How to Heal after Chris Pratt & Anna Faris’ Breakup – or maybe even your own


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Maybe you’ve been following them on social media, or have browsed one of their viral interviews of being ADORABLE together – either way, you’ve heard about Chris Pratt and Anna Faris being couple goals… until recently. News of them separating has the world in shambles. Check out this video down below to get the scoop —


If you’re just gone through a break up or are trying to get over the loss of a loved one, the absence of intimacy in your life can be painful. This isn’t just about sexual intimacy; studies have shown that human beings are biologically wired to need physical touching and affection. While you may feel dating and spending time with the opposite sex helps to fill that void—don’t feel like there aren’t other ways to connect that will help you heal your broken heart! Below are a few examples of ways to fill that aching void in your life:

  • Hugging. Taking a second to give your family/friends a hug throughout your day may sound corny, but you would be surprised at how much this quick exchange of energy can give you a mood burst!
  • Massage/Spa Sessions. Treating yourself to a massage or a mani/pedi will not only give you some human connection but you will also be able to take some time to yourself to simply relax.
  • Pets. Adopting an animal can be especially helpful for those who are typically very nurturing in relationships. Having a furry friend to take care of can help you feel needed again—not to mention you’ll be giving the animal a better life than they probably otherwise would’ve had!
  • Books. Research is powerful, especially if you are going through a difficult time in your life. No matter your situation, chances are there is someone out there who has gone through something similar and can offer some insight/advice. Reading can also help by keeping your mind busy and out of the negative ruminating stage!


Although you may be hurting right now, it’s important to keep in mind you won’t be forever. The key is to maintain a positive attitude and keep yourself busy! For a step by step guide in making this happen, check out Tara Richter’s book 5 Steps to Heal a Broken Heart.

Bachelorette Skips out on Engagement Party – Trouble in Paradise?!

Eyebrows have been raised when social media blew up with questions as to why Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay, skipped her own engagement party. Pretty weird. All of her girls have been posting on Instagram, celebrating in her honor.

Meanwhile, on Rachel’s IG –

Throwing shade at her friends from the engagement party or trying to distract from the fact that she missed her own celebration?!

Remember, if you’re feeling as if you’re in a controlling relationship – know that you’re not alone and you do not need to hide.

Controlling behavior feels like you’re a caterpillar in a cocoon struggling to get out and spread your wings, yet the other person wants to keep you in the cocoon. The more you struggle to get out, the tighter they hold you in. If you do break out for a while they will try even harder to hold you down until you finally get weak and just give up.

If you feel like you’re constantly struggling in your relationship and they are showing any signs of controlling behaviors from above, get out. You are the only one who will allow someone else to control and manipulate you. Stop letting someone else control your life.

Most people who feel the need to control others will not want to have anything to do with you unless they can control you. It’s better to walk away and end the relationship if you can for your sanity. If the person is a family member or co-worker, try to keep them at arm’s length. When you must interact with them, try to keep the peace. Though, as soon as they start bossing you around just end the conversation and walk away. They will soon realize you will not tolerate this kind of behavior.
