20 Hilariously Effective Ways To Forget About Your Ex.

Break ups are like leaving a job. Sometimes you quit and in other cases you might've been let go, but you can't dwell on the pain or look down on yourself as a pathetic little thing. While crying can be a cathartic experience, you were made to do more than just that all day.

Get back out there, and by that we don't necessarily mean you've got to get back in the dating game. Rediscover yourself. Step outside, get some air, listen to really good music (or really bad music, if it helps), and focus your energy on what will help you grow. In time, you'll learn to accept whatever changes are to come, and little by little, you'll learn to live with this newly independent you. The truth is, you just might love it.

There's no telling when it gets better, but what we do know is that there are some things that'll help you along the way.
