Being with my ex was like being drunk constantly; I made stupid decisions and woke up hating my life every day. But you know how when you're hungover as f***, you eventually feel better if you puke and get it out of your system? That's what leaving him felt like. It f****** sucked at the time, but now that he's out of my system and I've been drinking metaphorical Gatorade and eating metaphorical cheese burgers and enjoying life, I feel so much better without those toxins in me. tl;dr, being love drunk isn't always a good thing.
