Everything I Wish I Could Say To The Boy Who Broke My Best Friend's Heart

Do you even realize how much you hurt her?

1

Watching your best friend get destroyed by someone is honestly harder than being hurt by someone yourself. I watched my best friend go through a period of her life where she was completely heartbroken over someone and tried so hard to keep their relationship afloat. Eventually, she found the strength within her to realize that trying with him wasn't going to work, but still, I know her heart is aching.

There are a lot of things I've wanted to say to the boy who broke my best friend's heart...

First, do you even realize how much you hurt her?

Dragging someone along for so long and making them think that this time things will be different can be BRUTAL. She gave you chance after chance because she believed you. She saw something within you. She wanted to make things work. She had all of the best intentions. Unfortunately, you can't say the same.

I wish you knew how hard it was for me to watch you treat her so poorly. It took everything in me to listen to her and give you a shot. And while at times you were great, and I'll always remember those times, ultimately what overshadows every good moment are the bad things that ended up happening.

I think you need to realize that if you're not interested in really dating someone and putting forth an effort, you shouldn't enter a serious relationship. I get that you want to be nice and make people happy, but entering a relationship you're not really going to put the effort in will eventually end badly. It would've made us all so much happier if you were just honest and said you didn't want a serious relationship if that isn't what you wanted.

I want you to know that you missed out on someone who would've treated you right. My best friend is a total catch, from her big heart and willingness to do anything for anyone to her fun-loving side that's always down for an adventure. She's something that's hard to come across anymore. I wish you luck trying to find someone who will treat you like she could've treated you forever because I know you're going to need it. The type of girls you wanted to cheat on her with aren't going to give you that. Simple as that.

I want you to know that you never, ever again deserve a chance to hurt my best friend, and I think she finally realizes that. But if she doesn't and one day the two of you ponder the possibility of getting back together, don't. It's just going to make the scars even deeper. Things aren't going to change. Leave her alone and let her grow and live her life on her own.

I wish I could look back on your relationship and see you as a good guy. I want with everything in me to look past your flaws and see someone who tried but was ultimately just a little too young and dumb. Sadly, I can't do that. You hurt my best friend too much for me to ever see good in you. I hope that one day you change and can actually treat a girl right, but when I look back on how you treated my best friend, I don't know if I can truly see that happening.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
