At first, you may rant with friends about what an idiot they were or how they were truly your soulmate. Then maybe you start seeking advice from them and family on what you should do. Should you try to win him back? Or, if it’s for the best, how do you truly move on?
While friends and family can comfort you and have helpful advice, your feelings may last longer than they’re willing to listen for. Of course, a good friend should be there for you. But sometimes, there comes a time when they’ve given all their advice and you still feel like crap. What then?
Well, that’s when a breakup advice blog can come in handy. These can give you unbiased advice on what you’re going through and guide you how to come out on the other side.
