Mayim Bialik is sadly single for the holidays.
The “Big Bang Theory” star wrote about her recent break-up on her website Grok Nation, getting candid about how she’s coping.
“My love story is nothing particularly exceptional. I mean, he was — er, is. I was an exceptional iteration of myself with him. For five years in fact. And now it’s over,” Bialik wrote of the relationship in a Thanksgiving blog post.
“If ever there were a story that should have ended not like this, I feel this might be it,” she continued. “But he has his own will and much as I wish I could control his will, I cannot. And so here we are.”
Bialik also admitted the break-up coming just before the holiday season is making things more difficult.
“There is rarely good timing for a break up. But most certainly, the worst time is now. In case he is reading this, I’m just meh with this timing. Because say what you will, the holidays are a time to not be recently broken up,” she said. “I know this much is true. The air is full of clarity and possibility. Cheer abounds and people seem friendlier (except for that guy who called me ‘f***ing stupid’ in front of my 10-year-old for walking too slow at the mall). Commercials tell me this is the time of year to buy the woman you love expensive jewelry. It’s also when people get proposed to. And I would be lying if I said it didn’t enter my mind that this holiday season might hold a promise of a secure future for me.”
The actress also shared some of advice on how to overcome loneliness, including exercise, not taking your phone with you during workouts, not listening to sad music, knowing your limits and finding perspective.
“As for me, I’ve got a half bottle of Manischewitz, four cats, and a wicked puzzle waiting for me,” Bialik added. “And for now, I am grateful in my tears and in my sadness for small blessings. They abound even now.”
