I’m going to tell you a story about a friend of mine. She was going through a breakup, and she was having a really hard time. She felt like she was losing her mind. She didn’t know how she was going to get through it.
She called me one day and said, “I just don’t know what to do. I feel like I’m losing my mind.”
So I asked her, “What do you mean, you feel like you’re losing your mind?”
And she told me, “Well, I can’t stop thinking about him. I think about him all the time. I don’t want to do anything. I just want to be with him, and I just can’t get him out of my mind. I want to call him and tell him how I feel, but I’m afraid he’s going to think I’m crazy. And I know he’s not going to want to talk to me, because he’s probably with someone else right now. And if I call him, he’s just going to hang up on me and tell me to get over it. And then I’ll feel even worse, because I’ll think, ‘Oh my God, I’m so stupid. I should have just let him go when he told me to.’ “
Now, I’ve been through a lot of breakups in my life, but this was the first time I’d ever heard of someone feeling like they were losing their mind because they couldn’t get a guy out of their head. I told her that she didn’t need to feel that way, and that she wasn’t going to lose her mind if she couldn’t talk to her ex-boyfriend. She told me that she’d tried calling him a couple of times, and he’d hung up on her. So I asked, “Have you tried texting him?”
“No,” she said. “I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
“Why not?” I asked.
“Well, he won’t text me back,” she explained. “He’s always texting other girls.”
I told her not to worry about that. “You know what you need to do? You need to write him a letter. Write him a love letter. Tell him how much you love him, how much he means to you, and how you can’t wait to see him. You’re going to feel so much better after you write him that letter.”
So she did. She wrote him a long letter telling him how she felt about him and how much she loved him. And the next day, she got a text back from him. He said that he’d been thinking about her a lot and that he wanted to see her again. So they went out on a date, and they’ve been together ever since. She’s been happier than she’s ever been in her entire life. And she’s never felt better about herself than she did after she wrote that letter to him. She said that writing that letter was the best thing she’d ever done in her life.
So if you’re having a hard time getting through your breakup, I want you to try writing a letter to your ex. I guarantee that it will make a huge difference in how you feel about yourself. And it will help you get through your break-up. So here’s how to do it:
1. Write a Letter to Your Ex
First, you have to figure out what you want to say to him in your letter. You might want to start by telling him that you miss him and that you wish you could see him again. Then you can tell him about all the things you loved about him, like the way he made you feel when you were with him. Or you can talk about the things that he did that made you fall in love with him in the first place. You can also talk about your feelings for him and what you’d like to do with your life now that you’re single again. You don’t have to be too specific, but you should try to be as specific as possible. You want him to know exactly what you’re thinking and feeling, so that when he reads your letter, he’ll feel like he knows you better than anyone else ever has. And that will make him want to see you again.
2. Write the Letter
Once you’ve figured out what to say, you’re ready to write the letter. Start by writing the date at the top of the page, and then write the name of the person you’re writing the letter to in the top right-hand corner. Then write your name at the bottom.
3. Address the Letter to Him
After you’ve written your name and the person’s name, it’s time to write his address. If you don’t already know where he lives, you can find that out by calling the phone company and asking them to give you his phone number.
