Remember What Matters Most

Naturally, painful transitions like breakups force you to gravitate towards things or people you value most, such as great friends. Great friends are hard to come by, so keep them near — especially during a time such as this, when you need to vent, release a gut wrenching cry, repeat the same story over again or just need some good company. Appreciate everyone you hold with high regard and be better to them and, most importantly, be better to yourself.
