A big take away is the importance of friends during this process. She gets deep and personal with her story, which is a big comfort for those who are going through heartbreak right now.

She reminds us that we need to set boundaries, that what is meant to be is what will happen and not to allow rejection to make us feel like less of ourselves. Honestly, we thought we were over our last break up, but we felt Breeny’s words in our soul. We didn’t think that we needed to hear what she had to say, but we most definitely did.
