5 Tips To Get Over Someone

Sure crying is normal and okay at first, but here's some ways to pick yourself right back up and move on.


Sure crying is normal and okay at first, but here's some ways to pick yourself right back up and move on.

Stay Busy


Listen, I'm just like everybody else and when I get sad all I want to do is eat and cry but where does that get you? It's better to occupy your mind and do more productive things than sit around and cry about the situation. It's in the past now and the only way to get over a breakup is to stay occupied. If you're bored and sitting alone in your room right after a breakup, odds are you're probably overanalyzing the situation and wondering where everything went wrong.

Find Yourself


It's hard to be by yourself and stop picturing yourself with that person now but that just means this is the perfect time to figure yourself out. Most people don't fully take the time to know and love themselves before looking for something and I think that's extremely important. Sometimes being alone might actually be the best thing for you to experiment and try new things as well as fully figure yourself out.

Realize you can do better


It's hard to imagine yourself without that person and moving on but knowing that you can do so much better than that person really helps. When I say better I'm not just talking about looks, I'm talking about personality and the way that person may treat you as well. You can be with the most attractive guy ever but if he treats you terribly, it's not worth it at all, you can do so much better.

Cut off contact


This is the actual hardest part because it's human nature to want to keep that person on social media and keep their number hoping they'll one day contact you. Trust me, it's not worth it. Things aren't going to change even if you were to go back to the person or if they were to contact you wanting you back. It'll hurt at first but once you stop seeing that person pop up all the time, it'll make it so much easier to move on from them.



This is the most important part, time. You don't just get over someone in one day, it's actually impossible. Even if you were with the person for a month or 2 years, it'll still take time to fully get over the person. The amount of time it'll take is different for everyone and everyone will have their own ways of getting over it.

After 'Extremely Wicked' And 'The Stranger Beside Me,' We Now Understand The Criminal Mind Of Ted Bundy

1 hour and 50 minutes, plus 550 pages later.


Netflix recently released a movie in May called "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile" (2019), based on the life of Ted Bundy from his girlfriend's viewpoint.

In 1980, an author and former Seattle police officer, Ann Rule, published a book about her experience and personal, close friendship with Ted Bundy, called "The Stranger Beside Me."

These two sources together create an explosion of important information we either skim over or ignore about Ted Bundy. Watching this movie and reading this book can really open your eyes to who Ted Bundy really was. Yeah, there are the confession tapes on Netflix, too, but these other things can really tie it all into one big masterpiece of destruction.

I swear, it will blow your mind in different ways you never thought possible.

In the movie, "Extremely Wicked", Zac Efron stars as the infamous Ted Bundy, America's most notorious serial killer. He portrayed the murderer who kidnapped, killed, and raped 30 women or more. Personally, he made a great Ted Bundy, mannerisms and all. Lily Collins stars as Ted's girlfriend who was easily manipulated by Ted and believed that he was innocent for years.

The movie is told in the order that Liz, Ted's girlfriend, remembers.

In the book, "The Stranger Beside Me", Ann Rule writes about Ted Bundy, who used to be her old friend. They met while working at a crisis center in the state of Washington and were close ever since. Like Liz, Ann believed he was innocent and that he was incapable of these horrific crimes.

Ted Bundy had made both Liz and Ann fools. He easily manipulated and lied to both women about many things for years, his murders being "one" of them.

Okay, so we all know that Ted Bundy was absolutely guilty as hell and totally murdered those women. 30 women or more. He literally confessed to that, but researchers and authorities believe that number to be way higher.

But... you must know that the movie and the book tell two different stories that lead to the same ending. That's why it's so intriguing.

At one point, I couldn't stop watching the movie. Then, I bought Ann Rule's book and was completely attached to it. I couldn't put it down.

For me, Ted Bundy is interesting to me. Unlike most young girls today, I don't have a thing for him nor do I think he's cute or hot. I know that he used his charm and looks to lure women into his murderous trap. That's why it's so hard to understand why this movie and book created a new generation of women "falling in love" with Ted Bundy.

GROSS: He sodomized women with objects. He bludgeoned women with objects or his own hands. He was a necrophile. Look those up if you have not a clue of what they mean. That could change your mind about your own feelings for Ted Bundy.

After "Extremely Wicked" and "The Stranger Beside Me", I now understand the criminal mind of Ted Bundy. He was insane, but he was also smart, put together, educated, charming, and lots more. That's why I'm so interested in why his brain was the way it was.

The criminal mind is an interesting topic for me anyway, but for Ted Bundy, it was amazing to learn about.

I highly recommend both the movie and the book I quickly read in two weeks! If you want answers, they are there.
