Today's OPP is from Sophie:


I was in a relationship for 5 years with my boyfriend. He was my first serious boyfriend and I was convinced we were going to get married. We had an apartment together and everything seemed fine. 5 weeks ago he came home and told me he was breaking up with me and moving out. I was and still am devastated. I cry all the time. I come home and the apartment reminds me of him. I turn on the TV and see something and it makes me think of him. Something happens at work and my first reaction is to pick up my phone and text him but I can’t. My friends and my mom says it will pass but it doesn’t feel like it’s getting any better. I know he’s not coming back so I need some advice how to get over him and stop thinking about him. What do I do?
