Both girls attended the Teen Choice Awards knowing they’d run into the man that broke their hearts
When it comes to love, it’s a fact that Joe Jonas is a bonafied heartbreaker. He’s called it quits with a bevy of beauties including Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato and Ashley Greene. Unfortunately, all three of his exes were in attendance at the Teen Choice Awards last night. Should they have stayed home to avoid seeing him or held their heads up high and braved the show as they did? Should YOU avoid awkward encounters with your ex? Although the 21-year-old singer seems to have matured with ending his latest relationship, he’s known to be a bit of a cad when calling it quits.
Taylor and Demi didn’t fare as well.
He was best friends with 18-year-old Demi, and still told the world that it was he who did the dumping, saying, “I realize over the time we have shared together that I feel I care more about our friendship right now. It was my choice to breakup, but I love her as a friend.” He then brought Ashley on tour to rub salt in the wound.
He broke 21-year-old Taylor’s heart as well by dumping her over the phone. “You know what it’s like, when I find that person that is right for me, he’ll be wonderful. … When I look at that person, I’m not even going to remember the boy who broke up with me over the phone in 25 seconds when I was 18. … I looked at the call log — it was like 27 seconds. That’s got to be a record,” she has said.
All three girls got their revenge at the Teen Choice Awards Sunday night, however, by winning awards while Joe left empty-handed. Taylor took home a whopping five surfboards including the Ultimate Choice Award, Demi walked away with two including the Acuve Inspiration Award and Ashley was awarded the Choice Scene Stealer prize.
Knowing that he broke the hearts of Demi and Taylor, at least, should they have attended the awards show? What should you do in a similar situation?
Of course the girls should have gone! They — and you — should never hide from an ex. It’ s letting him have power over you all over again.
Why hide at home? Take the opportunity to prove that you’ve moved on. Do as these ladies did and look completely fabulous. You don’t have to receive an award to come out a winner. When you look amazing and feel confident, he’ll realize that you’re not pining for him anymore, that you’re strong and happy with your life.
Never let someone you’ve loved in the past prevent you from living your life in the present.
