OK, so Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston broke up. Sigh.
We all pretty much knew this was coming, but what we didnt know is how much Taylor would be shrugging the breakup off like it was no thang. Shes been killin it this week.
I suggested some things Taylor should do post-breakuprather than taking therelationship-hop route once again, and she actually seems to be taking my advice (so far).
Taylors been photographed living up the single life. Shes not slowly drifting off into nothingness on the couch of her Tribeca apartment with her many cats, so you cant help but pat her on the back for that.
If youre going through a breakup, you may want to take some tips from Tay. Here are all the positive ways you should move on after a soul-crushing breakup, just like her:
Throw yourself into your craft.
I cant prove this is true, but I bet you a million dollars that T. Swift iswriting about Hiddleston, if old habits are proof of anything.Like me, shes one to pen things about all the dudes whove done her wrong.
Go, Tay! I cant wait for your new music.
You may not be a world-class songwriter like our friend Tay, but I know theres somethingabout you that makes you want to get up in the morning.
Whats your favorite hobby that you sometimes forget to make time for? Like, the thing you wish you could do for a living, but cant because youd probably be starving on the street doing it?
Is it singing or playing an instrument? Or maybe arts and crafts is your thing.Do that, and do a lot of it.
Be kind to yourself, of course. But also be kind to others.
Taylor Swift recently made a terminally ill girls dreams come true by chatting with her for half an hour. Yes, an entire half hour.
If the most highly-paid female celebrity on the planet can find time in her busy schedule to do something wonderful for another person, then I think you, too, can make time to pay it forward, even if its just a tiny deed.
Doing nice things for other people is actually proven to make us feel happier about ourselves and our own lives. A little bit goes a long way.
Take care of yourself.
Just hours after her breakup was publicized, Taylor was seen leaving the gym all happy and whatnot.
Ladies, its OK to mourn the loss of your ex. Throw on some sweatpants, cry it out and eat your feelings. But eventually, youve got to pull it together and remember to take care of yourself, a la Tay.
Its too easy to get too comfortable in Sweatpants Land. Get to the gym. I promiseyoull feel a million times better once you do.
Hang out with your squad.
Taylors been spending her time with her BFFs,because where the hell would we be without our best girl friends?
Its too easy to get stuck in your own head after a breakup. Instead of taking a trip down Feeling-Sorry-For-Myself Lane, make it a point to surround yourself with your girl friends as much as possible.
Oh, and just a tip: Dont spend all your time with them slamming your ex. Its just going to make them want to kill you.
Dont jump into another relationship!
Its kind of soon to tell with this one, but Ms. Swift hasnt yet thrown herself at anotherhot, somewhat-emotionally-unavailable A-list celeb. Its been three whole days and nada (lolz).
But for real, take care of yourself first. Dont worry about finding someone else so soon after ending it with someone! No one wants sad, broken you; they want beaming, on-top-of-the-world you.
Focus on getting there, and then,look for love.
