Breakups are hard, with the feeling of heartbreak and brokenness. It is only with the never-ending supply of tissues, ice cream, and best friend hugs that we can sometimes get through it. But imagine dealing with a breakup when the person that you have ended a relationship with is in your same classes or living in the same building as you. The chance of running into this person after a messy breakup quickly becomes a very real possibility.

Getting over your former significant other when you just never stop running into them can be very difficult. You might see them bringing someone else into their room or maybe they'll see you. These awkward moments can lead to a hard time getting over someone and learning how to stop going crazy thinking about them. Here are six foolproof tips for getting over someone that you'll inevitably run into.

1. Stay busy 

In college specifically, it isn't hard to find things to do all of the time. Focus on your homework, go somewhere new, enjoy time with friends. The less time you sit there sitting by yourself, the easier it will be.

2. Please, don't go out of your way to talk to them 

I know you want to talk to them, but there is no reason to. If someone isn't going to give you their time, it really isn't work it to put your valuable time and energy into talking to them.

3. Spend time with people that actually care about you 

Your friends love you, a lot. Take some time to do fun things with just your friends and it will allow the whole process to become easier.

4. Focus on yourself 

Self-care. Self-care. Self-care. I can't stress enough how important it is to love yourself. Use your extra time to love who you are and better yourself.

5. Keep it short. Keep it simple 

If you must talk to this person, stick to the point. Only talk about what you must and do not drag the conversation on longer than it needs to be.

6. Take time to meet new people 

Use this time to meet new people in the place that you are running into this person at. There are so many great people out there and this is a perfect time to get to know them.

16. Their "real job" will come later in life... they will end up being successful. Most employers love to hire former counselors, so it is not a waste of a summer.

17. They know how to hide their favorites in life really well... so if they choose to date you they are basically saying you are their favorite and that is a big deal to them.

18. They have learned how to eat unhealthy food every day for a whole summer and stay in shape... or try to at least.

19. They also are obviously not a diva when it comes to material needs...they went a whole summer without even air conditioning and never complained.

21. They love God, living for Him, and have already made a difference in many children's lives... they are the real MVPS.

If you are still looking for a place to work this summer and love adventure, Jesus, and children, apply for Camp Crestridge for Girls; they still have many positions available. I'll be there so you should too!

If you are a boy apply for Camp Ridgecrest for Boys!

The Easiest Way To Get Over A Breakup

Laying in your pajamas is not going to fix everything.

Breakups suck. There is no other way to say it. But... the good thing about breakups is that they can be seen as a good thing rather than a bad thing. I think the first step to getting over a breakup is to take time to grieve. Your life is going to be different. A whole person is removed from your life. Removed from your routine.

It's OK to take a day to be sad.

I usually take one to two days to be sad and eat a lot of food. You can't just skip over the loss and think that you will recover. You can't do that. Take your two or so days to be sad. No longer than a week. Don't wallow in your dirty, crumb covered sheets.

Once you have taken your grieving time, get your butt up.

Take a shower and leave your house. Put on your favorite outfit and do whatever you need to to make yourself feel better. Go do something. It can be something as small as getting a coffee or walking with friends. Do something with people. Don't become a recluse and isolate yourself.

Do not post on social media.

It is SO tempting to tweet about how sad you are or post a sad snap but don't. Don't let your ex have that much power over you. Don't give them the satisfaction of how sad you are without them. They are going to move on, so you should too. You should also mute them or unfollow your ex. There is no reason to get upset every time you open your phone and see their face. It's not "childish" or "petty" it's smart.

You have to put yourself first and be selfish at this time.

Once you allow yourself to climb out of your dark hole of pity, jump back into life. Keep your chin up and keep going. The best way to "win" in the breakup is to be happy and move on without them. You may fall, you will get random slip-ups of sadness, but you will be OK. Take what you have learned in the relationship and remember that part. Notice what worked and what didn't.

You are fine, it's just a breakup not the end of the world. You got this.
