No matter how your relationship came to an end, it is over. This is not the time for you to become the ex-GF from hell. Taking the high road means a happier and healthier life for you. Put that grenade away. Living well is truly the best revenge.
Here’s how to be a good ex-girlfriend (even if he doesn’t deserve it!):
CUT social media connections.
He was not just the love of your life. He was your Facebook friend, your Tumblr buddy, your favorite re-tweeter and your main Pinterest. When a relationship is over it is time to un-friend and un-follow. The temptation to e-stalk is too great if you’re receiving daily Instagram photos of every date your ex goes on.
GIVE yourself closure.
Here’s the deal. The only place where we’re guaranteed closure is in the movies. Your ex owes you nothing. Move on.
RELEASE family ties.
His sisters are in your phone’s Top 5 circle and you love his mom’s peach cobbler. They are as broken up about your break up as you are. Unfortunately, part of life sometimes means stepping away. When you break up with someone it often means breaking up with their family as well.
RESPECT his new relationships.
We don’t have to like the fact that our exes find someone new to love, but we should respect it. Life goes on. Sure, sometimes it seems like an ex BF can rebound while we’re still licking our wounds but the pain will pass.
DON’T stalk under any circumstance!
The number one rule for being a good ex-girlfriend is thou shalt not stalk. It’s over. Move forward and be awesome. You don’t wanna be that ex that everyone crosses the street to avoid.
Relationships will come and go. If you’re always looking back you can’t see your amazing future!
