Best/Worst Breakup Advice from 40 People

Samantha Jayne, Relationship Expert says, “At the end of the day, COVID really showed us the truth; strong couples stayed together, the weaker ones with the cracks ended due to many factors.”

If you are one of the brokenhearted, you may be looking for some pearls of wisdom in the form of breakup advice.  It’s more likely a lot of people have the advice to give you whether you want it or not.

Since you are here we will assume you’re at least curious about what 40 people have to say about the very best and the very worst breakup advice.

We promise a few chuckles along the way and look forward to hearing back from you about which category you’d put some of this advice into. 

It’s not that your friends or family are aiming to give you bad advice.  The main source of bad breakup advice is that it’s actually relationship advice and you’re not in a relationship after a breakup.

That one is fun to think about for a hot minute but if it falls under stalking, vandalism or other criminal activity repeat with me “Prison orange is not my color, prison orange is not my color.”

We now arrive at some of the best breakup advice these folks have to share and, as Charlotte Eriksson stated, “There is no right way to do this.”

If you inwardly moan every time someone tells you to get lots of exercise to recover from a breakup (and the main reason you’re moaning is that you know they’re right you just don’t feel like it) then get back to both physical and emotional fitness by combining an exercise with exercise.

Dating and Relationship Guru Carlos Cavallo explains “One of the best exercises is simply to walk.  And you can couple this with imagining yourself walking away from that ex of yours. It’s great motivation, and it’s a great movement for your body.”

Beware of people who absolutely insist their advice is the right way, the only way, or the best way because at the end of the day only you can decide what will make you happy and whole again.

“Don’t pick up the phone
You know he’s only callin’ cause he’s drunk and alone
Don’t let him in
You’ll have to kick him out again
Don’t be his friend
You know you’re gonna’ wake up in his bed in the morning
And if you’re under him, you ain’t gettin’ over him”

When you’re having a really bad day remember, so far you’ve survived 100% of your worst days so you’re doing great!

It’s easy to forget our expectations, and have some solemn feelings towards the end of a split- but don’t worry, we’ve all been there and we’re still kicking! Remember you’re wiser than you think, and to follow your gut. If you find your friends are always coming to you for advice, apply this knowledge to yourself. You can do it!

I’d love it if you’d share some of the breakup advice you’ve given or received and say where it ranks on the scale of best to worst in the comments, below.

And if you think someone else needs to hear this today, please share!
