I found this article online and thought it was at least partially helpful. Some of the advice listed really applies! (link: http://lolzparade.com/relationships/how-to-get-over-a-breakup?page=15)
#15 Don't Wallow in Grief: Sad songs only lead to crying jags and wondering what might have been. The first step to healing is not letting them hurt your heart any more than it already is.
#14 Get up and dance!: Grab your friends and go out for a night on the town and shake what you got! Just remember to shake it alone, you don't need any more complications right now!
#13 Go shoe shopping: It's amazing how a gorgeous new pair of shoes can lift your mood (or two or three pairs for that matter!)
#12 Join a gym: Surpress the urge to bury your sorrows in a bucket of ice cream. Instead, go out and join a gym. It not only gives you something to do, it helps you feel better about yourself.
#11 Learn something new: Join a cooking or art class, or learn how to do something you've always wanted to do. You'll be affirming yourself and yes, you'll be putting yourself out there to meet new people. It's better than becoming a hermit!
#10 Listen to some uplifting music: Music has the power to change your mood -- for good or bad. Find music that lifts you up and inspires you!
#9 Get away for awhile: It's amazing what even a weekend away can do for your state of mind! Schedule a trip with some friends and go have a little fun.
#8 Volunteer: Volunteer at a local animal or homeless shelter. Instead of dwelling on your own pain, you'll be helping those in need, and that feels great!
#7 Go Shopping! Scared to wear half your wardrobe since it reminds you of them? Go out and have a little retail therapy, it really does help.
#6 Visit a spa: A day of pampering can really help you feel better, body and soul.
#5 Resist the urge to cyberstalk: Breakups today are totally different than they used to be. Don't cyberstalk, it's just hurting you! Unfriend them on Facebook and unfollow them on Twitter. Trust us, it's for the best!
#4 Remove painful reminders: We know, we know, you'll always treasure that little gift. Bottom line? If it reminds you of them and is causing you pain, toss it. In six months you won't even remember it existed.
#3 Discover something new every day: Make a goal to discover something new in your neighborhood every day -- whether it's a little store, or a new restaurant. It not only gives you something to look forward to, it helps take your mind off the pain.
#2 Make a change: Always wanted to do your hair or nails differently, but didn't because "they" didn't like it? Here's your chance! Have a little fun, experiment and get a little crazy. It's all about revealing the new and improved you! K, maybe not a faux-hawk, but you get the point.
#1 Move on: They're out of your life, and you're ready for the next adventure! Resist the urge to text or call, and delete their number. It's best to make a clean break and start new. You've got a lot to look forward to!
