As we approach the end of the year, we go through many rituals to symbolize leaving the negative aspects of the passing year in our rear view mirror, while looking towards the greener pasture of the new year. I’ve heard too much blood clot crying and complaining about broken hearts, “ninjas who aint sh*t”, and reminiscing over you, my GOD past relationships. Some of you might even contemplate returning to an ex, and you KNOW how I feel about that topic! I hate to see my friends and e-peoples in this hurtful spot, so I got a few ways we can get you back on your feet, and help you to cease from dwelling on the past and move towards the future:
Hit The Gym
Maybe you feel unpretty (word to TLC). Maybe you want the ex to rue the day they ever dissed you. Maybe you want to reinforce your original decision to break off a relationship. No matter what the situation, working out is a great way to get over a break-up. It’s funny what you can accomplish when you focus rage, anger, and disappointment, into an intense workout regimen! When you have a workout plan, you gain a focus and determination to meet and exceed a goal. This focus will translate into all areas of your life! You can feel depressed when a break up occurs, and this can cause you to gain or lose weight (both of which are unhealthy), or suffer other medical issues. You should workout to maintain a balance, lose weight, gain lean muscle mass, and improve your overall cardiovascular health. Plus you know when it gets hot outside and you show the fruits of your labor, business will pick up! You can always look to Streetztalk.Net for my weekly fitness updates for motivation. I put myself out there to motivate and to stick to my own script. I hope I can help you do the same.
Sometime’s I feel I got to get away… and when you end a relationship, sometimes that’s the #1 thing you can do to feel better. Whether you venture to another state/province, the Caribbean, or another continent, it’s always good to escape. You gain an appreciation for life when you have new experiences abroad. You can relax, forget about your life for a few days, and experience all that your travel destination has to offer. Hell, I don’t care if you have to hop in a car and take a 2 hour roadtrip, you have to get away and clear your head. Some of the best experiences I’ve ever had were on vacation and on roadtrips. You need those friends that can have a good time whether they are princes or paupers, and they shine during vacations. I think there a few cures for a broken heart that can surpass the beaches of a island country, with beautiful women, weather, and the best food ever! Get your pasaporte and your itinerary, and jet set that ‘feel sorry for self” attitude away quickly!
Party, Party, PARTY
Understand that while you were bunned up, the world didn’t stop rotating on its axis. Life went on before your relationship, during, and *you guessed right* will continue to go on after you. Besides, you’re better off without them, stop actin’ up and let’s hit the club! You must utilize your weapon of choice (Patron, Hennessy, Weed, Ciroc Obama etc.) to the best of your ability in order to achieve a sufficient level of party time! I have friends who will play damage control when dudes break up with their girlfriends, and will make sure that we hit the town. Take them out to a club anyone; Strip, Bar, Lounge, or Cabaret! There’s no need to sit at home and sulk over lost ones, when you can goto a club, hear some good music, and enjoy yaself – Rick James. If you want a laugh, watch your newly single friends try to integrate back into “the real world”. It’s similar to watching your 5 yr. old brother attempt to ride a bike and fall off. Continuously. Hey, that’s what friends are for, right?
Take em to church!
Whether you believe in a higher power, you meditate, or if you dabble in the mystic arts, looking for spiritual healing is a calming and introspective way to heal from emotional distress. I know I can always look to God for the answers, and pray on tough decisions, the good and the bad occurring in my life. Getting over someone you care about will take a complete healing of mind, body, and soul. None of the 3 can be neglected. So try to look to within the spirit as well as your own characteristics, to gain further clarity and peace with your situation.
Yes I said it and I’m dead ass serious! There’s nothing better than calling up a “What if” person and making it do what it do. What’s a “What if” person? Well, that’s the individual that you know was feeling you when you were committed, but because you’re not Tiger Woods you didn’t want to pull the #swindle on your bf/gf, you didn’t hit them off. Sex can be the most liberating, exhilarating experience for someone who needs to get back on their feet. Sex is one of the best ways to relieve stress, and with all the high blood pressure and other ailments plaguing us, a brother has to look out for you right? Extra points if your ex hates that What if individual (hey I’m a Scorpio, don’t judge me!). It’s almost the end of 2009, so end it with a bang (what I did there… did you see it?)
I’m sure these aren’t the top 5 ways, so let’s add to this list. Do you find these methods effective? Let’s leave the BS in the past and press on to 2010 and a new decade!
