Women Who Shed Their Ex To Live Their Best Life

The reason we’re single isn’t because we can’t find love but because we’re thriving on our own. Let’s just say that sometimes it takes kissing a few frogs not to find our prince, but to find ourselves.

Leaving an ex is hard at first, but once we shed the layers of the stress they put on us, we surprise ourselves. That’s exactly what these women did, and they set the bar pretty high.

Wrong Flavor, Wrong Time

Grand gestures after a breakup are actually quite annoying because it makes us wonder why they couldn’t do those exact things while actually in the relationship.

It’s a little too late, but the least they could do is get the right flavor.

What did we do to deserve grandmas? They are nothing but sugar with spice that comes out of nowhere when it’s your heart on the line.

This grandma is even on Twitter!

Women have come a long way and they’re finally realizing that they don’t need a man to make them happy. They can make themselves happy just fine.

So if men want to fit into their happy lives, they now have to work for it.

The best way to get over a breakup is to go on a nice vacation.

Nothing is more uplifting than drinking piña coladas on the beach with your girlfriends, laughing on the inside that you could have instead been having the same toxic argument with your ex.

Better Than Therapy

“How many of you ‘developed’ issues while in a relationship? I’ll go first: depression and anxiety. Cured as soon as we broke up.”

It seems a lot cheaper than therapy too.

Best Pounds Ever Lost

The easiest way to shed those extra pounds is to walk away from the person weighing you down.

We promise it’s the most liberating feeling when you finally feel the weight of the stress of a toxic person fall off your shoulders.

It’s funny how men still think we put in the effort of applying contour and makeup for their pleasure.

We know very well that they can’t even tell bronzer apart from blush so why would we waste our time on them?

Lies Men Tell

The funny thing here is that the woman on the left is also the woman that comes back once she files for divorce.

It turns out that the only other person who can treat her as well as her parents is herself.

New Piece Of Art

“I kicked my loser ex out of my house and got a new piece of art!”

Not only does this serve as a memory of the last day she had to deal with a toxic ex, but it will forever remind her to not get involved with another one again.

Poor Cinderella got the dress and the glam but Fairy Godmother forgot to mention to her that she could spend the night dancing with her girlfriends instead of meeting with the prince.

It’s not like Prince Charming wasn’t busy enough dancing with every girl in town.

“My ex was bitter about our breakup, started comparing me to Taylor Swift this was my response.”

Now that it’s in writing, it’s official. This is why we can’t have nice things.

How many times have you gone on a Tinder date not even sure if the person was cute because they looked different in every picture? Too many.

Plus they can’t break your heart yet through just a picture.

Here’s a little reminder that respect is deserved by all women.

You don’t have to take her out on a date at a five-star restaurant and introduce her to your parents, but give her the bare minimum respect at the very least.

Spoiler alert, as evidently written on the cover of the box: cheaters get caught and get cuffed.

If only cheating could qualify as an illegal crime, but then we would never have enough jail cells.

This feels like a win for the sisterhood. It’s funny how life finds a way to come full circle and give you revenge in the most unexpected yet most satisfying ways.

The man has no chance in court now.

It’s not impossible to maintain positive relationships with an ex. It just takes a lot of maturity and a good sense of humor.

Who says you can’t celebrate the day you set each other free to live your best lives?
