Breakups don’t always suck, but when they do, they really suck.

That’s right, love is basically a drug. So how do we get through this brain-altering time in our lives? YouTube channel SoulPancake took a chapter out of the typical withdrawal treatment and came up with a list of “steps” to help you get through your breakup and channel your anger or sadness into a road to heartache recovery. With a healthy dose of humor added in, you’ll be on your way to truly getting over the past.
