He broke up with me two weeks after saying he loved me for the first time. It was a 30 second phone call, and he hung up before I even had the chance to process what he had said.

I texted my best friend, and she immediately left her house to grab wine and pizza- and, in the meantime, also told my mom to call and talk to me until she could get there.

Then we watched Drunk History, and trash-talked guys, for the rest of the evening. By the end, I was dying laughing and had forgotten that I was even sad to begin with.

And suddenly, from such a crappy day, I learned something; Everybody needs love, but sometimes it comes in a different form than what you thought you needed. And that's okay, too.

Because love, in all forms, is pretty dang awesome.

Sorry for your loss...but the good news is, you are that much closer to meeting the one meant for you!

Also glad you have an excellent support system!

I had completely forgotten about this post <3 but seeing it again makes me want to smooch my best friend a zillion times, because I have never felt more loved than I did that night. She's the real deal, and I am honestly so grateful to have her by my side for 15 years. Thank you everyone, I hope you are all doing well! I know it's hard to think that you're loved when the romantic aspect doesn't go your way, but I assure you...YOU ARE ALL LOVED!! If nothing else, I love you, and would hug you if I could.

Celebrate the little victories, their all part of the process of becoming great and new. This is one of them and your last phrase is going on my wall. That’s something I want to read every day!
