Melanie US a good point because slackers said arm everyone deals on or Dakota dwells. Jennifer how are you if you. I mean you know we we you breakup was somebody. Even if it was your idea after a little time passes when you look back to your brain street ditto series that's always think about this ability. Get the bad yeah we if you if you on the box were absolutely that's exactly what is otherwise your your brain can't even really talk. If we keep your concentration camp at some point. You're gonna look back you remember the friends you made the come. A chance and not to sack to direct killing everybody else just what your brain doctor brand's suppresses the bad so so melodies like. No let's do and grab a bad remember the bath hold onto it and get rid of that appeal last he sets that's good advice thank you Melanie. Serra. I. Compare breaking up to being in concentration camp to tune just briefly I don't. To remove myself welcome from bad. The sixers I feel I feel he is angry tweets. Coming in already and I feel like maybe weekends as our president not judges think eraser what do we do to get over regular. I'd like it'd urged the underlying mine I need to type or six years definitely broke up out of nowhere. And I just started doing after every morning period.

There's a cleansing that pattern and only through a ninety into even listen with your with somebody familiar it's HM wash away all the bad stuff between you so it's like. So I don't know I still think relations and or answer but I like that again I think he's a call. All we're gonna keep going with this the real image faceless a home somebody just a FaceBook in the asked what was the series' first. Request you ever played throws a girlfriend when you were a jock earlier in your career do you remember when was I action I really don't uneven knowing did that okay really know where we answer. There's no way there's a there's no snow and getting it Eric just like yeah and how I I would how do you over it. Well I think the only way to really get over it as I understand that he made at this stage and they can just not tone has stacked. I am not tone it can hurt a problem Mitt people have been detained because they own making get me. Managed doesn't sweat what did I do and why did he do this reject me I eat this. Not to look at it outweighed that I read Jack get their relationship I don't know why she should know why that the media has. Area growth spurt. But that's her first foray friend a likely candidate inked extracts all what's probably while I I and whatnot all. I am. You know she camper on his stop. So then it's and you gotta say it's not about me it's not my song well right at soccer ball and he made its way she cannot. Sake you know I mean she just let him around has stopped.

You do oh yeah internalize it just go out and ends and we feel like my response I don't ruin this it's like no I'm not worthy it's not. Do whatever it is. Now I mean you you add your own part in it but it's surely it'll just her he's like dad you've done some serious therapy Erica I think and we appreciate it didn't because it just me I've heard those from the heart of the past few phrases and energy is bringing next summer might have to go back to internal touch yeah. Home and brought the yeah I guy how do we get over so many. I think the best way to get over somebody is to get under somebody else. You are not the first person to say that do you really did you think what percentage of women you think actually believe that these guys get past a guy movie is. I don't really mean it's true that a big part of it is having somebody kid pre occupy. That. Impeach bickered occupy that indeed basically if you wanna traction and coming happened at work or go to London new movie it. I mean that new excitement even if you know it's not gonna laugh.
