Going through a break-up is difficult. Whether you chose to end the relationship or you were the person to get broken up with, it isn’t easy. Even if the relationship lasted for a month or five years, the sting of it ending can be really painful, so it's important to focus on you so you can get back to being the best version of yourself in your new-found single life.
There are many ways that people say work to get over a break-up - go for a night out with your friends, head to the gym to release any anger or distract yourself by swiping on dating apps. These aren't terrible ideas, but nothing beats curling up on the couch and relaxing in front of some relatable movies that will not only cheer you up, but also help to make you feel less alone because you can see others thriving after they’ve come out of a relationship.
