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!
If there has ever been a chance for you to act both badass and selfless, this is it. If you’re healthy enough to give blood, be happy for that alone, and then go save a life. Eat and drink plenty afterward so you don’t pass out.
If you’re not so good with the needles, throw a bunch of canned goods and/or old clothes (that scarf your ex gave you, maybe?) into the back of your car and haul it all down to your local food pantry and/or Salvation Army. Sadly, lots of people have it worse than you. You already knew that, but this is a tiny reminder.
