How I Finally Got Over My Ex By Journaling


By Haley Marguerite

About a month ago my ex-boyfriend dumped me and it was the worst feeling I had ever felt in my entire life.

I had no idea what to do, how to think, I couldn’t even eat or get a good night’s sleep.

I felt so lost and so hopeless. My days felt so long and meaningless.

Almost every day, every minute of the day, I would think of something that reminded me of him and bawl my eyes out. And the worst part of it all was that it would only be 1 pm and I had another nine hours before I was off to bed.

But I didn’t feel like doing anything but sleeping and crying.

My family and friends would constantly call to check in on me making sure my mental status was sane. I assured them I was okay and that it was just my way of “getting over a breakup.”

I knew deep down I was wasting away my days just sitting at home thinking about him crying and crying and crying.

It really was so pointless. He broke up with me and there was no going back and trying to fix things. Plus, you don’t want to be with someone who doesn’t want you. Yes, you know?

After almost two weeks of doing nothing with my life, I decided to give my therapist a call. I wanted someone to chat with and I didn’t want to feel like a burden to my friends and family, as I was calling them almost every minute of the day crying my eyes out.

It was tough. So I called up my therapist. On the phone call, she had suggested I write my ex-boyfriend a letter. I thought she was insane.
