Dumped and Sad. 10 Things not to say to someone who’s been dumped.
Heartbreak is a really crappy feeling. Sometimes its even like your actual heart hurts, like you can’t breathe cuz every part of you feels let down. A pressing, heavy but empty feeling.
Even if it’s not true love, nobody likes to be rejected. Then there’s the whole companionship thing, loneliness sets in and it sucks. You question yourself, you question what went wrong, what you could have done differently and sometimes even if you weren’t head over heals you still wonder what it is about you that isn’t as loveable as you thought.
I’ve felt this way a couple of times and I’m fine now. I’m over it and wanting to find that feeling again but this time the real one that lasts and is true.
Speaking not only from experience but also from certain instances that I know of there are things that are often said with good intention but definitely don’t help.
People tend to point out what they think were the flaws of your relationship or the person you were dating. It’s hard to know what to say because nothing can really make it stop hurting other than time and realizations but there are some things not to say to someone who’s hurting over a break up:
- He was a jerk
- Nobody liked him
- Everybody liked him
- You’re better off
- You’ll find someone better
- You’re too good for him
- It’s his loss
- It wasn’t meant to be
- He didn’t deserve you
- You’ll find Mr. right when you least expect it
