Rationalization doesn’t really make you feel better, but it can certainly keep you occupied. There are too many reasons you can find behind each breakup.
The common technique is to blame everything on the other party, which is fine because you can still think positively about yourself, stay sane and remain a saint.
Another technique is to use distractions, the more the better. Haven’t you heard that the quickest way to get over a man is to get under another?
Or, you can go and have a haircut, like many girls do, except that you will soon be bald if you keep it up.
But my favorite is to hang out with friends and just talk it out. It’s also the best way to find out who your true friends are.
I always cherish friendship, although most of my friends are not here in Tokyo, like the American ER doctor, the Brazilian professor, the Canadian writer, and the German trader.
One of them told me to stop being philosophical, and another suggested that I stop analyzing. So now what? Just sit at home and cry? On a gorgeous autumn day like this?
No way! This is when I have every excuse to go shopping! Don’t you know? Retail therapy is he best way to get over a man!
