Boys can be brutal and it sucks to take the brunt of it all. When it all hits the fan, it's okay to want to fall apart. Trust me, I want to as I type this. One minute things are going so well, and the next thing you know he blocks you and doesn't tell you why. Sickening, considering we dated for MONTHS!!! So instead of crying tear stains into your pillow, here are some other ideas for you.

1. Go to the shelter and pet some pups

Who knows, maybe you'll find your perfect good boy while you're there and it'll make all of the pain go away. I know when someone important to me walked out, I knew I had Charlie and Stella to love on. Animals are magical in that sense. They can tell just when you need them and what you need at that time!

2. Go grab a beer with the girls

Giphy

Nothing is better than going out on a Monday and having a beer with your girls. They're always going to support you and your drinking habits...plus they're a great shoulder to cry on when you've gone through a break up. Drinks heal wounds, it's a proven fact because that was the medicine of choice back in the day. Heal them hearts girls.

3. Take a mental health day

It is okay to not be okay. Trust me, I'm a mess. Take a day off! It'll be worth every minute. I have used a majority of my sick days on mental health days. Cook your favorite meal, go to the dog park, go to the movies, go eat some damn ice cream, and binge some Grey's Anatomy while you're at it. Have a great day to yourself! It can be life changing.

4. TREAT YO SELF

Giphy

Go buy that hot outfit you have ALWAYS wanted to wear downtown! It will be totally worth it when you see how smokin' you look in it! It's okay to spend money on yourself! Don't feel selfish about it. Money was made to be spent on more than bills and essentials. You were made to do more than pay bills and go to school! WORK IT GIRL!

5. Get your nails done

Giphy

Getting your nails done feels like the best thing this world has to offer at that time. It's just a simple thing that can change a girls view of the world. Want cute palm tree toes for summer? Cute fall pumpkins for Halloween? You can have it all, girl. Plus most places can offer you a discount if you get both your feet and hands done at the same time. My poor nail lady knows my life story; I can tell her ANYTHING and I know she'll listen to me rant while allowing me to enjoy Fixer Upper on the television.

All in all, taking the time to cope from someone important walking our of your life is so needed. It's not something everyone can get over in a day, a week, or even a month. When you love someone; it's heartbreaking to watch them leave, let alone leave you, block you, and give you zero warning or reason. Hearts break, but there are so many exciting and fun things to do to heal.

11 Things Psychology Majors Hear That Drive Them Crazy

No pun intended.

We've all been there. You're talking to a new acquaintance, or a friend of your parents, or whoever. And then, you get the dreaded question.

"So what are you studying in school?"

Cue the instant regret of picking Psychology as your major, solely for the fact that you are 99.9% likely to receive one of the slightly comical, slightly cliche, slightly annoying phrases listed below. Don't worry though, I've included some responses for you to use next time this comes up in conversation. Because it will.

Quick side note, these are all real-life remarks that I've gotten when I told people I was a psych major.

Here we go.

1. So are you, like, analyzing me right now?


Well, I wasn't. But yeah. Now I am.

2. Ugh so jealous! You picked the easy major.


"Lol" is all I have to say to this one. I'm gonna go write my 15-page paper on cognitive impairment. You have fun with your five college algebra problems, though!

3. So can you tell me what you think is wrong with me? *Shares entire life story*


Don't get me wrong; I love listening and helping people get through hard times. But we can save the story about how one time that one friend said that one slightly rude comment to you for later.

4. Well, s**t, I have to be careful what I say around you.


Relax, pal. I couldn't diagnose and/or institutionalize you even if I wanted to.

5. OMG! I have the perfect first client for you! *Proceeds to vent about ex-boyfriend or girlfriend*


Possible good response: simply nod your head the entire time, while actually secretly thinking about the Ben and Jerry's carton you're going to go home and demolish after this conversation ends.

6. So you must kind of be like, secretly insane or something to be into Psychology.


Option one: try and hide that you're offended. Option two: just go with it, throw a full-blown tantrum, and scare off this individual, thereby ending this painful conversation.

7. Oh. So you want to be a shrink?


First off, please. Stop. Calling. Therapists. Shrinks. Second, that's not a psych major's one and only job option.

8. You know you have to go to grad school if you ever want a job in Psychology.


Not completely true, for the record. But I am fully aware that I may have to spend up to seven more years of my life in school. Thanks for the friendly reminder.

9. So you... want to work with like... psychopaths?


Let's get serious and completely not-sarcastic for a second. First off, I take personal offense to this one. Having a mental illness does not classify you as a psycho, or not normal, or not deserving of being treated just like anyone else on the planet. Please stop using a handful of umbrella terms to label millions of wonderful individuals. It's not cool and not appreciated.

10. So can you, like, read my mind?


It actually might be fun to say yes to this one. Try it out and see what happens. Get back to me.

11. You must be a really emotional person to want to work in Psychology.


Psychology is more than about feeling happy, or sad, or angry. Psychology is about understanding the most complex thing to ever happen to us: our brain. How it works the way it does, why it works the way it does, and how we can better understand and communicate with this incredibly mysterious, incredibly vast organ in our tiny little skull. That's what psychology is.

So keep your head up, psychology majors, and don't let anyone discourage you about choosing, what is in my opinion, the coolest career field out there. The world needs more people like us.

Short Stories On Odyssey: Roses

What's worth more than red roses?

Five years old and a bouquet of roses rested in her hands. The audience-- clapped away her performance, giving her a standing ovation. She's smiling then because everything made sense, her happiness as bright as the roses she held in her hands.

Fifteen now, and a pile of papers rested on her desk. The teachers all smiled when she walked down the aisle and gave them her presentation. She was content then but oh so stressed, but her parents happy she had an A as a grade, not red on her chest.

Eighteen now and a trail of tears followed her to the door. Partying, and doing some wild things, she just didn't know who she was. She's crying now, doesn't know anymore, slamming her fists into walls, pricking her fingers on roses' thorns.

Twenty-one and a bundle of bills were grasped in her hands. All the men-- clapped and roared as she sold her soul, to the pole, for a dance. She's frowning now because everything went wrong, but she has to stay strong, for rich green money, is worth more than red roses.
