Kristen Stewart May Be Missing the Silver Lining in Her Split From Robert Pattinson

Love & Learn 8

kristen stewart with instagram fan's momOMG, you guys! Kristen Stewart actually SMILED the other day, so she must be over Robert Pattinson. No, really! She took a photo with a fan named Gaby's mom in Malibu three days ago and had a sort of part-smirky, part-smiley, part-kill-me-now look pasted on her face, so she's clearly doing at least at least partially okay in the wake of The Big Split 2.0.

Reality check: It's not like we can really deduce all that much from this one photo. (Or ANY for that matter, since KStew is someone who could potentially look miserable even if she won the lotto, was reunited with Rob, and took home an Oscar all in one day.) But there is more to be said about her current state of mind, according to sources close to the actress ...

The sources tell HollywoodLife.com that it's definitely been difficult for Kristen, noting that she "misses her best friend. It’s like a part of her has died and she is still going through the grieving process.” Agh.

But thankfully, she's got a really amazing support system helping her get through this particularly tough time. One source elaborated:

Kristen has been just laying low, hanging out with her closest friends and trying to stay out of the spotlight as much as possible.

This actually seems to gel with what Gaby had to say about Kristen's meet and greet with her mom when she posted the image on Instagram. She reported, "She was in my mom’s restaurant in Malibu with some friends — she wasn’t alone."

Whew! Well, this is all definitely good news. Even better news than what we've heard Rob has been doing, I'd say. Mostly because of the laying low part, which I think can actually be more conducive to accepting and getting over a tough split than going out and partying your pants off. In fact, I feel like she could take it even further ...

After a tough breakup, sure it's great to work on leaning on and and shoring up relationships with friends and family. But I think it's just as important to work on your relationship with yourself. Take care of yourself. Get to know yourself again -- as a single person but also just as an individual -- not one-half of a couple, a spouse/girlfriend/lover, etc. Spending time doing things you love (hiking, yoga, running, reading, watching a obscene amount of DVRed television, you know, whatever) or finding new activities to love. Having a pefect excuse to do all of those things for yourself is not only the silver lining of a gut-wrenching breakup -- but it really can help you move on in a meaningful way.

Let's face it. After a relationship's demise, we just miss being HAPPY -- maybe as much or even more than the relationship itself. That's what Kristen should be focused on right now. No doubt her friends will be able to help along the way, but I'm sure figuring some of it out on her own will do her a world of good.

What's the best way you've ever gotten over a bad breakup?

I think the only thing that can help you get over a break-up is time. You have to go through the grieving process, understand what went wrong, and then you can move on. Rushing into a new relationship may seem like a balm, but that may backfire in the long run.

I agree. Kristen should get a way from LA for a couple of weeks. Some spa far away from everyone and everything would be great. She is young. I know it feels like that the world has ended but it is not true. There are great thing ahead of you. Your life is just starting. If all the rumours with RP and KP are true you are in much better place already than you were a month ago...You have them out of you life now. Enjoy it!

Maybe we would see her looking sad if the relationship had been real and not a contractual agreement for Summit!

Eh, they're both young, so whatever.  Her life is just that - hers, hoping they both fine 'the one' after they grow up some more.

This two are really in love, not a contractual agreement with Summit. Her PR people didn't do a good job for her being on the street with bunch of friends and faking a smile.  Glad she is laying low, going to the beauty salon and spa.  Happy she will keep herself busy the coming month for new film, meet new people.  I agree she should have some me time, evaluate the whole situation what when wrong, change her image, her outlook of things surrounding her, be more self sufficient, focus just herself not the relationship, and most of all NOT to rebound  on dating for awhile till she is sure that the next one is the right one.  But, I have such a gut feeling that Pattinson will be crawlintg back to her (don' know why I feel this for her).

Kristen, moving on is a hard road for anyone. But, you have alot of friends, family, movie projects(without Rob), and maybe even strike up some new friends other than stars? Yes, before exciting life there was just you in fact! Take that as a complement, not criticism. Go out and find new people other than rumor-gossip kind. Stay close to family of course, but find new beginnings in the things you enjoy and you will find love again, but take your time! All these gossip tabliod magazines, dont read 'em! They're nothing but garbage, and your new beginings are more important & have some down time for yourself,too. Just being quiet has some good benefits ,too.Take care & enjoy your life as it moves along with all the good things life has to offer. have a nice day

Go have some fun Kristen. Rob is a stick. Pull him out and move on. I know it will hurt and he will always have a piece of your heart. There is no man on this earth worth your hurt. One piece of advice I would give Kristen, don't go get another man right now. Rebound love can only hurt more. Give yourself time to heal. I hope Rob chokes on what he did to Kristen. He is a spoiled Momma's boy who lives in a fairytale world. Kristen paid the price for her mistake and Rob just kept making her pay. I hope is Katy Perry is involved she and Rob will be unhappy together. If she is not, who the hell is she to give advice about love. Look who she has been married to and has dated. Yuck! If Rob wants sweet and innocent his is barking up the wrong skirt. Stay strong Kristen you owe it to yourself.

Get a grip people, Kristen CHEATED on a man who loved her and who was FAITHFUL to her despite being coverted by many other females. What Kirsten needs to learn from this is that she is culpable for her actions and that she is human and not free to trample over anyones feelings. Lets face it, when she was photographed with Rupert she KNEW she was hot news and a mere mortal who is not a celebrity would be far more discreet than she was when playing away from home. Learn from your mistakes Kristen and don't do it again to any other man that has the misfortune to fall in love with you. And for all you people out there who are dumb or misguided enough to defend a CHEATER, pause for thought, would you be forgiving if YOUR partner had cheated on you? And as for Rob, he tried to forgive but as I know from personal experience forgetting and trusting again is the hardest thing to do cos the pain of loss of trust is too hard a pain to bear more than once.
