The process of ridding one's self of a messy, emotional past. Usually associated with relationship failure and the 'healing process'. Whatever routine or traditions one uses to take their thoughts away from the pain at hand; indulgence in music, art, writing poems, drinking, exercise, shopping, meditation.
"Drinking Grand Marnier with boxes of tissue was the usual kick start to the girl's calicatation after being stood up yet again at the restaurant."
