Dear Dish-It: My Heart Hurts

Dear Dish-it,


I had to break up with my boyfriend today because he was hurting me. And it's not like I feel sick, it's just my heart hurts. I can't stop crying, and I'm wondering if I was wrong to let him go. How do I get over him???


Crushed


Dear Crushed,


Try as you might, breakups are bound to happen. And whether you're the dumper or the dumpee, it's gonna hurt. But it IS possible to get over a broken heart - promise! Here's how …

Throw a (Brief) Pity Party

I'm not gonna lie. The first day of a breakup is a huge, honkin' disaster. It's crucial to get those icky emotions out of your system, and the only way to do that is by experiencing them. So, for one day only, hustle home from school and dive under the covers. Chow your way through a carton of ice cream. Call your BFF and talk about how wrecked you feel. Now, bawl yourself to sleep.


Make a List!Make a List!

Figure it Out

Once the shock wears off, you're gonna feel mixed up about why your relationship ended. Did you do something wrong? Was there something you were supposed to say or do to stop it from happening? Don't blame yourself! To stop agonizing over every doubt-filled detail, write down five things you didn't like about dating him. Maybe he sneered at your jokes or checked out other girls. Instead of dwelling on what you could have done differently, be honest about his faults and shortcomings.

Pamper Yourself

There's nothing like a bad breakup to cause a girl to forget how gorg she is. Reality check: you are totally foxy. To get back in touch with your hotness, tell your BFF to bring her makeup case to your casa first thing after school. Then spend the afternoon enjoying a full-on makeover. Polish your nails, gloss up your lips and get yourself totally babed out.

Get Back Out There

After a breakup it's easy to feel like there'll never be another guy in your life. It's normal to feel this way, but stop it! Go to that party tonight and talk to at least three guys. No rebounding - just focus on some nice convos so you'll see that boy really are still into you. Don't worry, there'll be tons of dating fun in your future.

You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.

If that fails, tell another trusted adult, like your mother. I'm sure someone you're close to would do their best to get justice. This is a major problem and it's a shame no one's done anything to help. ​No one listens to me anyway but my friends
