25 Things We've Wanted To Say To Our Exes At Least Once

Because "it's not you, it's me" doesn't quite cut it.

25 Things We've Wanted To Say To Our Exes At Least Once

At some point following a difficult breakup, most of us have probably thought once or twice or many times about reaching back out to our exes. Maybe we want to tell them something we couldn't find the words for before, maybe we want to scream curses at them until our voices crack, or maybe we just want to tell them we love them and that we're sorry it had to end this way.

Whatever the case may be, here's a pretty inclusive list of most of the things you've probably thought about telling your ex (and hopefully, you never did):

1. "F*ck you"

2. "This is definitely your loss"

3. "Not surprised to hear you're still single"

4. "I hate that I still think about you"

5. "You really were awful in bed"

6. "What the hell was I thinking?"

7. "Us breaking up was the best thing to ever happen to me"

8. "I miss you sometimes"

9. "Did I really mean so little to you?"

10. "I hope she/he is everything you could ever want"

11. "I deserve better than you/You deserve better than me"

12. "Was she/he really worth cheating on me for?"

13. "I hope you're happy"

14. "I loved you, but I've moved on now"

15. "Again, f*ck you"

16. "I'm happier than I've ever been"

17. "I hate what you did to me"

18. "What's lower— the way you treated me, or your standards?"

19. "Best decision I ever made"

20. "I hope you still think about me"

21. "Did you ever even love me?"

22. "I don't think I'll ever forgive you"

23. "It just wasn't meant to be— it's neither of our faults"

24. "I knew you were too good to be true"

25. "I love you, but I'm letting you go"

Whoever they are, they're probably not worth chasing down again just so you can relive the heartbreak all over again. Let the memories of them fade away and I promise you, you'll be happier in time.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
