Why Do Women Fall So Hard?
The Side Effects Caused By Breaking Up.
Oh Yes, the wonderful world of chocolate , it eases the pain, and also packs on the calories. Some women blame their weight gain on their breakup.
It's his entire fault! if he would've stayed with you; you would have left that box of Ben & Jerry's chocolate fudge brownie ice cream alone. Your breakup, is the reason why you tore through that box of chocolate like mad wolverine.
Why do women turn to chocolate or food after a break up?
"Emotional eating is eating for reasons other than hunger," says Jane Jakubczak, a registered dietitian at the University of Maryland. "Instead of the physical symptom of hunger initiating the eating, an emotion triggers the eating."
Food fills a void that cannot be sealed by man or materialistic value and so does substance abuse.
Breakups prompt a hunger inside. Most women search to find a quick solution to heal the nagging pain of rejection.

Also embrace friendships that promote grace and forgiveness.
Grace: The love and mercy given to us by God, because God desires us to have it, not because of anything we have done to earn it"
If you don't believe in God, take time out to discover the Master of unconditional love. Talk to other believers that have moved on through the grace of God.
Forgiveness: Just because you forgive someone, does not mean that you should let your guard down. Forgive- and move on. Free yourself from the bondage of hurt emotions. By changing your lifestyle. Create new circumstances for yourself through constant prayer.

Sure you may say, “I'm tired of spending time with myself, that's why I got/had a boyfriend.” Ladies you should never get tired of spending time with yourself. Trust me, by the time you do find the right guy, and you have kids. you will be begging for some alone time. Look at this period in your life, as alone time.
