Thread Name: BS: Breaking Up is Hard to Do_Redux
Subject: RE: Breaking up is hard to do
Cry. Shout. Be angry.   Break things (old crockery or flowerpots are very satisfying and cheap). Have a drink or three if you like. Talk to your real friends. Get on with other things you really enjoy with people you really like. Sing, even if, no, especially if you don't feel like it - I'm convinced it helps.   Keep doing this until you start to feel better.

It takes time: After six years I'm on reasonably good terms with my ex, but reading this thread and writing this has brought back some of the emotions I felt when it happened.

Oh - and DON'T, whatever you do, read Jude the Obscure. It set me back six months - and I gave up halfway through!

PM if you like
