Breaking up is not only hard to do. It can feel like pure torture. Especially if you weren’t the one to end the relationship.

It’s one thing to vent to your friends or watch reruns of Love Jones and Brown Sugar in the privacy of your own Netflix subscription. But if it’s been more than a couple of months and you still feel just like you did the day the both of you ended things, this article is for you.
