1. Be Honest
We tend to hide our feelings. Don't feel like you are being a downer if you tell your friends your honest feelings. Marie says that the phrase "the truth will set you free" is true.
2. Get out and Be around People
Don't be a hermit and think you have to figure it out all alone. Fill up your social calendar to get out of the rut.
3. Take Action
She recommends her book "Make Every Man Want You", which she explains is not a specific relationship book but a book about kicking ass in life. She even says to maybe call a friend, do some cleaning, take a class, etc. Do something small even if you think it has no relevance.
4. Forget about Motivation
Marie talks about a tweet that states that losers wait for motivation. Winners get shit done. Often, people just wait. Happy and productive people do not wait. Get into it! For example, get into your work.
Doesn't seem too hard. The four suggestions are baby steps to the path of recovery. Sometimes life is rough, but when it is, don't wait! Do something, anything, no matter how small. You can do it!
