They’ve got you covered.
The brutal feeling of a breakup, no matter the circumstances, is always awful. You can’t do anything — you can’t eat and all you want to do is sleep the pain away.
It feels like the heaviest weight is resting on your shoulders and you can’t seem to ever get rid of it. There’s a lump in your throat that is constantly making it hard to speak. And let’s not even get STARTED about the tears. So. Many. Tears.
It really, truly feels like you will NEVER feel better.
Except you will. Eventually.
You may feel like you’re the only person in the world feeling this pain. And although your hurt is valid and real, there are many, MANY people who have gone what you’re going through and survived it.
So, you’re going to survive this. Even if it feels like every day lasts a thousand years, and every thought in your brain somehow takes you back to them, you are going to survive this. Look! You’re ALREADY surviving it! Just by sitting up, and letting yourself feel the pain, you’re starting the healing process.
This is only the beginning, but it only gets easier from here.
So where should you start?
One of the best ways to remind yourself that everything is going to be okay is by hearing it from people who have been at the lowest of the lows but came out feeling better than before.
We look to celebrities for fashion inspiration, motivation, and understanding. Celebrities go through some of the HARDEST breakups; the entire world is watching everything they do and weighing in on every decision they make. They have it hard when it comes to love, which makes them PRETTY freakin’ strong.
The good thing is, these celebs know that their advice will reach millions of people, so they share their personal stories and healing processes to help YOU. These celebrities are here to help you. Whether they know it or not, they are creating a huge influence, and it can be seriously helpful.
We watch these breakups happen, and sometimes we even feel hurt by them ourselves! But these strong celebrities survived, moved on, found love again, AND learned how to love themselves.
If they can do it, so can you.
