Say good-bye to summer with a heart that's full of wisdom from that summer fling you got into in the spirit of #YOLO. Now isn't that the perfect way to bid the vacay farewell and greet the new school year hello? Things, like that summer fling, happen for a reason and one of the biggest reasons they happen? Because you needed to learn a lesson, a significant lesson about love and life. Here are a few things you might want to take note of while you're busy nursing you're aching heart:

1. The heat can cause serious brain damage. You can't help but ask yourself once in a while, "What was I thinking??!!"

5. Love lasts if it's meant to and that depends on both of you, not on fate or a random circumstance. If it's not meant to live another day, you have no other choice but to let go.

7. That this line from The Notebook is true: "Summer romances end for all kinds of reasons. But when all is said and done, they have one thing in common: They are shooting stars—a spectacular moment of light in the heavens, a fleeting glimpse of eternity—and, in a flash, they're gone."
