Moving on after a really bad breakup is not the easiest thing to do—that's why you'll need a lot of help and advice from the people around you.

The movie My Ex and Whys is a film every girl going through a breakup can definitely relate to. Cali (Liza Soberano) is trying to find forgiveness and healing after dumping Gio (Enrique Gil), and the people who are close to her and care about her were there to help her get through the rough patch.

From her mother (Ara Mina), her ever-reliable titas (Arlene Muhlach and Cai Cortez), to her trusted guy BFF (Ryan Bang), she had people remind her just how important friends and family are. So here are the people who can knock some sense into you when YOU need help moving on (We're sure some names have already popped up in your head!):

  1. The Ever-Supportive Gal Pal

No matter what you do, she's got your back. When you got dumped, she was there to be a shoulder to cry on; plus, there were no judgements when you finished that pint of ice cream all by yourself.

  1. The "Real na Real" Friend

She's not afraid to call you out when you're thinking of making a really bad decision, like drunk calling your ex-boyfriend (sounds familiar?) or when you're being stubborn about forgetting him even though it's been forever since the breakup. Nonetheless, she loves you to bits and just wants the best for you.

  1. The Sassy Tita

She never fails to give you witty advice, whether you like it or not. And although she can be harsh sometimes, she's someone you can depend on when you're stuck in a rut. Her favorite line? "Papunta ka pa lang, pabalik na ako."

  1. The Kunsintidor

She and your "real na real" friend are always bickering; she wants you to go and take risks while the other wants you to be wise and think before you act. Either way, surely both want you to find happiness, whether that's with a guy or not.

  1. The Resident Amiga

Whenever you have problems and you can't run to the people you usually go to, she's there to give you meaningful advice! It could be about love and relationships or issues at work, but whatever it is, she'll be more than willing to lend you a listening ear and on a really bad day, a comforting hug.

  1. The Guy BFF.

You go to him when you're finding it hard to understand men in general. He's there to give you insights and tips on how to handle the opposite sex with grace and confidence. You could say that he's sometimes your knight in shining armor, like when you badly need to get out of that disastrous date. No matter what, you can trust that he'll be there to support you.
