Growing up has nothing to do with age. It has more to do with maturity.

I created my own very first break-up rule:
Destroy all pictures where he looks sexy and you look happy.

Break-up rule number two:
Lie. It’s a lot easier than admitting why.

Break-up rule number three:
Until emotionally stabilized, enter no stores.

Break-up rule number four:
Never stop thinking about him even for a moment…because that’s the moment he’ll appear.

And finally, the most important break-up rule:
No matter who broke your heart or how long it takes to heal…you’ll never get through it without your friends.
