So, you're still making gagging noises when you see his photos pop on your feed. He's just posting a picture of his Saturday coffee, but it still ignites anger in your heart, because "who does he think he is?" And "that mug is stupid."
Well, if you're tired of being annoyed with him and angry with his existence-- I have some steps that I can share with you, from one woman scorned to another. First comes love, then comes anger, now comes blunt indifference.
Nothing hurts more than the sixth sense pit in his stomach he will get when you finally let him go. He will instantly send a text in panic, but it's too late, you're gone. His number already doesn't show up when he texts.
First off, delete him from your socials. I know, cliché, but it's healthy when he's making you unreasonably angry every time he tweets about turning up on a Saturday night. You think he's stupid now, remember?
Instead, follow an attractive model and stalk them instead. When you're wondering what your ex is up to, stop and think about said hot guy. What's he doing? Has he tweeted recently?
Next, you're gonna find a sweet post from a couple you know, or a celebrity couple. You know, the posts where the boyfriend romantically describes the woman he's with, detailing their first meeting and all the ways she's special to him.
Now, save this post. Every time you think of him, go to this post and read it. Remember how he could never give you that. And if you think he still could, think again.
Now you've gotta realize why you're angry in the first place. You could be angry because you feel duped; you believed in a promise of love and commitment and it was ripped away.
You could be angry because he did something awful that broke your heart and the relationship. Something that you can't forgive. You could be angry because you wasted so much time on someone so unworthy. Or it could be for all of these reasons.
That's perfectly normal.
You should be a little angry. Any strong emotion means something made an impact on your life- whether the impact is exciting and positive or negative and hurtful -it matters. He might have been a mistake, but now your anger will help you not to make the same mistake again.
Remember to be happy. When you feel angry, breathe and do what makes you happy. For me, I like listening to my Barbara Streisand records or demanding all my friends meet me for coffee stat like we're spies having an emergency meeting. Whatever makes you feel good, do it.
The only bright side to the end of a relationship is the freedom that comes from being single. You've probably heard someone say, "don't worry about him, he's not worth it." As if it so easy to stop the endless worrying. It's not.
However, if you're gonna move on to better things you have to let go of this old, annoying thing.
And that's the best reason there is.
