Your pal may have the best of intentions but hearing, "Okay lang 'yan. Madami pang ibang babae p're," right after your girlfriend of five years told you she has fallen out of love is not exactly helpful.

It's a difficult, heart-wrenching time, and without good bits of advice, you may end up a mess. So, to help you recover from a breakup faster, we asked people who have been through the situation to share some helpful tips. See what they had to say below:  

1)   TALK ABOUT IT

"Spend most of your time with family and friends. Don't hesitate to vent our your feelings to these people you trust. They will surely understand you." —Stephanie, 28


2)   KEEP YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA GAME TIGHT

"Keep your mind occupied with things that have no connection with your ex. Don't text her. Block, unfollow, or unfriend her on social media. Rather, keep yourself busy with outdoor activities like hiking." —Derreck, 25


3)   REINVENT YOURSELF

"Imbis na magmukmok ka, use your energies to work out. Aside from the GV you'll get from endorphins, looking fitter will help you get looks from those who deserve your attention." —Harvey, 32


4)   THINK OF YOUR EXPENSES

"Calculate all the expenses you made during your relationship, and see how much you wasted for that damn bastard!" —Angelo, 25


5)   BE LIKE POPOY

"Be kind. Noong nag-move on si Popoy sa One More Chance, he was civil and nice to Basha. Sometimes mas mag-iisip 'yung other party pag hindi ka na bitter." —Joseph, 25


6)  
DEDICATE SOME TIME TO YOUR SPIRITUALITY

"Pray. Pray. Pray." —Phanz, 28


7)   SPEND MORE TIME WITH GOOD FRIENDS

"Surround yourself with close friends who will make you laugh." —Jaylyn, 30


8)   DO SOMETHING THAT WOULD MAKE YOU HAPPY

"Find something na makapagpapasaya sa'yo. For example, go out with your friends, go bar-hopping, concentrate on a hobby you've always wanted to try, and just enjoy." —Rustom, 22


9)   GIVE YOURSELF A JUMPSTART

"Make yourself more productive at work, and do the things that you were not able to when you were still with your ex. Go to places that you have never been to before and meet new people. Indulge yourself in activities that will give you an adrenaline rush like surfing, cliff diving, or even just riding a roller coaster at a theme park." —Angelica, 23


10)   LET IT ALL OUT

"Iiyak mo 'yung sakit." —Beige, 23


11)   THROW ALL HER PRESENTS AWAY

"Throw away all the the things na makakapagpaalala sa kanya—all the anniversary gifts and the birthday gifts." —Renalyn, 23

12)   KNOW YOUR WORTH

"Know your worth. Maybe you've been a great partner, hindi nga lang niya nakita ng enough. Sabi nga nila, 'There are many fish in the sea.' So, bakit mo papahirapan sarili mo kung alam mo naman marami pang iba?" —JB, 27

13)   TREAT YOURSELF

"Treat mo sarili mo. Bili ka ng mga bagong damit and pagupit ka para pag nagkita kayo, magsisisi siyang iniwan niya 'yung taong saksakan ng gwapo. Pero siyempre, huwag mo isipin na ginagawa mo lang 'yan para sa kanya, dapat unang una para sa sarili mo." —Paulo, 25


14)   STOP THINKING ABOUT HER

"Huwag mong isipin kung anong ginagawa niya, iniisip o nararamdaman niya kasi imagination mo lang lahat 'yan. Sinasaktan mo lang ang sarili mo. Focus on yourself. Ika nga, iniiwan tayo kasi may darating na better."  —Luis, 35
