Summertime usually means summer crushes! But what happens when things don't work out exactly the way you were hoping?
If, like Selena Gomez, you've been going through some tough times lately, famous funny lady Amy Poehler of Ask Amy has some wise words for getting happy again!
It’s understandable to spend a few days feeling bummed out, moaning about the situation to your buds. In fact, we've heard that Selena has been leaning on her longtime BFF Taylor Swift, who has been calling her up to ten times a day and setting Sel up with other girlfriends while she's away on tour!
But it’s important to get back into the swing of things as quickly as possible. Amy suggests a great way to help you (and Selena!) feel better faster — use your free time to volunteer!
"You know when life serves us things that makes us uncomfortable sometimes we can use that uncomfortable moment as a growing moment, a learning moment," Amy explains. "Instead of hardening our hearts and believing that we’ll never find love again we can open our hearts and try to see how this vulnerability and pain can make us a more compassionate person.”
Volunteering provides you with a great opportunity to meet new people and find new passions. But don't take our word for it, listen to more of Amy’s words of wisdom in the video below!
