Are you feeling like your world has been upended and nothing is as it should be? This is common among those that are dealing with the aftermath of a break up and still searching for the best break up survival solutions to have at their fingertips.

Many people in this situation turn to temporary fixes that ultimately cause more harm than good. Some of the common "fixes" that people use to work through the pain of being dumped are: alcohol, drugs, and members of the opposite sex. Bad decisions are made in the heat of the moment. There are better ways to work through your feelings.

These are some of the best break up survival tips you'll have the good fortune to come across. Use them well.

  1. Surround yourself with shiny happy people. Believe me I know they can be the most obnoxious sight on the planet when you're in the throws of heartache and misery. They can also be your best friends in disguise if you give them the chance. These people are usually the people pleaser types of people and they'll want to try to make you shiny and happy too. There's no harm in letting them have their way with you up to a point. It might even do you a little bit of good.

  2. Take a close look a the blessings in your life. There's an old (really old) song about counting your blessings instead of sheep. I bet you can't count all the blessings in your life without falling asleep. But you know what makes this one of the best break up survival tips? When you fall asleep thinking about blessings instead of thinking about your pain you'll sleep better, have safer dreams, and be much better prepared to face the following day.

  3. Learn to look forward to being single. Just think about all the reasons to enjoy being single. You can turn the music up as loud as your neighbors can stand. You can stay up all night playing video games. You can let the dishes pile up in the sink. You can even wear the same shirt two days in a row and no one will say anything (unless the smell has people wondering what hit them that is). Ladies you can own the television remote for the first time in goodness knows how long. These things may not seem like much but they are part of the best break up survival tips for a reason. They work.
