So everyone has that one ex that they miss so much. For some reason, you believe that they may still be the one. I mean we all have that ex right? WRONG! Lol I've never thought of an ex as the one that got away. I immediately start thinking about how dumb they're going to feel when they realized what they've lost. But I have an ex-bestie who is probably feeling like she just lost her soulmate. He was a great guy, so I understand her thought process. HOWEVER, I dont support the fact that you think you can't be happy without another person. I'm sure the break-up sucked. I'm sure you feel like things could've gone differently. I'm sure you wish you could change how things went down. Well...I don't. I don't wish you could change the past. That break-up was supposed to happen. That pain was supposed to be felt. And that man is not meant to be in your life...for the time being at least. Break-ups suck. But it's time to move on. *twirls away*
*in my best Yonce voice* "Cause you a bug a boo. You buggin' what? You buggin' who? You buggin' me! And don't you see it ain't cool." *drops mic* Exes have super powers. They can sense when you've moved on from miles away! It's like they can smell your happiness...and they must attempt to screw it up. I have an ex from high school who still sends me those "hey stranger" text when I'm back in town. The freaky thing is that I never tell him when I'm going to be home, he just knows! It's literally been 6 years and 3 "serious" relationships later...and he's still there. Be gone bug a boo....be gone.
I still can't listen to Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience" without cringing. That is how much I hated The Chameleon after I got over his fuckery. Every song that once had a great memory, made me sick! I have a friend, let's call her Miss Emotionally Driven, who just got out of a horrible break up. Well, she was watching Magic Mic, and the song Pony came on. Who doesn't love Pony, RIGHT? WRONG! Her ex would play that song constantly, so it reminded her of him. She started to cry hysterically in her seat. Not just cute pageant girl cry, she did her ugly cry. There was snot people, snot! *face palms into a sigh*! I know exes suck, but let's not let them ruin our impeccable taste in music.
I feel like if it's been a reasonable amount of time, we can just delete our exes from our past. Like there should be a "delete history" button and we should be able to use it. I started following an ex on snapchat a few months ago, and I literally had to give myself a talk after watching his story. He is literally doing nothing productive...ever. He wakes up, drinks lean, and raps for the chat of snap. I literally face palm every time I see him. It's like looking back at your first email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. You're so disappointed in the past/semi-ratchet version of yourself. But hey, the past is the past right? *kanye shrugs*
Sometimes we get comfortable after a break up. A little too comfortable. So comfortable that we end up kissing that ex. *kanye shrugs* #oops I have close friend who still kinda dates her ex. They're not together...but they still go on dates. And it confuses me, but I'm not in their relationship so it's really none of my business. *sips tea*
You think of this ex when Adele plays. And you can act like you don't, but girl-their face flashes whenever the word heartbreak is said. I get it. I didn't understand what heartbreak was until The Chameleon screwed me over. Y'all know the story by now, I spent a whole summer crying. That summer changed me in so many ways, so many good ways. I understood vulnerability. I accepted being alone. And I challenged myself to rebuild...and I did. I left that horrible summer taking over the world. And that is what you will do. We all get hurt, and it sucks. But look for the lesson within the pain, and let it fuel you.
Some people are mature enough to become good friends with their exes. Well, I'm petty-and I hate every one of those asshole. #sorrynotsorry I know a girl who is bestfriends with her ex-boyfriend...and I think she's lying. I think she's secretly plotting to ruin his life. Lol I'm serious, I think she's going full out Law Abiding Citizen on his ass. *grabs popcorn* If you are great enough to enter a friendship with an ex then I snap and twirl in your honor! Because I'm not doing it * Kanye Shrugs*
One of my friends just realized that he ex who "couldn't commit" is engaged. *face palms into a sigh* I know that hurts sister-girl, but he wasn't meant to be in your life. You dodged a bullet princess. Now keep your head up, your tiara is slipping.
