48 Things I Would Say To the Person Who Broke My Heart

48 Things I Would Say To the Person Who Broke My Heart

We all have that person. The one that shattered our world into pieces. The one that hurt us more than anyone else ever had. No matter how far we move forward from this person, the memory of that pain still lingers. We still think about the things that we did wrong or that we could have done differently. We still think about the good times that came before the bad. Above all, we think about what we would say to that person if we could really tell them how we feel about them. There is a lot that could be said, but many of us could start with a list like this:

  1. You disgust me.
  2. You broke me.
  3. You made me think that you would always be there.
  4. You lied, over and over again.
  5. You made me believe in something and then you took it all away.
  6. You didn’t care.
  7. You acted like you cared, but it was another lie.
  8. You wasted my time.
  9. You caused me pain.
  10. You scarred me.
  11. You left me all alone.
  12. You let me think it was my fault.
  13. You taught me not to trust anyone.
  14. You taught me not to trust myself.
  15. You played games that only you could win.
  16. You monopolized my mind.
  17. You made me feel like a different person.
  18. You made me feel weak.
  19. You made me feel empty.
  20. You made me cry.
  21. You gave up on us.
  22. You left.
  23. I deserved better.
  24. I never needed you.
  25. I didn’t think I could do it on my own.
  26. I was honest.
  27. I believed in you.
  28. I believed in us.
  29. I cared.
  30. I put my time in.
  31. I thought we were happy.
  32. I was naïve.
  33. I didn’t pick up on the signs.
  34. I couldn’t play your games.
  35. I thought that I meant something.
  36. I learned that I did mean something.
  37. I learned that I could do it on my own.
  38. I learned that I was capable of love.
  39. I learned that I didn’t have to be broken.
  40. I knew that I was better than that.
  41. I now know what I want, and it isn't you.
  42. I am a new person.
  43. I built myself back up.
  44. I am stronger because of you.
  45. I am confident.
  46. I am happy.
  47. I don’t hate you.
  48. I thank you.

We need to always remember that the person who broke our hearts was a part of our lives for a reason. They may not have been the best chapter in our life story, but without that chapter, we would not be who we are today. Everyone suffers heartbreak at some point, and it is OK. Heartbreak makes us tough; it makes us strong. It reminds us that we can move forward even when we think that our world has ended. It is good to think about what you would say to the person who broke your heart, but it is even better to truly move forward and leave that pain and that person behind.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
