Breakups are universally painful. Like throw yourself on the floor, limp as hell painful. I went through a breakup in that sucked. After dating on and off for four years since becoming a single mom that was hystericalI thought I finally found a keeper.

It lasted a blissful one year and then it was over, like the end of a book. And I was crushed and in denial. It was like he died. The rational brain says: Christine, people breakup everyday.

Hello, time-killer. See what I mean? When I was in my 20s a breakup meant I only left my bed to go to work—or fine, to the bar. Go to a bookstore and read something, anything while you sip a delicious latte. Go to a trivia night with your friends. Take up a sushi-making class. I love to exercise. It keeps me sane. I took up hot yoga and it made me feel like I was cleansing myself of my past experiences, drip by drip.

I was never the girl who thought I could tone up and look hot and my man would come running back—absurd. A thigh gap! I just needed to move—listening to Fiona Apple and Alanis Morissette. There was snow Breaking up with a single mother the ground. I was I got through my pregnancy, birth, and six epic years of raising my son without his father—without a main man— ding, ding, ding.

In addition, I wrote a book and worked in Breaking up with a single mother magazine offices. There is truth that not every single human being needs a partner to complete them. We are not recluses.
