10 Quotes To Help You Get Out Of A Breakup Funk

10 Quotes To Help You Get Out Of A Breakup Funk

Don't worry, we've all been there.

1. "No girl should ever forget that she doesn't need anyone who doesn't need her." -Marilyn Monroe

The worst thing you can do is continue to revolve your world around a person who doesn't make you their main priority. Save your time for someone who will treat you like the queen you are.

2. "Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together." -Elizabeth Taylor

Moving on from a relationship or fling can be difficult. Your confidence is super low, and all you want to do is lay in bed with a bowl of cookie dough ice cream and binge on Netflix. However, this just leads to a drawn out pity party and prevents you from moving on. Go about your day as you normally would. See your friends. Keep busy. Create a new "normal" for yourself without your ex, and you will feel like yourself in no time.

3. "Even if it ends badly it's worth it if it made you feel something, if it taught you something." -Taylor Swift

Every person you date teaches you another lesson about what you're looking for in a significant other. They add to your character and also teach you about yourself. Never regret a past relationship, because it made you who you are today.

4. "I will not try to convince you to love me, to respect me, to commit to me. I deserve better than that; I AM BETTER THAN THAT...Goodbye." - Steve Maraboli, Unapologically you: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

If you feel your significant other pulling away, and you find yourself chasing after them, it is definitely time to bow out. You deserve to be loved. If they want you to beg for it then they don't deserve your time.

5. "I cannot compromise my respect for your love. You can keep your love, I will keep my respect." -Amit Kalantri

You are more important than your relationship. If you feel as though you are sacrificing yourself to satisfy someone else, move on.

6. "Just because a relationship ends, doesn't mean it's not worth having." -Sarah Mlynowski

Don't give up on relationships all together just because your last one did not go as planned. Someone else will be able to make you feel that spark again.

7. "One day they'll realize they lost a diamond while playing with worthless stones." -Turcois Ominek

Being dumped for another person has to be one of the worst feelings on the planet. No one wants to feel as though they were replaced by someone else deemed "better." Well, they are not better. And eventually your ex will realize that.

8. "When my absence doesn't alter your life, the my presence has no meaning in it." -unknown

If the person you're seeing doesn't mind being away from you, then don't give them the satisfaction of seeing you when they want to.

9. "You lose yourself trying to hold onto someone who doesn't care about Iosing you." -Tablo

Don't change yourself to keep someone else in your life. It's a big world. Someone else will cherish you for who you are.

10. "If you're brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello." -Paulo Coehlo, author

Being the one to pull the plug on a relationship can be just as hard as being dumped. Are you making the right decision? Will you regret it? Will you be lonely? If you are willing to take that chance and walk away from something that isn't working, you will find happiness.

A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle Schooler In 2007

I will always love you, Akon.

Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parents' house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your seventh grade dance. So if you were around in 2007 and feel like reminiscing, here is a playlist straight from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2007.

A College Girl's Thoughts On The Podcast 'Call Her Daddy'

Alex and Sofia, if you need a third member, I am available.


If you haven't heard of the podcast "Call Her Daddy" you must be living under a rock. So crawl out and let me enlighten you. This podcast is not only life-changing but is building a bridge to mend the confusion and weird small talk between girls and guys. There have always been assumptions that girls who are sexually comfortable with themselves are sluts. You can try to say I'm wrong, but it's there. It's everywhere. Alex and Sofia are changing the way that girls see their sexuality and the way guys view sexually open girls.

I think it is freaking awesome.

I have always been the girl with no filter who says whatever she is thinking, so when I first heard this podcast I felt so at home. I love knowing that there are other girls out there who will say whatever they want and not worry about what other people think. If you aren't really an openly sexual person you can still learn something from this podcast. I think more people should unapologetically be themselves and live life how they want to.

I have felt so empowered since listening to this podcast.

Alex and Sofia are cracking the codes and exposing all the weirdness girls and guys feel about each other. Helping girls know how to respond to texts, how to get the guy you like to notice you, how to be confident in your relationships. It's so uplifting and lighthearted. Believe it or not, these girls actually know what they are talking about. I also love that they both are so confident that they can tell their embarrassing stories. Media today and social influencers would never admit to pooping outside in their yard (Episode 20), but I'm sure they have gross stories. We are human and we can be nasty sometimes. It's OK!!!

You might as well laugh at yourself instead of feeling bad.

On the sexual end of things, I think this podcast is educational while still being funny. When you're in college, you are not going to your mom anymore about boys. Much less asking her for sexual advice. I think Alex and Sofia answer basic questions on how to be safe and how to be great (lol). Even if you aren't sexually active, you can keep their ideas under your belt while you wait for that special someone.

All in all, I am absolutely a #DaddyGang member. I have the merch, I listen to every podcast, I freaking love these girls. We all should live more carefree and not worry so much about what other people think.

Alex and Sofia, hire me.
