Getting through a first breakup is like braving a storm; there is a hurricane of new emotions and sudden darkness where there once was light. But you have the ability to stand up in this storm, and you won’t get blown away because you’re stronger than you can ever imagine. Once you realize this, you’ll adjust your sails and direct your focus elsewhere; toward your schoolwork, yourself, or friends and family. You’ll find that you’re in control of your life and how bad it gets, not any ex who broke your heart.
