How to Evict That One Ex Who Lives In Your Head Rent-Free

So, you’ve found yourself navigating the treacherous waters of post-breakup life. It’s like being on a rollercoaster ride with no seatbelt – thrilling and terrifying all at once. But fear not, because this article will guide you through the tumultuous journey with a sprinkle of humor and a dash of wisdom from my film “Wheelchair Money,” a hilarious buddy comedy premiering as part of the 2024 Easterseals Disability Film Challenge.

Breakups are like a crash landing, leaving you dazed and disoriented. But just like a phoenix rising from the ashes, you have the power to emerge stronger and more resilient than ever before. So, grab a tub of ice cream (or your snack of choice) and let’s dive into the best ways to get over an ex.

First things first, give yourself permission to feel all the feels. Whether it’s anger, sadness, or confusion, don’t bottle up those emotions. Let them flow like a river, washing away the pain and paving the way for healing.

Next up, it’s time to cut off contact. Yes, I know it’s tempting to stalk their Instagram or send that late-night text, but trust me, it’ll only prolong the agony. Unfollow them, delete their number, and resist the urge to engage in any form of communication. It’s time to reclaim your power and focus on yourself. Bye Felicia!

Now, let’s talk self-care. Treat yourself like the royalty you are. Indulge in those favorite foods, immerse yourself in your favorite activities, and pamper yourself silly. Whether it’s a bubble bath, a Netflix binge, or a spa day, prioritize your well-being above all else.

And speaking of self-love, it’s time to rediscover your passions. Remember those hobbies you pushed aside during the relationship? Well, dust them off and dive back in with gusto, or take the opportunity to find a new one. Whether it’s painting, hiking, or salsa dancing, find what lights your soul on fire and pursue it with reckless abandon.

Ah, reflection – the cornerstone of personal growth. Take some time to ponder the lessons learned from the relationship. What worked? What didn’t? And most importantly, what can you take away from this experience to become a better version of yourself?

Be sure to surround yourself with love and support. Like Johnny in “Wheelchair Fitness,” find the Whitney to be your rock when the waves of heartbreak come crashing down.

Finally, do some swiping on Dateability to find yourself an upgrade. As they say, one of the best ways to get over someone can be to get under someone else. 

Remember, getting over an ex is a journey, not a destination. So, be patient with yourself, embrace the ups and downs, and trust that brighter days are ahead. And who knows? Maybe you’ll emerge from this experience stronger, wiser, and ready to take on the world – with a new boo by your side.

More about “Wheelchair Money”: When his health insurance provider refuses to fund a new custom power wheelchair, Johnny and his best friend Whitney go on a quest across NYC to sell a prized Beanie Baby he got from an ex-girlfriend to pay for the chair themselves encountering inaccessibility and tests to their friendship along the way in this hilarious buddy comedy short film.
