Someone I know, once told me told me some time ago, what to do when your heart is heavy and you want to call the person who's doing the damage. I still find this advice quite relevant even today. Write their number on a slip of paper and then immediately delete their information from your phone. Take the slip of paper and fold it (feel free to use the provided heart note tutorial). Find the most dense and heaviest book on your to-read pile and flip it open to the middle, placing the paper inside. If you want to contact the person again, you must read the book until you reach the page you've placed their number within. If four years passes and you still haven't even cracked open the book, it means it really didn't matter as much as you thought it did at the time. And yes. Turns out it didn't matter, at all.
Now whoever inherits my books will find them littered with boy's telephone numbers at the rate I'm going.
Oh and the last part of this exercise, go wash your face, listen to some Washed Out and quit feeling sorry for yourself. It's unbecoming.
