How to Get Over a Breakup, Miley Cyrus Style


You can generally tell a lot about what a person is going through based on their social media patterns.

Millennial’s often choose to vent their frustrations with the world, or people, to their online followers.

Maybe they just got married, lost their job, finally reached their fitness goals, or in Miley Cyrus’ case just broke up with their boyfriend.

Cyrus had been in an exclusive relationship with Patrick Schwarzenegger since last November, but the pair recently called it quits.

The emotional toll of a breakup can send our emotions on a roller coaster of intense highs and lows. A 2010 study published in the Journal of Neurophysiology revealed that emotional and physical pain share neural pathways in the brain.

That means your brain sends signals to your body that a breakup inflicts pain.

Elle has compiled a “Guide to Getting Over a Breakup,” using Cyrus’ latest posts, which range from animal cuddling to making out with her friends.

Her behavior, while always sporadic, apparently indicates she may be in the grieving process after losing a loved one. But there is hope.

For all of those who recently had their hearts broken, take it from Miley Cyrus and her quick how-to guide for post-relationship behavior on Instagram.

1.) Morph yourself into a stripper using apps on your phone:

  2.) Cuddle with animals as much as possible because they’re loyal and offer unconditional love:

#noplacelikehome @nasa #earthday Earth day should be celebrated like all these other holidays…Not with everyone giving and getting presents but singing songs REJOICING, being with FAMILY, being filled with GRATITUDE for what we’ve been given by the world! Nature is selfless… She just keeps giving… But she will eventually run out (CA) for our kids and their kids if we don’t return her graciousness… Earth day should never stop being celebrated… Because every time we look at the sky…. Walk bare foot in the grass, stick our toes in the ocean or jay lay in a bed of puppies just remember… There is no place like home… Aka planet Earth…. #sotakecareofit #wecantadaptoanotherenvironmentsotakecareofthisone
