Dealing with heartbreak during the holidays is difficult; everyone seems so happy, except you. We know and we get how you feel, Candy Girls. So if you want to just deal with all the pain and the drama today, we've rounded up a few feel-good movies that will surely lift your spirits even for a bit. You can get through this, Candy Girl!
- The Holiday
The Holiday is a no-fail pick-me-upper for those who are dealing with a broken heart at this time of the year. It shows us that some surprises aren't all that bad and that they could even turn into something beautiful unexpectedly if you just let them.
- P.S. I Love You
There's one reason why we still love watching P.S. I Love You even if we know that it's going to make us cry uncontrollably. It's a glorious wakeup call that moving on from someone is also a great time for rediscovering yourself.
What you have with someone (or, in this movie, it's something) may be good but if it hinders your growth as a person, then it may be smart to let things go and make space for the real thing, the good things. That's how Her exactly made all of us feel.
- You are the Apple of My Eye
You Are the Apple of My Eye will teach you that all first loves make great memories and sometimes, they're just that, memories. It may hurt a little whenever you remember them, but that doesn't change the fact that they were beautiful memories with someone you hold so dear.
- Begin Again
We've said it so many times before, and Begin Again shows us this, too: most of the time, happy endings aren't about ending up with the guy of your dreams. Most of the time, it's about you, just you, feeling happy and complete all on your own.
- Paper Towns
There's no point in saving someone who doesn't want to be saved. That goes out to yourself, too, as shown in Paper Towns. If you want to move on and let go of someone, will yourself to do those things.
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower
The Perks of Being a Wallflower not only taught us that "we accept the love we think we deserve." It also taught us that we deserve the best, nothing less.
