breakup box

Breakups suck, but moving on is the light at the end of the tunnel. I've written about that process here. To aid in the process of moving on it's typical to eat a tub of Ben and Jerry's ice cream while spritzing whipped cream on your tongue while watching The Notebook. It's a lot of emotional multi-tasking. Then you bash on your ex. Then you regret the sweets and hit the gym...hard. You're convinced you'll  get a body that will win your ex back, as if losing five pounds will miraculously fix all the problems in that ol' relationship. Then you drink...a lot. Dressing up and going out with the girls while prowling for new meat is sure to fix that broken heart. Right?

Let's skip all that binge eating. Let's skip that two hour run at the gym. Let's skip that nasty hangover. Let's just feel. Feel that sucky pain. Cry those salty tears. Let your emotions get the best of you. It's okay to let it all out. It's okay to be human.

My pretty friend, Erika, is one heck of a human. (Check out her Tumblr). She made up a breakup box for someone who recently had their little heart crushed. I loved the idea. She put in some yummy treats, inspiring books, a wine glass, a "grow-your-own-prince," a razor (to avoid becoming a wooly mammoth), and oodles more. How sweet is she?

Sometimes we need to be reminded that we are cared for, especially when we lose a love. So if you know someone who is going through a breakup then try putting together a "breakup box" for them. It will probably mend their heart more than you know.


  1. That is an awesome idea! I needed this a few weeks ago. Break ups suck, but you're right. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and it does help just to cry and let your emotions out.

  2. this is the cutest thing ever. The first girl you mentioned, yepp that was me to a tee! I was laughing when describing her, but the second one seems much better!


  3. I have just finished cycling through the sweets, gym, and too much partying phases. I'm finally coming out on the other end and acting like a real human again haha.

    I love the idea of a break up box. I'm going to remember this next time a friend goes through a break up.

    I never thought that I could be this wealthy after all I've been through trying to meet ends and take care of my family, I used to play lottery but has never be lucky to win until I saw some comments online how he had helped a lot of people win, after first I didn't believe him but still I gave it a try, I wrote him a message on email after few hours he replied back so I told him what I want he assured me success. he also told me what I should do and I did all he requested from me, after some hours he gave me the lucky numbers and showed me where to play so i did as instructed to my biggest surprise I won 27 million pounds (Euromillions). Now I'm rich and happy all thanks to Dr Benjamin for the help, I'm nothing without you. if you need his help to win you can reach him via his email drbenjaminlottospell711@gmail.com and his whatsapp +13344539570 or visit his website Drbenjamintemple.com

  5. I've been a carpenter for the past 18 years and playing the Lottery has always been my thing and my Wife supports me but winning big funds is always an issue. My Wife is quite good at surfing the internet and she came across an AD of DR AMBER who helps people that believes in his work. My Wife & I emailed him for help to win the Lottery and guess what!!! He did a spell prayer and gave us some digits to play the Lottery. We did as he instructed and we were notified after 10 days that we'd won $245,600,000 MILLION DOLLARS from the NY LOTTERY POWERBALL that we played. We can't really explain the feeling we had when we heard the amount we WON for we were so happy. Everything seemed like a dream for some minutes till we realized that it was REALITY" LOL". Anyways, we are here to appreciate DR AMBER and also to share to you all the wonderful experiences we had with him.
