Getting through a breakup is rarely ever easy, and one of the hardest parts is figuring out how to fill the free time you'd normally spend with your ex. Fortunately, watching a movie is a great way to power through the painful emotions that come with a breakup. However, depending on who you ask, the types of movies people find helpful can vary. When people shared the movie that got them through their worst breakup, it's clear that everyone's approach to selecting breakup-friendly content is different.
For some people, watching a movie that's about a failed relationship can be a therapeutic way to process their breakup and reflect on what might've gone wrong. Others might find any movies about relationships will only remind them of their ex and prefer a feel-good movie as a distraction. So, when choosing movies to watch in the weeks or months after a breakup, it's important to consider what you're hoping to get out of the experience. And while it might seem tempting to keep to yourself during the healing process, having a movie night with your crew can feel much less isolating. For anyone who's going through a breakup and needs some movie recommendations, these Redditors have got you covered.
