To The Ones Who Broke Me

It's not just one person.

To The Ones Who Broke Me
Handyman How To

"Say what you will about me, but you'll never break me." Well, yeah... this time you got me.

I know that words and actions from another person shouldn't bother me, but it's the people you think care about you that end up hurting you the most. You know, that one friend that would always be there for you, the sorority sister you thought you could trust, or the guy who went way too far. Those people you would call you friends are the ones that can break you down.

So this is to all who broke me, it's not just one person.

You hurt me... The betrayed hurt. I thought I could trust you, I thought I could be myself around you and know that it was a safe place that wouldn't get spread around and announced to the world. It's nothing I can't get over, but it will take awhile. When you break someone's trust it's hard to go back and nothing's worse than feeling betrayed.

You took away friendships. You made people believe so much about me that wasn't true, or a skewed view of how it really happened. You made people think I was a terrible person, something I try so hard to avoid.

It felt like no one was on my side. Of course, I have other friends around but I could always feel eyes burning into my back as I walk through campus or saw you. I don't know why I let you make me feel this way but, for some reasons, your words and actions are something I just don't think I can forgive.

For a while, I felt lost without you. I would feel uncomfortable to see you or have to be in the same room as you. Even now, I'm not a huge fan of you but it's gotten to the point where I don't care either way. Either you're there or you're not and either way, I'm fine. But I really wish it wasn't that way, I'm not a fan of holding grudges but there are some that I can't seem to let go.

I want to forgive you and act like nothing happen because the best revenge is showing the people who hurt you that you're happy? Well not in this case, I want you to know how much you hurt me so that maybe you won't hurt the next person. But you probably won't care or you'll just brush it off because it's better to look like you have no heart than to have an open one.

So yeah, you broke me. But I have to stop caring so much about people who don't care about me. You find out who your friends and the whole time you were just stabbing me in the back. I'm forgetting about you, you're just a memory that I don't see myself wanting to relive or even remember. That's it! You're on your way to becoming a repressed memory. I'm on my way up, you were like cement on my feet, I'm breaking through the person you broke.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
