The thing about a break-up is that it’s kinda similar to a death. You pictured yourself married and having kids and the whole thing. So you’ve got this past that you experienced and this future you’ve foreseen, and now all of that is gone. And the thing about a death is, you have to give yourself permission to mourn it. Some days you’re just going to get sad and that’s it. And it’s okay to be sad and not try to orchestrate or manipulate your own emotions.
