On a broken heart

It’s been months and I can’t get her out of my head. I think about her in everything I see on television, books, and just out on the street. We were together a long time and now she’s very happy with someone else. How do I put this out of my mind for once and all? I feel so unhappy all the time, and worthless. She was such a big part of my life and now she’s someone else’s.

Slow your roll, Phil Collins.

It’s never easy dealing with a broken heart, but you’re dangerously close to entering a pathetic, self-absorbed fugue state where every thought that escapes your lips comes out in the form of shitty adult contemporary song lyrics.

Get a fucking grip.

Falling out of love takes time and a sense of perspective. You can’t necessarily control how long it takes, but you sure as hell can pull your head out of your own ass long enough to look around and realize that one day soon you’ll have to quit wallowing in the stink of your own self-pity. Nobody can do it but you.

Good luck, ya’ sorry bastard. Not that you’d believe me right now, but I promise, not only will you get over this girl, but you will also fall in love again.
