All by herself.
Show transcript
00:02
Hey guys, I'm Laura and my boyfriend and I broke up.
00:07
Oh, that sounds so stupid.
00:09
He was the guy that looked like Jesus, except he's not Jesus
00:13
because you know, he broke up with me.
00:14
The good thing is that it was actually mutual.
00:16
We still love each other very much.
00:17
But you know, he wanted to travel the world and I wanted to pursue
00:20
a career in the beginning.
00:23
It's, you feel numb and you feel really, really empty, like
00:28
like, like someone just carved out a hole from out of your body
00:33
and you become bipolar at one point you're listening to man
00:36
hating songs and you feel super empowered and you're telling
00:39
your friends, man, fuck him.
00:40
I don't need him.
00:41
And then the next thing you know, Spotify accidentally starts
00:43
putting Celine Dion's all by myself.
00:45
Oh, you find yourself in a corner smelling his old t-shirt
00:53
Also, everything they leave behind becomes absolutely significant
00:57
from the toothbrush, they left behind.
00:59
So the last piece of toilet paper they wipe their butt with
01:02
you see it and you're like, oh my God, he wiped his butt with
01:05
that.
01:05
I miss him so much.
01:07
Little by little, you know, you start realizing that you're
01:10
doing things that you haven't done in a really long time.
01:12
Like I decorated my room.
01:14
I hadn't done that in a year.
01:16
I started hanging out with friends and I went out and it felt
01:19
really, really good.
01:20
I had a teeth cleaning.
01:21
I hadn't done that since I was dating him.
01:25
People, if you're in relationships, make sure you check your
01:29
teeth and so you start doing these tiny little things that
01:32
you didn't know you could do because you were in a relationship
01:34
for such a long time.
01:35
I called my mom and I told her and she cursed me out.
01:38
She's like, I'm like, oh my God mom, I'm just, I'm calling you
01:44
so you could be nice to me because I'm crying.
01:47
Please don't curse me out.
01:49
Everyone else though has been really supportive of my friends
01:52
my family, it's just annoying to having to tell a story over
01:55
and over again.
01:55
I just want to let the world know we broke up.
01:58
I don't have a boyfriend anymore.
02:00
So what is the mourning period?
02:03
Let me know in the comments, how you could help me deal with
02:05
my breakup or how you deal with your break up.
02:07
But if you could help me out too, that'd be great.
02:09
I do read all the comments and I write back to most of them.
02:12
I'll figure out bye guys.
02:15
Just kidding.
02:16
I'm ok.
02:17
Not really.
