    Do you hate it because of the inherent truth of it?
    And it is the truth.

    It's not exactly on my top 5 list of things I want to hear post-breakup. But...it's true. "It wasn't meant to be", "This is a blessing in disguise", "It was for the best".

    Yeah, that's fine and dandy, TRUE and all - But shhh. Let me drown in my pool of self-pity for a little bit.

    It's a played out cliche, I'd rather not hear anything. "Meant to be"; give me a break, life is too complex.

    I think there used to be a song: "What will be will be" (the future's not ours to see...)

    Anyhow, I found this:

    Next time I somebody says that to me Im going to hurt them. Other than the obvious cases, there is no way you can give up something so important to you that easily.

    you can make any healthy non-abusive relationship work but you have to be willing to put EFFORT into it.

    people give up too easily
    I know! Some people dont take relationships seriously. They go into it thinking that its not gonna last then they think its okay to give up and leave.

    I was actually thinking of the exact same line!

    Sometimes, people say this because they actually mean it. I told this to a friend once, but because I really saw that there was no possible way that their relationship can work out. They were just too different, and by different I mean their own morals are different!
