six ways

six ways to get over (or just try and cope with) a horrible breakup.

1. talk to your best friend for as long as possible on the phone (never underestimate girl power in a situation like this).

2. eat your weight in your favorite comfort food.

3. don't stifle your emotions.

4. realize, as cliche as it sounds, that time will make things easier.

5. go flirt with that one waiter over at that one cafe that you once saw and thought was cute. you know the one.

6. know that there are people out there that will always love you. for who you are.

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

My photo
Portland, OR, United States
hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
