The Heartbreak Chronicles: The Late Night Therapy Sessions with My Friends

It's late at night and I'm wide awake. Why, you might ask? Oh, just the usual reason - my friends have a knack for falling for the wrong people and keep me up at night whenever they're heartbroken and need me as their therapist. Let's be real, I'm not just pretty but also wise, hence, their therapist.

It's like watching Taylor Swift's love life unfold in front of me, except it's not just one person, it's all of them. One minute they're singing "Love Story" and the next they're "Blank Space-ing" the person who broke their heart. It's a never-ending cycle.


It's like Ross dating Rachel, and then Rachel dating Joey, and then Ross dating someone else, and then Rachel dating someone else, and then Ross dating Rachel again. It's like watching an episode of Friends on repeat, except it's not just one episode, it's every episode.


And then there's Chandler dating Janice. I mean, seriously, who keeps dating someone who says "OH MY GOD" every two seconds?


But that's how my friends keep falling for the wrong people and I'm left picking up the pieces.


It's like watching

- Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, constantly chasing after Warner and getting her heart broken, only to end up with the right guy in the end.

- Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl, falling for the bad boy and then realizing he's not who she thought he was.

- any romantic comedy movie, where the protagonist goes through the ups and downs of love, only to end up with the right person in the end.


But in real life, it's not always so clear cut. My friends are constantly jumping from one relationship to the next, never taking the time to heal and move on from their past heartbreaks. They're always searching for that perfect love, just like in the movies, but in reality, it's not always so easy to find.

So, here I am, wide awake at 2 AM, trying to give my friend advice on how to move on from their latest heartbreak. But let's be real, I'm not a therapist, I'm just a friend who has seen it all before. And as much as I love my friends, I can't help but wonder if they'll ever learn. Will they ever stop falling for the wrong people? Only time will tell.

In the meantime, I'll just make a cup of tea, and wait for the next heartbreak to come my way. After all, I am their therapist, and I'm pretty sure Elle Woods, Serena van der Woodsen, and all the romantic comedy movie protagonists would approve.
