Tooting my horn for a second here! I needed to style some looks for you guys and take some photos but didn’t have anyone to help me over the weekend. I kid you not, I grabbed a chair from my kitchen, stuck it in the car and dragged it around campus with my phone taped to the top of it to take these pics! They turned out great though and I’m so impressed with what a chair and a phone can do haha. Now on to the real reason you all are here.
You all know that I love to write on here about topics that are greater than fashion. I love to pair a cute little outfit with some words that could relate to others, especially girls my age. I’ve written about what it’s like to move so much, what to expect your freshman year of college, and more.
I follow some bloggers and read their posts too, and started wondering why no one writes about breakups. A lot of us talk about struggles in college and even try to give dating advice, but no one talks about breakups–I found that interesting and gave me a little spark to fill the gap!
So, breakups. At the age of 20, I feel like I’ve been in enough relationships and witnessed enough of my friends relationships to have a good idea of breakups. First thing’s first, there’s no one true breakup. And it doesn’t even have to be with a significant other per say. What all these breakups have in common, though, is that they all suck.
Some suck for an hour, some suck for a week or 2, and some suck for maybe a year or so. Breakups are kind of funny though–I can totally remember a few times when I was sitting there all sad and then an hour later I was completely fine haha!
The worst breakups are the ones that are dragged out foreverrrr. And I mean forevverrr. It’s way easier said than done for some relationships to just end and that be it, but if it could be that easy then that would be great.
Unfortunately, everyone deals with breakups differently. I say that it’s unfortunate because it would be great if there was some kind of formula we all followed that worked perfectly. Not just for our own sake, but for our friends and others who want to try to help us.
Most of the time, in my own experience and what I’ve seen with my own friends, the vast majority of things really don’t help, and the cliche’s were right–time really is the best thing. I’ve had countless moves across the country in my life, which meant ultimately losing a lot of close friends which I do believe count as breakups. Over time, you make new friends and it becomes waaay easier, plus time is something we can always count on.
To keep this from being the longest post ever and rambling on, I just have a few things to sum it all up. I mainly wanted to talk about breakups because they’re something we all go through, with significant others, friends, and even family, and a lot of times it’s nice to have someone or something to relate to. It seemed to me that no one wanted to write about it, so I thought I would.
Whatever the breakup is or whoever it’s with, it likely won’t be fun (no need to sugar coat it). But time is always the best thing and we all have something that can make us feel better at least temporarily, whether it’s girls night with ice cream and popcorn, or going for a run.
If you’ve made it this far in my post thanks for reading! It’s not the most fun topic, but this is why I started my blog in the first place–to talk about things others can relate to. Have a happy humpday!
