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.

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket. Now all you have to do is decide on what movie to watch, but you know one movie will not fulfill your need of relaxing all day. A movie marathon is the only answer to your problem.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

The decision-makers of Yale's law students have invested in therapy dog sessions in order to reduce stress. In 2011, Yale Law Library had a sign-out sheet for their certified library dog. The 30-minute sessions were equipped with unconditional, stress-busting puppy love.

Law Librarian Blair Kauffman stated that the free, three-day pilot pet therapy program at Yale Law Library launched as "a positive addition to current services offered by the library."

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
