Are you over your ex?

 

 

A study published in the Journal of Neurophysiology suggests that the trauma of breaking up can be severe because rejection of love affects primitive areas of the brain associated with motivation, reward, and addiction. This study explains the painful feelings that go along with an attitude of withdrawal and all that follows, such as extreme behavior.

 

Here are some ways to heal wounds and feel better after breaking up, along with some tips on what to do next.

It takes time to get over it You have to stop thinking that things are going to work out right away. Give yourself some time to recover from the loss of a friendship and a partner. It’s better to cry now than to try to avoid feelings that are inevitable.

 

Not seriously engaging after a breakup There is a difference between enjoying your new status which is in itself unique (make sure you are safe and protected!) Being emotional with someone new and being committed immediately in another relationship can prove to be deceptive. You may think you have a good relationship with someone, but now is not the time.

 

Get rid of memories left by your old relationship Whether it’s photos, cards, letters or gifts, if you don’t want to throw them away, give them to a friend who will keep them for the time being. Don’t be in a hurry to get rid of everything, you might want to look back later and wish you had some memories. Keep a cool head!

“Don’t look now, but that’s my ex over there.”
Surely I’m not the only one who takes “don’t look now” as “there’s no better time than now.” I looked.
“Bad, Ali!” Another slap to my arm. “Bad, bad, bad Ali! Have you no self control?”

“a) he’s late.
b) he’s acting like an asshole and blowing me off.
c)he’s gotten into a horrible car crash that’s left dead.

The most likely answer is A. (We went to prom together, and the limo had to wait in his driveway for half an hour. At the end of the night, we got charged for an extra hour. He- read: his parents- paid for it, but still.)”

“He assaulted the man with a psychic wave. “You are a cockroach.” In his inebraited state, Cody had no resistance at all to a vampire mind control. He fell to the floor and scurried around the foyer on all fours. “I am a cockroach” he muttered in a squeaky voice. “Hmm, about time you figured that one out,” Fidelia steped back as he brushed against her long skirt.”
