Surviving a Breakup: I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends

Recently, the "situationship" I had going on for the past while ended. The end certainly reminded me as to why I try not to date or get attached too much (especially when there are red flags!), because of the aftermath. The hurt. The pain. The questions. All of the nights I lay awake at night wondering, "What is wrong with me?" or "Why am I not good enough?"

So naturally, I turned to my group, my core, my sorority sisters. We may be long removed from college, but they're the tried-and-true people I can count on. Trust me when I say, they don't judge me. They don't judge what I say, how I feel, what I think. They lift me up. They listen and sympathize. They roll their eyes when I tell them something that was said to me. They tell me I can do, and deserve, so much better. And they're right. They aren't pretentious or feeding me lies.

Sometimes, all you need to get through a particularly hard breakup is a night out with your friends. I'm so lucky to have them, and count on them in good times and bad.
