An Open Letter To My Friend Going Through A Breakup

To my amazing friend,

Though I have not known you for long, I feel closer to you than some people I have known since I was in Kindergarten. I know you are going through a rough time right now, and I wish more than anything that I could take all of your pain away so that you would never be sad. Seeing you this way truly breaks my heart.

I know that things are hard right now, but trust me, it will get better. You can get through this, and I know for certain that you will. Please know that I am by your side and that I am here for you, always. If you need a shoulder to cry on, I will be there. If you want to rant on about how much you hate him, I will be a listening ear. If you want to order pizza and ice cream and forget that he exists, I'm certainly up for that.

Please understand that I feel the same pain that you do. It hurts me to see you this way, and there is not a person in this world that deserves to feel the heartbreak of a breakup, but especially not you. I know this is a cliche, but everything happens for a reason. Try to think of this as a learning experience and try to take the good out of the situation instead of the bad. Try not to pity yourself or put the blame on you, because you are not the problem. This boy is missing out on one of the greatest girls in the world, and that is truly his loss.

You are probably feeling so many emotions right now; from confused, to hurt, to angry, to just plain sad. And these emotions are all ok to feel. Don't bottle them up! If you feel the need to cry, then just cry. If you want to scream, then do it! (Though maybe into a pillow so your dorm neighbors don't hear!) Me and the rest of your friends will all be there to guide you and help you through whatever emotions you are experiencing. Even if you don't think that we are here to help you, I assure you that we are. We support you and just want the very best for you.

Remember, you lived without him before he was in your life, and you can live without him now, too. You have wonderful and caring friends who would drop everything to help you and a great family who will support you. This is just a bump in the road –– after this is over, you will come out that much stronger and more confident. There is a boy out there who is perfect for you and will love you for every single thing about you, you just have not find him yet. Sometimes, to find your prince you have to kiss a few frogs first.

So, my friend, I hope that after reading this you know that I, and so many other people, are here for you during this difficult time. It may seem like the end of the world, but I promise it is not. You are beautiful, kind, strong, smart and caring, and whoever is missing out on that is absolutely crazy.

Love,

Me

With each incessant numbing ring of the phone call, I could feel the betrayal coiling around me like the phone line, squeezing me tighter.
