5 Things You Should NEVER Say To Someone Going Through A Breakup

It sucks to break up with someone.

Having to deal with the emotional heartbreak that comes with a breakup and the millions of questions from people, it can be hard to feel like you will ever be okay again. With the questions comes many attempts of people saying things that are supposed to make you feel better. These can range anywhere from I've been there too, to confessions of how badly they wanted the two of you to break up. Most people tend to have good intentions with the words they say to someone struggling through a breakup, however a lot of the time the words they speak fall short of the goal.

Knowing what should and should not be said during a breakup is important and knowing specifically why it is not a great thing to say is even more important. This list gives the top five worst things to say to someone going through a breakup.

1. You'll find someone new 

If your friend just broke up with their significant other, they probably aren't ready to find someone new just yet. Hug them and validate their feelings, don't go pushing them into a new relationship.

2. Finally!

You may not have liked the relationship, but your friend did. Don't make rude unnecessary comments about a relationship you only saw from the outside.

3. I never liked them 

Let's face it, at the end of a relationship everyone feels like they should point out all of the faults that were in the relationship. But, do your friend a favor and just save the rambling about everything that was wrong with the relationship. It won't help anything at this point.

4. Don't try to stay friends 

It might be unrealistic to stay best friends, but your ex is someone that you loved a lot and cared about, of course, you're always going to care about and want to be friends with that person.

5. I know what you're going through 

No way! Really! Obviously, I am not the only one that has ever been broken up with, but you most definitely have never experienced the same feelings I have.

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.
