I recently had my boyfriend break things off suddenly after two and a half years. We live together so I had to quickly rearrange plans and figure out how to move in with my parents again... Currently I am trying to figure out how to rebuild my life while also feeling more positive about the future. I know time is a big component, but has anyone had a similar life-changing experience? I am feeling pretty chaotic trying to think of future plans, getting the move done, future relationships, and trying to make a life while I am with my parents in a new state.

I know how you feel. I actually moved abroad with my boyfriend of 3 years, there were problems but I thought we (well I, since he didn't think there was an issue but there were), we had this big plan set for starting life in another country and once I realised things weren't going to work out I had to break up with him abroad. I had to lend money from my family for a flight home, I cried the whole way knowing I had completely changed my whole life path in a matter of hours. But it was the right thing to do for me. I moved back in with my parents, had to readjust my goals and set goals that were just for me, and focus on myself. I felt guilty for a long time about breaking things off with my ex but I had no doubt it was the right decision. I was depressed for a while until I got sight of the future again, and now I'm (as a mature student) going to uni to study. It is hard hen you think your life is going a certain way and certainly if you were the one to be broken up with, it must be a devastating blow. But you will overcome it. Start thinking about things you want to achieve and do for yourself, things that you couldn't necessarily do before.
