Oh heartbreak my old friend...

The first time I experienced heartbreak was when I was 9. He was my bench partner, a sweet innocent young boy who loved to take a lot of space.

Our one-sided love story soon ended when he switched seats. On the plus side, I finally started paying attention to what my teacher was teaching, ha!

Honestly heartbreak isn't that bad you all! As Alia Bhatt famously says in 2 States “Tragedy is the new cool”. Although, she might be a total hypocrite, seeing how she ends up with Arjun Kapoor her words nevertheless have consoled me on many a ‘stay-in-bed-with-a-tub-of-ice cream’ kinda days
