Bounce Back to Life

Bounce Back, Move Forward

Bouncing back is that moment in time when you realize you've created happiness from within, not based on another person. When you realize your heartbreak is truly in the past, you are ready to look to the future and move forward. Whatever you choose to do, reintroduce yourself with a smile, as a refreshed, refocused person and watch the world take notice. Read more about all four phases in our Believe section. Find out more

  • I GOT OVER IT! HAPPY GIRL HERE!

    I want to write my story to share with other women out there who have been through the same thing. I want to let you all know that you CAN and WILL be happy again. Do not be discouraged! I thought I would never ever get over the boy who broke my heart. After 2 and a half years of anxiety, panic attacks, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, therapy, crying spells, shame, depression, and nausea from anxiety, I am happy. Here I am! I feel super normal and happy! I won't go into details with all the things that happened, I don't want to talk about the negative things- they don't really matter. But what I really want to say is that there is light at the end of the tunnel! And you'll get over it once you allow yourself to.
    Some things that were REALLY effective for me:
    1) Getting a crush on someone (Do not try to force yourself to have a crush on someone, it is only effective when it is natural)
    2) Not listening to sad music, or music in general. This surprisingly helped ALOT. Clean out your ipod with sad music!!
    3) Keeping really busy! Always having to do something all the time helped.
    4) Observing your thoughts and stopping your thoughts as soon as they become negative. This is easier said than done, but practice it, because it gets easier over time. Im a master of it now. :)
    5) Make new friends. This helped me alot as well.

    Yeah I think thats about it. I believe in you!! You can pull through! I did :')
