I know its a cliche, but breakups are never easy. Thank God we have the new Fitz & The Tantrums
video for "Fools Gold" to teach us how to cope with our heartache.
The first stage is denial. Immediately after you are (literally) pushed out of someones life you think they're going to realize their mistake and come save you (perhaps with an inflatable kiddie pool).
Next stage is hope. If you dont want me someone else will. As we continue to free fall through life we can only wish that some handsome stranger will realize our pain and pull us out of it.
The final stage is acceptance. Even though we expect to come crashing down to a painful pavement end, we realize it's not so bad on our own and are able to (again, literally) land on our feet and walk away in one piece.
