I remember an email sent by one of our readers asking me to create an inspirational video that can help heal a breakup. Unfortunately, we at Video Inspiration, didn’t have any videos at that point in time on that specific topic of concern and so I tried to calm the person with some good words.
Earlier today, I was randomly going through my quora email list and I saw a question that really caught my attention. The question that was asked being – “What was the first thing you did after a breakup?” and the answer from “Parvathy Nair Muraleekrishnan” was quite convincing. And therefore, I’m publishing this post for the person who asked for a video that can help heal a breakup. This one is for you buddy.
Question: What was the first thing you did after a breakup?
Answer: I washed every piece of cloth in my house.
It was a fine, bright and sunny saturday, until the break up happened. He broke up with me over the phone. I was shell shocked. I tried crying, but I couldn’t. After a couple of minutes of staring into the incomplete conversation, I kept my phone aside, tied my hair in a bun and went into my room. I took every piece of cloth I owned and washed them. It took me almost 2 hours to wash them all. Then I did all my mother’s clothes, my sisters clothes, my father’s clothes, every curtain, every bedspread, every pillow cover. I washed every piece of cloth in my house, literally. This laundry marathon took almost 7 hours. I was deadbeat. I couldn’t stand on my feet without support, my back was aching, my hands were burning (I’m allergic to detergent). I, then took a hot shower, ate a hearty dinner and slept. 11.5 hours of peaceful sleep.
When I woke up the next day, I felt different. Yes, I was sad, but it wasn’t more than anything I could handle. The very next day, I joined Carnatic music classes, driving classes and a gym. Now, I don’t have time to cry over him. I’m too tired (physically) to think of what happened.
Moreover, I try to see the bright side. When he left, he scared me, true. But, he gave me a lesson that I’ll never forget for the rest of my life. In a way, I’m glad about that.
Let me give you one advice.
Keep yourself busy. Go to work, read, watch sitcoms, listen to music, go to the gym, join hobby classes, travel, sing, dance, cook, eat, explore, talk, do whatever you feel like doing. Just don’t stop. Keep yourself busy. This will help. I can guarantee that.
Heartbreaks are hard, very much. Instead of running away from the difficulties, face them. Adopt the AAA method. Acknowledge that you’ve broken up. Accept the break up. Last but not the least, Advance.
