The 13 Post-Breakup Stages, As Told By Midge From 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel'

Little did she know her picture-perfect life was holding her back all along.

The 13 Post-Breakup Stages, As Told By Midge From 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel'

I've recently discovered the show The Mrs. Marvelous Maisel on Amazon Video, and it is officially my new favorite show. Season three where you at?! Midge is the perfect housewife with the perfect husband and the perfect little family and lives in a perfect little huge apartment in the upper west side. But, spoiler alert, it all gets flipped upside down and Midge is forced to make some big discoveries of her own. Little did she know her picture-perfect life was holding her back all along. The post-breakup journey is a rough one, but if you do it right it can be a journey of self-discovery, growth, and enlightenment.

So here are the post-breakup stages as told by Midge in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel:

1. The initial shock sets in

You don't know what you did wrong, or why this is happening to you. You have so many great qualities AND you're funny?

2. One thing leads to another...

3. And you're here.

Next thing you know you're a couple of glasses an ENTIRE wine bottle in and you're in for a night full of regrets.

4. The wine bottle takes over

Now you're saying what's REALLY on your mind. Regretful? Maybe. Therapuetic? 100 percent.

5. OK maybe you could have left this part out...

6. You've sobered up and...

While it felt good at the time you feel like you could have maybe expressed your emotions a little differently.

7. You own it and move on

8. And then it hits you

You have so much time for YOU. Why not use this hurt as fuel to spend time on yourself. It's time to thrive and, yes, this is a thing.

9. Now you're eating whatever you want

"Why do we pretend we're not hungry when WE'RE HUNGRY?" Pizza > a flat stomach.

10. You're the life of the party

11. You have a new job

Or maybe a new haircut...

12. And now you're truly thriving

13. And when you see your ex out and about...

All you'll want to do is thank him. Cause walking out of your life is the best thing he did for you. Thank u, next.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
