Moving on from a past relationship is never easy. Regardless of how long you two have been together, this process doesn't have an expiration date. It's a messy and heartbreaking process of re-adjusting your life and getting used to being on your own again. But even though this phase can be challenging, it definitely becomes easier when you're surrounded by family and friends who are ready to keep you calm and sane while rebooting your life. Let's admit this, though, that even if you appreciate the efforts and intentions of the people around you, there are just things they tell you that sting and annoy you. So whether you're the one moving on from the breakup or are comforting a friend who's going through this right now, here's a list that can help you. Good luck, Candy Girls!
