"Strumming My Pain With His Fingers - Two Times"

When you're going through a rough time, people come up with all sorts of advice to get you through it.  Unfortunately, most of that advice either doesn't apply or is cookie cutter generic - but you overlook that because these are usually people that love and support you, unless you decided to blab your problems to the whole world, and in that case I recommend you invest in therapy.  I strongly believe in honesty and sharing is caring and so forth, but its never healthy to put your pain on public display (haven't we learned anything from reality TV?).  Sometimes pretending is the only thing you have left, it's like therapy for the broke and restless. 

The best piece of advice I've gotten is the following, it's simple but direct, and implies everything without needing extra explanation, it was the end of the discussion:

Lindsay, you are not the type of girl that guys get over, you're the type of girl guys try to get past.
