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.

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.

You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
