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!
Sign Up For A Class
Even if the last time you were in an extracurricular class was when you were six years old and clutching the barre at Miss Lillycrumpet’s School of Ballet, you will sign up for something today. Feel like knocking someone out? Boxing lessons. Crave solitude? Sewing (you don’t even have to have your own machine). You’re not doing this as a step in a silly self-help book. You’re doing this to fill up some time, meet some people who are not your idiot ex, and maybe, possibly, find a hobby you like. Even if you never pick up another guitar (or camera, or French textbook) for as long as you live, you will have put yourself out there — even if failure is possible, if not probable. That shows some serious strength and character, lady. Enjoy that feeling.
