    The Ultimate Breakup Survival Guide

    We know this isn’t exactly news, but we’re going to say it anyway:

    Breaking up can be hard. 

    That’s right—hard, confusing, exhausting, dramatic, etc. Need we go on?

    Probably not, because we’ve all either seen or felt it before. And while a little time and faith can heal all wounds, it doesn’t hurt to throw some fast-forward action into the mix. Hence—the ultimate breakup survival kit. We believe that when life hands you lemons (you know, the kind that doesn’t always open the door for you), there’s only one thing to do: Forget making lemonade. Go buy some chocolate.

    So, to get you or a friend started on the path to personal recovery, we’ve laid out a few fave ingredients for an award-winning (well, it should be) breakup survival kit below.

    1. Any movie that He-That-We-Do-Not-Speak-Of would have been likely to say this to:

    Preferably of the rom-com and/or tearjerker variety. We personally recommend:

    2. Oh, and since He-That-We-Do-Not-Speak-Of won’t be joining you…behold—the boyfriend pillow.

    3. Ice cream. Ice cream for days. 

    The longer the name, the better. Here are a few flavors that probably wouldn’t even make it into our freezers…because our spoons are closer.

     4. Speaking of ice cream, these exist:

    Yes…that is a sweater. For your ice cream.

     

    5. Fun and vibrant nail polish. Especially if you look down at your nails (yes, it’s time) and you’re kind of like…

    Oh, and feel free to reward yourself for all the trouble with a dainty and affordable set of midi rings, courtesy of Etsy.

    6. A tear-free breakup playlist. Nothing sappy here, just a combination of the classics that will have you looking and feeling a lot like this: 

    The playlist:

    • “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele
    • “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child
    • “Stronger” by Mandisa
    • “Learning to Breathe” by Switchfoot
    • “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” by Taylor Swift
    • “Jesus Take the Wheel” by Carrie Underwood
    • “Mama’s Broken Heart” by Miranda Lambert
    • “(There’s Gotta Be) More to Life” by Stacie Orrico
    • “Have Your Way” by Britt Nicole
    • “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor

     

    7. You know what looks GREAT with a pair of headphones? This mug, full of hot cocoa:

    And this one:

    8. But if you do nothing else…

    9. And of course, don’t forget the basics:

    In short?

    You’re allowed to be disappointed. You’re even allowed to be a little angry—but only for some time. Because the sooner you remember that you are exceptional, that you are beautiful and that you are strong, the closer you are to this:

    Well, something like that!
