Bounce Back from a Break
Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog

We’ve got break-ups on the brain. No wonder. It’s been a summer of sensational splits!  Jennifer and Ben (not to be confused with 2004’s Bennifer), rockers Gwen and Gavin and country music’s reigning king and queen, Blake and Miranda, have all bid adieu to their relationships.

And, the biggest shocker of all: after 40-years together, Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog announced on Twitter they were officially calling it quits. Perhaps she realized he wasn’t going to turn into a prince after all.  While Kermit will tell you “it’s not easy being green,” the truth is break-ups can leave you seriously blue.

Don’t worry, Miss Piggy. We’ve got your back. Hold your snout up high, take our advice and you’ll get over the toad in no time.

It’s okay, be a pig in a blanket – Allow yourself to mourn the loss of your relationship. Get under the covers, turn on a Lifetime movie, indulge in a pint (or two) of Ben and Jerry’s and throw yourself one big piggy pity party.  Just be sure to put a time and calorie limit on your huffing and puffing.

Contact him? When pigs fly!  Don’t plan on calling or emailing Kermit, ever again. Harsh? Maybe, but going cold turkey or in your case, cold frog, will help you move on faster. Block him on Facebook and stop following him on Twitter (and around the neighborhood). Erase him from your cell phone.  Even though your hooves make it hard to dial, if you’ve got his number, you might be tempted to call.

Refuse to be pig headed. Your friends want to help you through the breakup. Don’t be stubborn. Even if you are not in the mood to talk or see them, let them comfort you. Friendships are the best medicine for a broken heart.

Now’s not the time to try pig tails. Call the salon, book a deluxe pedi with a deep piggy massage. Roll around in the mud, or rather mud bath. Living high on the hog is the best revenge. However don’t make any drastic changes to your look. It’s not the time to trade your golden locks for a red pixie.

Don’t sweat it. Oh, that’s right. Pigs don’t have sweat glands.  Still, the sentiment is the same. Keep the breakup in perspective. No matter how bad it hurts right now, before long you’ll be back in Hog Heaven with your new Mr. Right. After all, even your favorite friend Jennifer Aniston finally got hitched!
