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

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

Every single one of us has a story.

I don't say that to be cliché. I don't say that to give you a false sense of encouragement. I say that to be honest. I say that to be real.
