end of the world. Meteors are falling, biblical plagues seem imminent and the ground seems like it could cave in at any moment.
Of course, it only make sense to stay inside all day nursing a bucket of your favorite ice cream and watching soap opera reruns.
Safety first, right?
Truth be told, even bad break ups don’t have to ruin your life. If you can keep from fixating on all the reasons your life is over, there’s actually good reason to be happy after a break up. Keep reading to find out the top 13 reason to be happy after a breakup!
1. You can go do girly things with your friends.
Now’s the time to let loose. Go shopping. Go get your nails done. Go do whatever the hell you want!
2. No more trying to sleep through snoring.
Stretch out, take the bed all to yourself and get a good night’s sleep. After all, shopping takes energy!
3. You can start doing all the things he didn’t like again.
Have some fun and start back up with those habits he hated. Leave your makeup wherever you want to. Fall asleep to bad TV dramas. It’s your show now, right?
4. The toilet seat will always be down.
Thank goodness, it’s a miracle!
5. You can eat as much chocolate as you want.
6. You don’t have to worry about how you look all the time.
Want to spend the whole day in sweats and a t-shirt? No one’s judging 🙂
7. You can flirt with all the other cute boys.
The waiter? That cute guy at the gym? Your forever-patiently-waiting friend Todd? Nothing’s off limits.
8. Let’s be honest, he was kind of a dick anyway.
Your friend Todd seems so much nicer. And that guy at the gym… those abs!
9. You’ll have more time to yourself.
Pick up a new hobby. Get ahead at work. Volunteer at an animal shelter. The possibilities are endless.
10. There are plenty of good TV shows that need watching.
They’ve been missing you lately.
11. …And plenty of triple fudge ice cream that needs eating.
Come on, it’s not going to eat itself 🙂
12. You deserve better.
You deserve someone who appreciates you and loves you for who you are. Someone who goes out of his way to call you and tell you he loves you.
Someone who takes you out for a nice dinner just because it’s Tuesday. And brings home flowers just because it’s Wednesdays. Those guys are out there. It may not seem like it now, but you’ll find someone even better. [Read – 5 Smart Ideas To Make Someone Fall In Love With You]
13. It’ll all work out for the best in the end.
There will be a time a few years from now when you’ll look back and be happy everything happened the way it did.
You’ll be happy, you’ll find someone else and you’ll look back at this break up and laugh. Be patient and keep being you, and the right guy for you will eventually turn up.
But don’t wait until then to be happy! There’s too much sleep to be had, TV to be watched, shopping to be done, abs to be stared at, and chocolate to be eaten. You’ve got a busy few weeks ahead of you 🙂
