Breakups + Self-Care 💔

What I say:

  • I love and accept myself exactly as I am
  • I approve of myself
  • My heart has boundless strength
  • I am brave to love
  • It is safe to be vulnerable

What I do:

  • Cry. Howl. Wail (currently trying not to though as I’m in a coffee shop).
  • Write songs (allowing crying breaks, of course)
  • Let myself be upset
  • Let myself miss him
  • Envision him happy and wish him well
  • Call myself beautiful, amazing, lovely (whichever fits) anytime I look in a mirror

What hurts:

  • Seeing the Valentine’s special at our favourite vegan restaurant on Instagram, knowing neither of us will eat it
  • Hearing his mam’s ringtone on someone else’s phone
  • Knowing I’ll probably never pet his cat again
  • The fact that every fucking song about love or breakups was written specifically to make me feel shit (and that doesn’t leave me with very much music to listen to)
  • I don’t have anyone to shave for anymore
  • That knowing it’s for the best doesn’t make it any easier
  • That I never told him I loved him
  • That I can’t be angry at him because he’s done nothing wrong

What I don’t know:

  • If I’ll ever see or hear from him again
  • If I’ll ever meet anyone that can compare to him ever again

What I know:

  • It will get easier
  • In a few months, I’ll be back to myself and enjoy being single
  • I’m more productive when I’m single
  • What’s best for both of us is being single
  • His happiness is more important to me than my need for him
  • I’m so blessed to have had him in my life
  • If we were meant to end up together, our dreams would coincide
  • I need to be with someone willing to follow me wherever I go with my music, or be single
  • I’m going out on Saturday and I’m determined to have a good night
  • I’m strong enough to deal with all of it


Does anyone have any other breakup self-care tips or thoughts? Please let me know. Thanks for reading.
