Breakups are fucking stupid.
Sure, it’s nice to have an excuse to be a snotty, puffy-faced, teary disaster for awhile, but overall, I’d say the whole breakup process is pretty fucking douchey. I’m not going to say that I wanted to use my guitar strings to slit open my wrists while wheezing out the painful, melodic tunes of Melissa Etheridge… but something a little less bloody, butequally as humiliating has most definitely crossed my mind.
For the purpose of this entry, I decided to browse the internet for helpful ‘tips’ on how to get over the person you broke up with. This is going to come as a pretty big shock, but everything I found was fucking stupid.
In my search, I stumbled on this helpful picture:
This image was paired with the motivational message “Let go of your negative emotions!”
This guy isn’t letting go of anything. He’s giving a thumbs up while holding a shirt that says “Negative Emotions.” If you ask me, it looks more like this giant douchecanoe is excited by his recent acquisition of a shitty t-shirt promoting an even shittier emo band.
Also: The 90s are over, dudebro. Smiley face t-shirts are out.
...Oh, and this guy is most definitely about to kill those birds.
|Dealing with a break up? Go kill some motherfucking birds!|
One particularly helpful article suggested that I call all of my friends and force them to hang out with me. They encouraged calling everyone, including the people I haven’t spoken to in ages. Apparently, if you’re a disgusting, emotional disaster, everyone has to understand because you’re in a ‘time of need’.
They also suggested I look at all of my old photos to make myself cry like a motherfucking suicidal banshee.
The article assured me that my friends will still love me, though. I mean, who doesn’t love an anxious, wheezing bag of hysteria showing up at their door at 4 am?
I think I might test out their theory.
WHADDUP former elementary school friends. Shit’s about to get real.
As a side note, midway through this article, a helpful advertisement let me know that there are nine magic words that would make my man addicted to me. (That’s the dream, right?)
While I didn’t actually click on the link, I’m going to guess what those 9 words are:
Listen. I realize that list is hardly fair to men and I’m being rudely presumptuous in thinking this magical list of keywords will keep a man addicted to his woman, but bitch, please. Y’all know you’d be excited if your woman said she’d make you a sammie while you screw her in the pooper.
How sexy was that sentence?
I also stumbled on this picture, displaying the utter sadness that one feels when their heart is shattered into a million pieces.
This bitch is sad.
She’s so sad she’s using an umbrella when it’s sunny out.
Her sadness is so powerful she can’t even handle the sun. Except on the bottom half of her face… that part of her face is not so sad.
Oh, and the best thing about this article? It was linked to an even more helpful article called ‘How to Deal with a Broken Rib.”
I’m going to leave the domestic abuse jokes aside.
It's most definitely time for a drink. Or 12.
