We all deal with breakups in different ways, coping however is best for us individually. While Taylor Swift mends her broken heart after breaking up with Tom Hiddleston, she could easily hide away in one of her luxe homes or dash off to an exotic locale to soak up some healing sun. But instead, Taylor’s decided that (on top of heartwarming good deeds) it’s time with her gals that she’s needs.

“It was a very emotion-filled time [they] spent together,” an insider told E! News, adding, “It was a very fast and heavy relationship.” Being a short relationship doesn’t always make it easier to get over, especially if was a particularly intense or “heavy” hookup. But Taylor is holding her own. “She is doing OK. Tom and her at times were on two different pages.”

It makes sense, then, that Taylor is taking solace in those who are on the same page as she is: her friends. Spotted around NYC since the split, Taylor has been side-by-side with various close gals who are surely helping Tay through her latest breakup. “She is hanging with her girls for emotional support and friendship. She has a close set of women around her.”

So may reasons having an A+ #girlsquad is the best.
