    2. Watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens.


    Another return to beloved old characters with a bunch of next-generation young'uns and a new chapter. Gotta get your feels our somehow, and this is such a good proxy.

    Because while you might not be breaking up with Harry Potter, he's definitely ghosting you, so you might as well let the feelings out somehow.

    9. Hell, just listen to Lemonade on repeat.

    Pro-Tip: This is also advice for any other life question you might have!

    10. Post cryptically about it on social media.

    "Feeling gloomy today." "There's something deep inside of me longing to be somewhere else, but I just can't get there. Maybe someday." You get the picture.

    11. Watch old episodes of Gilmore Girls.

    This doesn't have the same logic behind it as Force Awakens. I just find Gilmore Girls very comforting.

    12. Squeeze a stress ball.

    This is what they were made for.

    13. Listen to the Hamilton cast album and relate too much to Aaron Burr.

    *Aaron Burr voice* I'm not willing to wait for it but I have to so I'm gonna pretend I am.

    Maybe one day we'll all see Cursed Child! Maybe not! Who knows! The world is an existential mess!
