BITCH WHAT DO YOU KNOW?(GETTING RID OF YOUR EX)Bitch what do you know is my series on giving advice,last week's topic was on cheating.This week's is about letting go of the ass from your past.
The story starts like this:It was a rainy night,he called you crying and telling you that he needs to see you.You go to his place to find out why is the person that broke your heart two months ago calling you.Then,you realize he's called you crying at least once a week since you've broke up.This time,his newest girlfriend has been making life miserable for hm and he needed comforting and your stupid ass went running.No! Let's not let the ex get the best of us. I've compiled some tips for making a clean break from Mr. X.
1- Take him off that pedestal-Don't build him up into something great. Do Not gaze lovingly at pictures of him. Don't jump to answer his e-mail or phone calls. And definitely don't go out of your way for him. He no longer deserves preferential treatment.
2- Get closure...-It's essential to definitively end any hopes of reconciliation between the two of you. He owes you the courtesy of telling you: "I never loved you. I don't love you now. We'll never get back together." Let me tap your forehead my sister/brother you will now begin to heal!
3-No More Contact!-Don't beg or cry. Don't drunk-dial. Don't write an e-mail. Don't send packages or CDs. Don't dedicate a song on the radio.They will find you if they want to. And even if you can talk your way back into their arms, it's only a temporary reprieve. He already knows you want him back, and he does not give a fuck. Take that as a sign.
4-Avoid her friends & the places she hangs- Find new places to hang out for the first few months and make new friends, if necessary. If any of your friends insist on maintaining contact with him, you may have to shut them out, too -- at least temporarily. After some time has passed, you should go back to living normally, and that means hanging out at these places and reconnecting with traitiors,,,I mean, mutual friends.
5-Sleep with another guy immediately- Take shelter in the arms of another. the rebound is the shit! Plenty of heartbroken people go this route and for a very good reason -- it makes you feel better, even if it's only temporary. So go out there and feel better about yourself!
6-Throw away anything that reminds you of her-Pictures, gifts, clothing, letters, and e-mail,get it out of your living area, or at least out of your sight. If that means giving away roughly half of your wardrobe to get rid of the memory of her, so be it. As a rule, if the object makes you think of them, discard it. This can save your sanity. Remember Waiting to Exhale?
7-Hang out with your friends-Let your peeps give you a reality check on how your ex wasn't all that to begin with, and that there are more fish in the sea. Hanging with friends can go a long way towards getting your head straight.
8-Don't try to get your stuff back- Unless it's a diamond ring or something that's one-of-a-kind, you're better off not contacting them to get it back. DVDs, clothes, your extra toothbrush... just let 'em go. They're only possessions. Is it really worth the pain of being in their presence just to reclaim a pair of boxer shorts? Don't exchange your dignity for menial belongings.The Ex would love to tell that story to the new date.
9-Remember the bad times-If you start to feel weak,think about all the times that The Ex embarassed you in front of your friends or blamed you for shit you didn't do or never complimented you on your new hairstyle but made sure to comment when it didn't look good.
10-Seduce somebody he's jealous of-this has always been a fave of mine.Could you imagine walking into a party with the guy that your ex thought was so fucking hot and they hated them for it?Priceless.
