Cupid’s Advice:

In Home Again, Witherspoon struggles to find herself after going through a divorce with her husband. Going through a breakup is always difficult, but Cupid has some tips to help you get by:

1. Rely on your support system: Whether it be family members or friends, have a support system that will be there for you at your time of need. Have someone that you know you can talk to, or have that shoulder to cry on. It’ll make the process a little bit easier, plus you won’t feel as alone.

2. Occupy yourself: The worst thing you can do is sit around, crying and thinking about the relationship and breakup. Allow yourself a few days of grieving, but after that, it’s time to occupy your mind. Take up a new hobby, go work-out, or hang out with friends — but it’s important to find healthy ways to keep yourself distracted.

3. Use this time to focus on you: Take advantage of the breakup process and use the time to focus on yourself. If there’s a project you’ve been meaning to complete, now is the time to do that. Want to start eating healthy and working out? Now is the perfect time! Take care of yourself, and be proud for being able to do that.
