A new year promises so much potential and a lot of good things that are yet to come. Now it's time to do your part, Candy Girls. You can't have the best things in life if you keep holding on to the past and carrying all the unnecessary baggage with you in the coming year. So we leave you with this list of guys who have made dark marks on your heart this year, giving you that unnecessary load you shouldn't be holding on to now and in the coming days.

  1. The guy you've been in like with for quite some time, but never really had the courage to talk to. A new year is coming and unless you're promising yourself (and we mean, you'll really get around to doing it this time!) that you'll at least try and talk to him, you should just let it go. What are you going to do with your feelings, anyway? Just bury them and let them die a slow and painful death?

  2. The guy who has friend-zoned you. You're friends and that's good. But then again, who are you kidding? The more you stay in touch with him and get close to him, the more you fall in love with him. Girl, you have to give yourself space first before you can finally get over him and call him just your friend. Until that time, you're only torturing yourself by being so near him and yet feeling so far away from him at the same time.

  3. The guy who's been treating you like crap. Hey you, wonderful lady. You don't deserve to be treated like you didn't have a heart. You're beautiful and wonderful and are an amazing young woman. If he doesn't see that, then he doesn't deserve even a second of your time. Get out of that relationship and learn to love yourself more, so the next time you love someone, you know what you deserve and what you don't.

  4. The guy who's just stringing you along. Been in a non-relationship for who-knows-how long? Give him the talk and ask him if he wants to take things between you seriously or not. If not, then it's time to leave. You're putting yourself in between and that's a cold dark place to be in. 90% of the time, you'll just be left feeling like you don't have any right to feel anything because you're not offish. The new year offers a fresh start and unless he wants to start something great with you, you have every right to leave and stop him from keeping you on your toes.

  5. The guy who broke your heart. He left you hopeless and broken. You've been scared to trust people again since he left because you believe that you're just putting yourself out there to get hurt. But here's the thing, you just have to learn to fall in love with the amazing person that you are and learn to trust in the beauty of the unknown once again. You just have to heal your wounds and trust us, everything's going to be fine again.

But remember, Candy Girls, you don't have to wait for a new year to leave these guys and get over them. Every day is a new beginning after all.
