How to get through any break-up with Jennifer Aniston-ease
She's the kween!
Just when you thought 2016 has seen its fair share of break-ups (we’ll never forget Brexit), the universe decided to take that on as a challenge. There’s been trouble in Brangelina paradise, and Angelina Jolie has apparently filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences and is seeking physical custody of all six of their children. Almost as a reflex, all our thoughts darted to Pitt’s ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, who (fortunately!) isn’t even on social media. And the Internet channeled its collective shock and disappointment through the best Aniston memes, of course.

And well, it can be cathartic. So here we are again, following Aniston’s guide to getting through the murky world of break-ups.
It always, always starts with denial. You’d rather bury your head in the sand and pretend it never happened.
That is, of course, until reality comes knocking.
Which understandably makes you release your emotions, like any rational being, through…rage and incoherent cussing.
The next stage may or may not be accompanied by copious amounts of ice cream, alcohol, Adele and drunk dialling.
Issue a memo to all your friends, so that they can avoid being spotted within a 500 mile radius of your ex. Or there will be collateral damage.
Once you are done getting mad, it’s time to get even. Cue: the rebound(s?).
Or maybe you’ll pull a Katrina Kaif, hit the gym and get yourself a revenge body.
Until, of course, the waterworks flow again.
…which might just throw you in the arms of your other love: junk food.
If you are lucky, your friends will help you snap right back.
And then one day – surprise, surprise – your old flame and his girlfriend call it quits.
And while getting through a bad break-up sounds bearable, getting out of the bed in the morning is a different story altogether!
