Breakups happen. Breakups yield possibility. Sometimes things go well, but this is not one of those times, um-kay? Face reality. You are young, girl. And a young-love breakup is like having punagrass in your vegetable garden. It's tough to weed. And those who love to eat fresh, organic food, or alternatively, spread the beauteous power of their wonderous love vibes, feel nothing but pain for the perceived loss. Yes, we want to see love grow, and grow, and grow, but unfortunately, every now and then, there are snags in the great garden of love. Even love hits a drought, now and then. If you believe in global warming, then maybe love is for the birds. Let us stay positive. And more importantly, let's keep it real.
What you need to know is this pain is real. The hurt you feel because he dumped you on your birthday, via the text message function of the so-called smart phone, is akin to real pain. Take an aspirin. Get a massage. Ride a bike.What ever you do, resist the urge to have your besties send revenge texts. Although it may sound like a good idea to let your girls text him their thoughts on your breakup, (and maybe, theoretically, it sends the message that you are not one to be bounced on, like some trampoline), and maybe this would temporarily help you regain your momentum, would it also not be the case that you would be holding on to something that is long gone?
A relationship in which one party calls it done, via the text, is not, a relationship, at all. The whys of this horrible drama will cling to your soul - until you neutralize the memories with lots, and lots, of retail shopping. Unless you are strictly celibate, when it comes to the use of credit.
What can you do to distract yourself that would be more wholesome than a hunger strike? I totally recommend you listen to this song: Landslide; it is a song that was written, probably before you were even a thought. I put the link on here just for you because you are young, and this is a song about not getting swept away by change, or getting swept away by change; I am not really sure what it is about, but I really, really like this song. That is why I want to share it with you. Finally, if you survive this break up, which occurred on the day you were born, but not the year, you can survive anything! Plus, Stevie Nicks is the bomb-goddess, to which all who have been dumped, can meditate upon. Cheers. And you will be just fine.
