A Letter To The Guy Who Unexpectedly Broke My Heart

You are shallow, inconsiderate, and my God are you selfish. Yet somehow you still broke me.

A Letter To The Guy Who Unexpectedly Broke My Heart

I've been told that the relationship after a toxic relationship will be the hardest one. And it was. I needed a lot of reassurance, which you were good at, at first. I explained my hurt to you. I talked to you about some of my darkest moments. I broke down my walls for you. We would laugh for hours together. Then you left.

But you didn't actually leave; you simply stopped putting in effort. The good morning texts stopped and I no longer heard from you until the evenings. You stopped calling me babe or baby; which I know to you seems so silly, that I got upset over that. But I got upset over it because I could feel you slipping away.

I held on so tight for so long. Too long. I let you pop in and out of my life, secretly hoping you would come to your senses and stay. But you didn't. I even entertained the idea of our relationship just being sex. Thinking that maybe you would miss what we had at the beginning and miss how caring I was to you on. But again, you didn't.

You quickly turned into this guy who didn't know what he wanted. You told me you liked spending time with me. You told me I was amazing and that if we didn't work out that it would be your loss; yet you let me go.

You left me so confused and hurt.

The saddest part is that I have questioned my worth every day because of your indecisive decisions. I keep wondering why I wasn't enough. I can't wrap my head around the fact that it was so easy for you to act like I didn't exist. Especially after I would re-read our text messages all the way from the beginning. I sit here and cry wondering where it all went wrong. And I know, you probably think I'm being dramatic but little do you know, you're the first guy to make me feel alive again. And that to me, was special.

So you broke me. You destroyed whatever peace I had created inside myself. I now feel like I took ten steps back from all the progress I've made. It hurts. I want the pain to stop. I wish I could go back to the day we met because I would have stayed in bed all day so that I could save myself from the heartache you've caused.

We grow up watching fairytale movies with the picture-perfect endings. We watched love grow and prosper in ways, 9 times out of 10, doesn't happen in real life. Love is so complicated. I believe what we had was more complicated than it needed to be. I believe that you didn't put your all into this because you're scared it could be the real deal. I feel sorry for you because I know what I have to offer and I know you will now look for me in every girl here on out. But you won't find a single girl that is down for you the way I was. It truly is your loss, baby.

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.

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.
