“Something EXTREMELY Important.”

Break-ups suck. Plain and simple. Whether you’re on the receiving end or the delivering end, it’s never ever fun.

I don’t need to express the complex mix of feelings involved, because I believe most of us have felt it. We’ve all felt it, yet we’re all convinced no one in the history of the world could be feeling such heart ache, such pain. That we’re the only ones alive who have lost something so important.

These ideas aren’t wholly mine, but come from one of my favorite episodes of this American Life. It’s episode #339: Break-up. A much recommended listen to anyone going through the heartache of a break-up. It has a brilliant act talking about break-up songs, and one of my favorite monologues ever, posted below.

It’s a beautiful/funny reminder from a beautiful/funny creature there are much more important things in life than failed relationships…
