'Wait for what you deserve,' as women we need to empower each other. If you have been mistreated by a man/boy, even if he makes you happy please realise that if you spend more time being sad or confused, it's time to leave. You deserve to be happy all the time, at least I do - he never realised that.
So based on extensive research — that is, getting dumped and talking to friends who have been dumped — I've compiled a list of things to do in the weeks and months after a breakup. If you're in the same boat, turn this list into a day-by-day challenge, and we guarantee you'll feel a little better by the 30th day. Of course you won't entirely feel put back together — these things take time — but they are steps in the right direction!
