Twenties Girl Excerpt 1

'More talking?' Sadie looks appalled. 'How are you going to forget him if you keep on talking about him? Darling, when things go wrong in life, this is what you do'. She adopts a knowledgeable tone. 'You lift your chin, put on a ravishing smile, mix yourself a little cocktail....and out you go'.
- Twenties Girl, Sophie Kinsella.Page 97.

Its easier said than done (yes, I admit it) to just ignore whatever pain that hurts you and move on. But then sooner or later there's no running away from reality that he would never come back.

So suck it up and move on.

Sadie has a valid point. Her approach might sound a bit non-challant but then why should we girls sit back, reminisce and mop around? Why must he get the satisfaction of leaving and thinking he has the upper hand?

We should gather the courage and find our own way.

I am reflecting. I am gaining strength. And I believe that I will get through this.

To all the girls out there who is in my stillettos (or something more or less similar).....the world doesn't end with one guy.

Just get the courage to smile. The most ravishing one. *wink wink*. And see how the others come to you.

*crossing my fingers. otherwise, we can tell Sadie she's wrong*

Dear Zue, i have been a silent reader and i am in the same predicament as you, my heart was broken to pieces by a guy and though it was already a month since it happened, i can still feel the pain every now and then... and i was thinking, what is wrong with me... but i know, it is not easy to simply move on just like that... i'll heal but with time... thanks for the insights... :)

Hi DD,
oh my...kita break-up pada bulan yang sama...what are the odds?

I know its painful....sekarang ni pun i still feel it on a daily basis...tapi as they say...what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Just don't give up on yourself okay, sebab we definitely deserve better things in life.

am glad to know i am not alone... i hate to admit i still cry whenever i think of the person... though i try so hard to forget, but the harder i try, the more it seems to come and haunt me...

thanks zue... *hugs*

Dear DD,

you are not alone.It happens to all of us actually, but then there's no shame in letting out the tears okay? Just let them all out so that once semua dah abis, you can move on!

Its weird but it works okay. Just ignore apa orang kata about there's no point crying over spilt milk whatso-ever....look at this this way, when u dah abis cry a river, it all dry up and the sun will shine and you can go have a good day.


just buzz me if you need to talk okay!
