There’s no denying it. Breaking
up is oh-so hard to do, especially in
today’s 24-hour techno-savvy world of Facebook, Twitter, and post-breakup booty
calls arranged via sexting. Before you get down in the dumps about getting
dumped (or even if you did the dumping), the following five tips will help kick
start your recovery.  Before you know it,
you’ll not only be surviving but thriving!
 

Tip #1:
EXtract Your Ex from Your Life

Immediately following the breakup, cut your ex out
of your life. That means no cyber stalking him on his Facebook, MySpace, or
Twitter page, no 3 a.m. desperation emails or texts, and no driving by your
ex’s house to see who's home.  You should
also make a clean sweep of your home, getting rid of any and all items that
remind you or relate to your ex. This exorcism can be challenging but in order
to really move on after a breakup, it's absolutely essential.

If you have
to
keep your ex in your life (if you have kids together, run a business
together, etc.), you should immediately create new boundaries and ground
rules.  For example, only discuss matters
relating to your children or business and avoid talking about your personal
lives.  Do NOT try to help each other
through the breakup.  That's what your
friends are for.

Tip #2:
Recruit a Boo-Hoo Crew

By

At a distance, I've always been fascinated by motherhood. On the one hand, it's our most natural, biological function as women. It's what our bodies are built for. On the other, after spending the past 20 years watching and witnessing dozens of my friends get pregnant, give birth and raise children, I feel all the more sure I made the right ... Read more

Why 'Having It All' Doesn't Have To Mean Having Kids

By

Back when Anne-Marie Slaughter's article Why Women Still Can't Have It All appeared in the The Atlantic back in 2012, I was fired up and pissed off. And I still am because, you now, she's right! First, let's define what Slaughter means by "having it all." She's referring to that constant juggling act of having a ... Read more

I Lost My Cool With A 6-Year-Old Bully On The Playground

By

Yes, you read that right I'm a real a**hole on the playground. More specifically, I may be ruining young psyches with my playground politics. Case in point: My recent run in with a little girl we'll call Julia. In my defense, Julia's a real prima donna. Blonde. Prissy. Know-it-all. She may only be 5 or 6 now, but I see Julia's future. ...
