Getting into a relationship is a much bigger deal than people make it out to be.  It can end in either one of two ways: breaking up or marriage!   When you put it that way and look at the bigger picture, you should make sure you’re certain about someone before you get into a relationship with them.  Here are four things to ask yourself before dating someone!

  • “Am I ready for a relationship?” First and foremost, you need to put yourself first.  Although you might like the idea of him, make sure YOU are ready to make the commitment.  You need to be sure you’re over any past relationships and are ready to date again.
  • “Does he have everything I’m looking for?” We have to set our standards, ladies!  Sometimes it even helps to write down a list of all the things you look for in someone.  Maybe it’s humor, manners, kindness, or honesty.  The list can go on and on.  Then, go from there!
  • “Are there any red flags?” These are SO important to pick out before you get into a relationship with someone.  If there’s an automatic red flag at any point, you should definitely look further into it!  Whatever it may be true or not, don’t make excuses for it unless you ask them about it first.
  • “Are you both on the same page?” Making sure you have the same morals and values is also an extremely important factor to put into play. Although opposites can attract, most times two people with similar mindsets work out a little better!

I hope this helps you next time you’re unsure about getting into a relationship! 🙂

Love, Chelsea

Do’s and Don’ts of Breaking Up

Break-ups can be both the best and worst thing in the world.  Depending on who you are and/or who you are dating, break-ups can either be freeing and relieving or heartbreaking and miserable.  Either way, I have a few helpful do’s and don’ts that I think I could offer!

  • DO be respectful.  Make sure you are always considering their feelings and their side of the story.  Try to put yourself in their shoes and know it can be just as hard on them as it is for you.
  • DON’T forget your worth.  Oftentimes, it can be easy to forget your worth and make excuses for the other person, especially when you’re going through a rough patch.  Know what you deserve and don’t settle for anything less!
  • DO put yourself first.  There’s a huge difference between being selfish and putting yourself first.  It’s okay to consider your own feelings and to value what you need out of a relationship over your boyfriend.  At the end of the day, you have to look out for yourself!
  • DON’T forget what you learned.  You can learn so much through dating and breaking up.  It teaches you valuable lessons that you can use the next time you date someone.  You can observe what worked, what didn’t work, and what traits you’re looking for in the next person you date!

I hope this helps you out next time you go through a break up, which I hope isn’t any time soon for you!

5 Types of Breakups Every Girl Goes Through

All of us girls can agree on one thing: breakups are the worst.  No one enjoys breaking it off with someone or especially being broken up with!  Although they’re never fun, there are some breakups that are better than others.  Here are 5 different types of breakups that most of us have experienced at least once!

  1. The friendly breakup.  Aren’t these the best?  You know and agree that you both aren’t right for each other so you end on a civil note.  You can still have friendly conversations without it being awkward or hostile!   
  2. The heartbreaking breakup.  These breakups are the ones you never ever want to experience.  They’re the breakups that leave you with sleepless nights and lots of heartache.  If you’ve experienced this before, just know you’re not alone! 
  3. The angry breakup.  Having built up grudges and anger especially at the end of a breakup makes parting ways 10x harder.  I know for me, I hate when people are mad at me or when a situation leaves me boiling up inside!
  4. The one-sided breakup.  Depending on what side you’re on, you can either leave feeling relieved or extremely heartbroken.  It’s the worst when you’re more invested in someone than they are in you.  
  5. The end result breakup.  This is the breakup that you both expected no matter how much you wanted to deny it.  I think we’ve all experienced this at some point in our dating life.  You didn’t want to admit it, but you knew breaking up would be the end result!

Which breakup do you think is the worst?  One day we’ll have a relationship that won’t ever have to end in a breakup!

Tips on Getting Over a Breakup

Breakups are rough, am I right? They can make you feel like the air has been sucked out of the room and the world has been turned upside down. Today I am going to give you some tips on how to get over a breakup, because girl, they can be painful!

Give it to God:

Hand over the breakup to God to help deal with all the bad feelings you have. It is not easy, and sometimes it is just easier to hold onto those feelings of hurt and anger towards your ex, but by asking God to take it over, you are allowing him to free you from all of those yucky feelings. He will give your heart peace! Trust that God has someone even better lined up for you in the future!

Feel the Pain:

Okay, that might sound weird, so let me explain. Don’t try and hold all of your sadness and pain in, let it out. Holding it in can be even more painful. Allowing yourself to feel the pain by crying, journaling, and praying  can give you the opportunity to discover parts of yourself and know what you are giving up to God as you go from heartache to moving on!

Do Fun Things…When You are Ready:

When a relationship ends, it’s not the end of the world, but it can sometimes feel that way! It is important to get out and live life. When you feel like you are ready to let go of your pain, get out and have some fun. Hang out with friends, go to a movie, go shopping, whatever you find enjoyable!  As you spend time with people doing the things you love, you’ll find that the pain starts to lift.

 

Girls, you are beautiful, strong, and important. Don’t let a breakup make you feel any different!

Stay strong,

Love you!

 

XOXO, Chels

Some ex’s are just tough to get over. Sometimes you can even be tempted to go back to go to them! Don’t fall for that trap! Here are some ways to get over those tricky ex’s.

1. Exercise the blues away

Exercise is a great way to boost your endorphins and get out of your depressed state! When you are happy, you aren’t feeling down and won’t be so tempted to go back to your ex! Just 10 minutes of moderate exercise is enough to improve your mood. Not only does exercise boost your mood, exercise helps your body look and feel better, which boosts your self confidence! When you are happier and more self confident, you are in the right mindset to leave your past relationship in the dust and explore new horizons!

2. Take time to rebuild your relationship with yourself and God

chelsea crockett over it

A lot of times, when you are in a relationship you often put the other person’s needs and wants above your own. Sometimes this can cause you to lose a little bit of yourself. That is no bueno! Often when your relationship comes to an end, you may find it difficult to remember the things that you enjoyed or liked to do because you were so wrapped up in what HE wanted. Pray about it. Lose yourself in Jesus and become so close to Him that all of your relationship blunders will fade into the past. Rebuilding your relationship with yourself and God is the first step to moving on

3. Find a new hobby

Now that you are single and free, find something that you love to do! You may have pushed aside a hobby of yours while you were in a relationship, but now that you are single you are free to do as you please! Immersing yourself in a hobby will not only keep your mind off of your ex, but it will also bring you joy! Pick up painting or photography or even reading! Anything you like!

Kick those ex’s to the curb, ladies! Show ‘em you are strong and resilient.

XOXO, Chels
