things you learn when your world turns upside down.

Warning, cliches that I never thought existed to follow. Guess that's why they're called cliches. 

  1. Your true, true blue best friends become apparent, very fast; Your ho-hum friends become apparent, very fast; The people who do not have your best interests in mind become very apparent, the fastest.

  2. The thought of now having two closets becomes a sick, cruel little joke, because the reason why you now have two closets is heartbreaking.

  3. Your home becomes the Princess Palace, and pretty soon that is how you refer to it in all text messages. Mostly to your mom, but that's neither here nor there. It's an easier pill to swallow and sounds cuter to say.

  4. You keep wanting to order pizza, but then stop at the thought that the delivery guy might be the one who is also a lady killer. So, no pizza deliveries at the Princess Palace.

  5. You need to invest in a night-light, because you're a scaredy cat (↑ see above).

  6. Being naive is just as dangerous at 24 as it was at 17. Except this time you don't put up with bullshit, and you are more than confident saying so.

  7. Having hope, and faith in the universe is the only thing keeping you from falling apart. The "everything happens for a reason" tattoo you got because of said person, has moved up in ranks to be your favorite one.

  8. Every CD in your car is now unlistenable because every single song reminds you of something in your memory bank, and those somethings make you cry really quickly, so silent drives become mandatory.

  9. So do dinners at your mom & dad's house, because eating isn't really a priority at the moment.

  10. Meg Ryan movies are the best.

  11. Unless it's waterproof, don't even bother with the make-up.

  12. 5 & something years is a really long time.

  13. But one week feels like 6 months.

  14. Your dye your virgin hair blonde, because why the f-ck not.

  15. Do you know what's a fun way to spend a night? Look at old pictures of happier times. It's very soothing and I'm sure not at all detrimental to your health.

  16. The only person you want to talk to about this is the one person you shouldn't, so you settle for sleeping in one of their t-shirts that you sprayed with their cologne.

  17. It doesn't matter how old you are, heartbreak hurts just as much now as it did when you were a teenager. Actually, it hurts way worse now.

  18. Sometimes, trying your hardest isn't enough. Being madly in love is not enough.

  19. If you love something very much
    Let it go free.
    If it does not return, it was not meant to be yours.
    If it does return, love it as hard as you can for the rest of your life.

  20. You hope and pray, and then you hope and pray some more, that the reasons for this make sense soon, and then you cross every finger and toe, make wishes at stars, and hope & pray some more that this works out in the Fireworks, Fairytale and Beatles' songs way it is in your head. Because that's all you can do, the rest is up to fate.530589_10151248899780787_596668573_n

  1. oh no ... this is sad, hang in there girl! it does get easier with time; allow your self the time to heal, and be very gentle and kind to yourself (especially with your thoughts). don't be afraid to lean and on your friends and family, you know you would do it for them. :)
