Break-ups suck. There's no way around it. And even worse is when you try to get over it, only to see that your ex is doing a much better job of moving on.
It's kinda like how we feel about the news that Zayn Malik has been seen visiting a recording studio, just DAYS after he left One Direction to "live like a normal 22 year-old". I mean, really???
It's JUST like a bad breakup:
You're past the honeymoon period with your bae. It's been great, and you're happy, but lately they've been acting a little distant.

Then out of the blue, it happens: they suggest you both take a break for a while.
But, as it turns out, a break wasn't enough.
Zayn is not leaving ... He can't leave ... Oh My god ... Zayn we need you ! Please don't go please Zayn please ! @zaynmalik— ✖ 2012 tbt ✖ (@GabriellaHoltt) March 25, 2015
They say it's not you, it's them; they need some time alone to figure themselves out; etc, etc.
"WHAT WENT WRONG? WHAT DID WE DO? DO U HATE US? WHAT DID WE DO WRONG? DID WE EVER MAKE U GENUINELY HAPPY?" questions i want to ask zayn rn— a,, z :( (@uansanity) March 27, 2015
And maybe you're heartbroken, but you understand that you can't make them stay. You try and make the breakup as healthy as possible.
I wish you all the best Zayn. This is too much for us but I know that you just did what you know is best for you. pic.twitter.com/5fkcsDEaWF— ZAYN COME BACK PLS (@MsDeeOne) March 25, 2015
You grieve, but you realise this was probably a long time coming.
There is now a whole new meaning to One Direction's album, "Four" #ZaynMalik— zach (@zacheese1) March 25, 2015
So there's no use wallowing in sadness. It's time to get positive!

But just when you start to feel like you're getting over it: BOOM.
Your now-ex is already moving on?? After all that stuff they said to you???
My little sister is screaming "TRAITOR" at my Zayn poster— we love you zayn (@MORANSAESTHETIC) March 26, 2015
You're angry. You're hurt. Of COURSE part of you wants to call them out.
@zaynmalik hi zayn! just wondering how your life as a normal 22 year old at a fucking recording studio is going? aha (:— r (@raynftharry) March 26, 2015
But you know that wouldn't do either of you any good. And they're obviously happier now. So you feel stuck.
TORN BETWEEN: 1. Zayn you're an idiot if you go solo. I hate you. and 2. It's okay Zayn I'll support you no matter what.— Zayn... | bday gurl (@niaciniall) March 27, 2015
You resolve to focus on your own life for now. Because you know, in the end, you'll be okay; and you'll always be friends.
All the love as always. H— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) March 26, 2015
