5. Don't bottle things up – talk it all out with your friends. But know when enough is enough.

You can talk about it for the rest of your life but it won't change anything. And talking about things too much can end up being unproductive. It just brings back memories you'd be better off forgetting. Know when it's time to take a deep breath and tell yourself, "enough now."

6. Wine is also a good option. Forget your ex by drinking all the wine.

And chocolate. And ice cream. And whatever the hell else you want to eat or drink, because after having your heart ripped out and stamped on, you are clearly entitled to treat yo'self.

7. Never rush into trying to be friends.

Let the dust settle, have six months at the very least without contact – let yourself heal before attempting a friendship. That's if they even deserve to have you in their lives.


10. But it's even better to channel all those emotions in a positive way. Something creative, or something fun JUST FOR YOU.

If a certain singer hadn't broken Taylor Swift's heart, we wouldn't have 1989. And what a crappy world that'd be.

11. Focus on your career because after all, success is the best form of revenge.

"Industry experts predicted 1989 would sell 650k first week. You went and bought 1.287 million albums."


13. Don't obsess over what went wrong in the hope of closure. Spoiler: closure is stupid.

Meeting your ex for a post-mortem of your relationship and breakup will never make you feel better. Accepting it, no matter how hard, will.
