Exactly six months ago, the world became a dark and lonely place when Zayn announced he would be leaving One Direction.
Millions of hearts were broken, tween girls everywhere lost their minds and it became hard to picture life without him.
Since that moment, fans have been doing everything they can to rebuild themselves.
They've looked to family, friends and Twitter for support. The fandom came together and became stronger than ever.
Harry, Louis, Niall and Liam have gone on without Zayn, releasing two singles, "Drag Me Down" and "Infinity," from their upcoming album, Made In The A.M.
The future may look bright for the band, but Directioners need this day to mourn the loss of their blessed Zayn Malik because since he left, things just haven't been the same.
The fandom came together again today to support each other on Twitter with #6MonthsWithoutZayn.
Fans were overwhelmed with emotion when they realized it's been six whole months.
People are feeling broken and lost without Zayn. They need him.
They've looked to the lyrics to help them through the pain.
