One of the embarrassing situations in life is to run into an ex COMPLETELY UNPREPARED; or even worse when he is with his new beau and you, well you are alone.
I'm going to reveal some of my secrets for all of you, just in case the dreaded run-in occurs.
Here are some tips on how to ALWAYS be prepared for that moment :
1) Always DRESS YOUR BEST!
It is always better to dress up than to dress down. Remember this peeps!
2) Always ensure that you PUT ON YOUR BRIGHTEST SMILE even if you are feeling crappy inside.
Even if you are feeling down, put on a smile. That, my friend, is your greatest accessory!
Remember the quote : "Always smile, you never know who's falling in love with it!"
Well, your smile is going to blow your ex's mind.
(He/she will either wonder if your new beau is the reason behind that smile? Or ponder about what he/she is really missing out!)
3) Even after a HUGE break-up and you are getting over your heartbreak, don't forget to take good care of yourself.
a) Ensure that you drink plenty of fruit juices or plain water.
(AT LEAST YOUR SKIN is looking FABULOUS even if you are not feeling it. ☆(^_−)☆ )
b) Ensure that you apply your skincare routine everyday WITHOUT FAIL!
No matter how depressed you feel, you do not need that depression SHOWED on your face! Be hardworking and SLAP on moisturisers, anti-wrinkle creams, acne gels, eye potions and whatnots!!!!
(AT LEAST, a part of you is still feeling awesome. Even though you are bleeding inside.)
c) Ensure that you apply your weekly facial masks!!!!
(AT LEAST, you are still taking good care of yourself. Don't let yourself go for someone else. YOU ARE TAKING GOOD CARE OF YOUR FACE FOR YOU!!!! AND NOT FOR ANYONE ELSE!!!!)
In fact, just the other day, I was having a shitty day. It was one of those days where you start the morning accidentally hurting your knee and then you step out of your room and OOOPSIE~ stepped in your dog's excrement. While you are trying to clean your leg, you find your other dog trying to hump the dress you are about to wear. And and.... "BEST" of all, you realise that you changed the password of your handphone AND you forgot what the hack it is!!!!! I know how BIMBOTIC that sounds, but oh well~~~
What I did was to SLAP on a THICK LAYER of 24k Gold mask and started replying my emails. I did what I was supposed to do, took care of work, and about an hour later, I washed off the facial mask and revealed peaches-and-cream looking complexion. IN ADDITION, I completed all I had set out to do.
I used this 24k Gold mask:
About 48 hours after forgetting my password, I was able to suddenly remember what it was. Hahahhahahahaha.... my backup plan from now onwards, would be to drop my mum a message and tell her my password. She's like my safe box - hoarding all my "treasures" for me.
FherL.... but THANKS MUMMY!!!!!!!! ヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)ﾉヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)ﾉヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)ﾉ
d) Apply a good hair mask weekly to ensure your hair is well conditioned.
GO to a mirror and REPEAT after me:
I FEEL A-W-E-S-O-M-E! Awesome, awesome, awesome!!!!!!!!
And my hair has to look the same.
My hair is over bleached therefore it is quite dry and because it is very THICK, sometimes my hair looks more like a WIG! OMG!!!!
To keep my hair in its tip-top condition, I am using this set from SHUNJI MATSUO!
4) When you really run into your ex on the street, stay calm and BE YOURSELF!!!!
Be polite and control your thoughts and feelings. YOU DO NOT WANT him/her to thank his/her lucky stars that he/she is no longer with you!!!!!
I know it might be awkward but do say hi!! Smile brightly and carry yourself well.
For me, I am generally a very happy-go-lucky person. When I last saw an ex, I said,"HI FRIEND! How are you?"
My confident and relaxed state totally caught him off guard. *snaps fingers and breaks out in song*
Nah!!! It's not about winning or losing. Hahahhahahaha.... It was just the feeling you get when you know that you have done well!!! ("⌒∇⌒")
4) BE NOTHING SHORT OF FABULOUS!
What the conversation should be like :
You: "Hi! OMG!! How are you?"
Ex : "Hi, good good and you?"
You: "I've been nothing short of fabulous, because I just got promoted / got proposed to / got a new car/ got a new nose (totally kidding please) / went on an amazing holiday etc etc etc...."
See how the conversation is skewed towards how well you are doing without him/her?
BUT BUT don't fake it. Ensure your answers are true positive occurences in your life! It is essential to drop hints that you have moved on but it is vital to let him/her know that you have matured for yourself and not for anyone else!!!
5) Listen to whatever they say with a light heart.
Don't be too affected by what they say. NEVER ever let anyone get to you with their words. They can't pull the trigger if you don't give them the gun.
Also, don't let their compliments get to your head and don't let their criticisms get to your heart. Let him/her know that you are clearly aware of who you are and where you want to go in life; whether he or she is joining you in your journey, doesn't matter to you at all!
Ensure that he/she knows that you are moving on. Don't let him/her have the satisfaction of knowing that you'll always be there waiting.
So, these are my beauty must-haves and my personal tips on how to avoid severe embarrassment when you run into that jerk-of-an-ex and his/her annoyingly good-looking new beau.
