To celebrate the publication of our first-ever book, The Frisky 30-Day Breakup Guide, we’re re-running the original series that inspired it, and having writer Maude Standish bravely road test the book’s expanded tasks and tips. So follow along, chart your own progress, and find out everything else you need to know to forget he-who-shall-not-be-named!
Make Your “Breakup Bible”
Remember how you told all of your friends about your breakup? Chances are, you got a slew of voice mails, texts, and emails offering support or telling you what they really thought of that jerk. It might be hard to hear, but it’s going to come in handy.Type out or cut and paste any particularly insightful things your friends said to you into a document. This Word file is to become your Breakup Bible. Print it out and stuff one in your purse, paste one to your bathroom mirror, and place one on your nightstand. If you want to bust out the hole punch and stick one into a three-ring binder to make it more official, knock yourself out. Any time you feel like contacting your ex, read your Bible. No doubt you’ll read something from a friend that will prevent you from picking up your cell or crafting that perfectly worded text message that you hope will bring him back to you.
